The RockSox vs the SockRox

Will it ever stop? Add two more writers to the list of people who feel obligated to use the "Rox vs Sox" tag line for their stories. I've never been a big Eric Karabell fan, and in his ESPN fantasy baseball(Insider required) piece this week the headline is "Rox vs Sox, fantasy style!". A person I don't dislike, in fact I admire, is Rob Neyer. I love his wit and wisdom on the game, but even he has succumbed to the appeal of titling a piece he wrote this week "Sox over Rox." I've heard that Rob doesn't write the headlines for his blog articles, and if that is the case I still scold him for not bucking the trend and changing it himself.
