    Re: Who thinks Baseball is a Joke????

    I don't blame the fans for being retarded, I do however think
    >that Bud Selig IS brain-dead (and on Viagra) to allow Giambi to be allowed on
    >the ballot in the first place. >>>>>

    Under what pretext would Selig keep Giambi off the ballot?

      "Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire are lucky that Major League Baseball isn't ruled by the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Switzerland or they wouldn't even be footnotes in history – they'd be erased from it completely."

        I don't think baseball is a joke. I know baseball is a joke. (It's also a fraud and a disgrace.)

          It also remains phenomenally popular, adding more fuel to teh argument that track is its own worst enemy.

            Part of baseball became a joke when salaries escalated beyond recovery. This stuff - juiced ball players - is not what makes the game a joke. As with the Yankees, their money and inability to win a series with that, juiced players don:t necessarily equate to record-book performances.

            Baseball - as with basketball - needs to take a stand on several issues beginning with salary.

              I just read someplace that the entire estimated payroll of the undefeated Miami team was 1.5 million-45 players.

                  I was thinking the college football team, but I don't think they are undefeated and $1.5 mil seems a little light . . . :lol:

                    He's referring to the Dolphins in 1972.

                      That makes more sense. So that is equivalent to 7 million adjusted for inflation, approximatly. Compared to their current (2003) payroll of 70 million.

                        Sports salaries from 1972 vs. 2003 = apples vs. oranges.

                          Blame it all on A-Rod and Kevin Garnett.

                            Blame it on a local guy - Curt Flood!

                            And I'll add that I am all for these guys getting whatever they can in the way of salaries. Pro sports is entertainment. There is a boatload of money in entertainment and the performers deserve the lion's share.

                              I agree and also disagree. What professional player is worth 250M USD? Sure, A-Rod hits homers and looks good on GQ, but not enough to raise my gate fare by "x" in proportion to his salary.

                                That's not what George Steinbrenner (sp) thought, and he is the guy signing the checks.
