1 Some friends of mine who have been watching baseball a lot longer and a lot more closely than I have say that the 1994 strike was a tipping point from which the game still has not recovered. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on December 14, 2015, 8:06 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 It's their thing, so it doesn't bother me. What does bother me about the Braves is how they have a celebration every time they make the playoffs by displaying a "Division Winner Banner". If I was a manager, I'd be pissed off, and tell my players NOT to go along with that, even if management said otherwise. Do not be pleased until you are holding that golden trophy -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on October 6, 2013, 1:02 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I can't believe that Braves fans are still doing that stupid tomahawk chop thing along with that annoying chant that goes with it. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on October 5, 2013, 11:36 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 The major problem with baseball is marketing. The NBA and NFL are so popular because they both have excellent marketing. The NBA markets superstars, the NFL markets the league itself, making every game a big event. MLB is super popular in the Northeast, Chicago and California, but it struggles in some other areas of the country because we don't hear about the stars or the league or really anything. I must say, though, that this baseball season is one of the best in recent memory. A lot of talented teams, exciting players, just a lot of fun to watch. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 29, 2012, 1:28 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I wouldn't worry too much about the expansion of teams, but rather, ownership of some teams. You have Peter Angelos in Baltimore who has pretty much wrecked a once proud franchise, you have the ownership in Kansas City who run that team on the cheap, Minnesota ownership who looks like they just decided to wise up and build a team until they got their stadium, Oakland ownership who is just plain incompetent, Pittsburgh ownership who was cheap AND incompetent, Tampa Bay ownership for the longest time who were just ran by idiots, and Miami ownership who believed in firesales. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 28, 2012, 1:24 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Someone please explain to me why baseball expanded into Miami, Tampa, Colorado and Arizona instead of moving existing teams there, especially when this happened at a time when baseball owners were incessantly whining about the need for a salary cap to protect small market teams. They couldn't find four small market teams to move to these locations and cut their losses instead of creating four new franchises (Montreal, KC and Pittsburgh come to mind right off the bat - and two of those are 60s-ear expansion teams which shows MLB has always sucked at expanding)? You don't expand when you're poor. You expand when you're rich. It's one reason I never backed the owners during the '94-'95 work stoppage. That and the scabs. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 11:32 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 The MLB forbade players from wearing hats in honor of 9/11. NYC forbade any members of the clergy, religious groups, police officers (WTF?!), or fire rescue (Double WTF?!) from attending the 10th anniversary of 9/11. What is this world coming to? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 15, 2011, 8:10 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Do I get the ruling? Yeah, but the Mets should of called MLB's bluff anyway, and wore the hats. MLB doesn't do anything, they win because they did something for the real heroes of the country. MLB does something, Mets still win because of the first reason, and MLB looks like MAJOR schmucks because of penalizing the Mets for such an honor. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on September 15, 2011, 5:36 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Not letting the Mets wear hats yesterday in memory of the 10th anniversary of 9-11 was probably the cherry on top of the crap sundae that is baseball under Bud Selig. How he made such a bad decision like this is inexcusable. Salary cap issues, roids, and now this. MLB needs to fire Selig now. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 12, 2011, 2:25 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Meh. Buncha spoiled brat roidheads under a system that goes out of its way to reward the teams with the most money with perhaps the most incompetent commissioner in sports history in charge to boot. Plus the season is WAY too long--the next one seems to start almost as soon as the previous one ends! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 29, 2010, 6:29 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 BigAl, lets put the shoe on the other foot. You are a star player, and people flock to the baseball park to watch you. The team makes millions off of your name, yet you only see a fraction of it. How would you feel? Yeah, some of these guys deserve the millions, but some of the others, its way overboard, and yes, some of the owners do not have guns to their heads forcing themselves to spend millions on guys who really do not deserve it. Thats why I respect clubs like the Minnesota Twins, who know they don't need to spend $200 Million to put on the best product on the field, all they got to do was build a good farm system, and go from there. Some of the other teams should take notes from Minnesota, and follow them to a T. If money was really everything, the Yankees would of had a mega-dynasty in the 2000's, not just 2 world titles to bookend the decade. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on June 28, 2010, 10:08 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 MLB went on a downward trend after the advent of free agency - that was when owners went hog-wild and started shelling out millions of dollars for players, regardless of their past performance. Now owners are crying poor, fewer people are coming to games because it's too expensive...guess what? Nobody held a gun to the owners' heads and told them "You must pay Joe Blow that much money or else". If owners ran their business(es) the way they run their teams, they'd be out of business so fast it would make their heads spin. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on June 28, 2010, 9:50 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Have to disagree. Sure, the Yankees have an advantage of having millions of bucks to bank on, but the Pirates, and a few other teams need to suck it up, build strong minor league systems, and keep on putting out a good product, while not screaming "BROKE!!!" Besides, whats to say that with a Salary Cap, that would kill off any dynasties. The NFL has one, and the Patriots had their dynasty. The NBA has had one for 25 years, hasnt prevented the Bulls, Lakers, or Spurs from being dynastic. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 3, 2009, 5:28 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 Until baseball finally gets a salary cap the game will keep being dominated by teams like the Yankees while smaller teams like the Pirates and Marlins are forced to cobble together a team with what's left over and forever serve as a farm club for bigger teams. -- Submitted By: (TheAdamantiumElbow) on September 28, 2009, 12:29 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
