I've watched some KBO. And thanks to @scOtt's shady Russian streaming site I've been watching my boys at 1860 München try to get promoted out of the German 3. Liga. Premier League will restart in a few weeks. I'll be okay for a while.
But MLB and the MLBPA are a bunch of idiots. Can you blame anyone for being apathetic about baseball when they don't seem to care?
I knew someone would make this joke. Tried saying “typical Brooks” to cut it off.
Just going by Rtot, Manny’s best season of +34 was slightly better than Brooks’ best of +33. But Manny has never had another season where he was +10 or higher, whereas Brooks had 13 other +10 or better, including seasons of +32, +23, and +21.
It dawns on me that this is EXACTLY like a strike (or lockout.) There's been a work stoppage, they are negotiating (arguing...) a deal where they can start back up. And now they're at a dead standstill. It's exactly like a strike and will probably have the same affect on a LOT of fans.
Cutting off their noses to spite their face.
There is no baseball equivalent of FIFA (not that that always works well), there is no higher level organization or voice for the good of the game. Landis only got away with being independent because baseball was reeling from the Black Sox. The commish has been a representative of MLB owners for my whole life and years prior to that. Bud took it a step further by actually being an dual-hatted owner/commish. Faye Vincent tried to be a little independent and was swiftly crushed for it.
