Truth is I have really grown fond of disliking baseball . Each team should have the same amount of money to pay players like football. Baseball players are the most overrated and overpaid athletes in the world. At this point I feel MMA fighters have more skill than 90% of most baseball players.
<sigh> Another Socialist ^ baseball fan. I certainly don't like teams having to have the same amount of money and certainly don't like salary caps. That's what made baseball what it is today is the franchises like the Yankess, Boston, St. Lous, San Fancisco, LA Dodgers just to name a few dominating the league and getting some of the best players you ever saw on the "same" team. Football did it for revenue's sake and so, all the crybaby fans of every team might get a chance to see them in the playoffs one day an even the Super Bowl and those owners get their fair share of the profits. But, that's sooooooo socialistic I can't stand it and I hardly watch football anymore.
I love baseball but it really is turning into too much of a business as well instead of the great sport it once was. Players shooting up the PEDS, taking steroids anything to make them more powerful than they should be for the money instead of for the love of the game. I've watched it change sooooooo much since the early 60's.
My favorite team of all time The 75' Reds.
I'll watch just about any game because I just love the sport and I love my beer and krautdogs while watching.
Just like so much of American society we must, for the children, make everything and everyone equal. Lord when will this nonsense stop. When my children were in their young some of the sports teams they played on awarded everyone a trophy or ribbon, score was not kept. My young brats quickly grew bored and disinterested, though almost all the children surreptitiously kept score. One basketball team my daughter played on had a rule requiring players who scored "an unbalanced number of points"(I kid you not) be benched for three-fourths of the game in order to bring "parity to opposing teams and players", my daughter played just a few games before quitting in disgust.
