Juice in Baseball

June 1, 2006

Too bad that major leage baseball is not run by Canadians. MLB obviously deosn’t know that, although far worse, many of the queasy feelings we had when the first tower fell on 9-11 were reminiscent of feelings when we got the news that Ben Johnson would be giving back our gold medal.

Indeed the continuing saga gives rise to my first pangs of sympathy for Pete Rose. Even youngsters, when you attempt to explain that the only real difference is that for Pete there were rules already in place, scowl at the lack of wisdom or foresight of the rulemakers. Hopefully the Commish. and the owners have lots of shares in the company that makes astericks.
