Harvard/Allston in Globe's choice for mayoral final

I'm surprised by both who the Globe endorses and that Harvard's aborted Allston expansion plays such a prominent role in the rationale.

Our choice for mayoral final: Menino vs. Flaherty - The Boston Globe
Flaherty contends that Menino... erred twice in controlling Harvard’s ambitions in Allston. First, Flaherty argues, the mayor failed to realize the university was buying up land on the sly, and then he held out too long for givebacks until the economy soured and residents were left staring at empty holes in the ground. All are reasonable criticisms.
