    Baseball Told the Right Way
    In-depth Baseball analysis on various topics regarding the sport we all love!

      If you ever choose to listen to me...
    I'm not going to even start talking about the Red Sox, because I assume nobody wants to listen to me go off on some profanity laced tirade reminiscent of Bobby Knight. I can say briefly that I am offering a reward to anyone willing to claim it. All you have to do is bring me the severed head of Derek Lowe and/or Kevin Millar (freshly styled, see photo if you were lucky enough to miss this embarrassment). I haven't decided which one I want more, so I am offering equal money for either, though I would prefer both delivered at once.

    Now, on to the important stuff:
    Many of those who know me have become adept at ignoring some of my more passionate (and irrelevant) moments. This aint one of them. If you ever read anything I suggest make it the three-part series The Washington Post has put out, detailing the three-ring circus that is MLB ownership.

    Seriously, this is a must-read for baseball fans. It's also a must-read for everyone else, but I can't imagine anybody else stopping by this site. Its a very long read, but its well worth it. Find the time to sit down and read this. In the discussion over at Primer, someone suggested this ought to be considered for a Pulitzer, and I happen to agree. Find the time to sit down and read this.

    Part One
    Part Two
    Part Three

    The second and third parts require registering for the paper. I suggest a quick stop to bugmenot.com, but you may like your info circulating around the internet.

    Most of us paying attention already know the story. Bud and his cronies are a collection of sleazy businessmen, used to finding loopholes, exploiting fans, and making money dishonestly. These articles detail exactly how bad it has become. I once thought that I was too harsh on MLB ownership, but I am suprised to find that its actually much worse than anything I could have expected.

    More than anything else, these pieces bring the story to the attention of those not closely following the situation. You dont have to be a baseball fan to realize the impact that a baseball franchise has on an area, especially economically. Maybe, just maybe, these articles will get more people to step up and ask for changes to the way baseball is run.

    Anybody wanting to discuss these in more depth, feel free to drop me an email.
