Re: 2009 World Series
Warning!!! Rant to follow,
Let me say that I HATE THE YANKEES!!!! I like Jeter, Pettitte, I cannot believe a team is allowed to spend unlimited money every year to but all the star free agents, They should be a traveling attraction team like the Globetrotters, Can you see the NFL or NBA saying OK we're gonna let you spend double on your payroll than every other team spends, of course they're gonna be great every year, Yeah, Yeah I know if they have the money why can't they do as they wish? If baseball wants any parity at all, they need a salary cap, even things out, help the bottom feeders get better, Money can be blamed for a lot of teams inability to be competitive, It's ridiculous that every year the playoff teams are the top payroll teams, Make it 60-80 million per team, Screw these outrageous salaries, especially with the economy being in a recession, 18-20 mil a year?? to play a sport? OK thats another rant for another day. Remember when teams developed players in their farm system? Like the twins, They are the shining example of how to do it, If every team spent around the same, and used their farm system, the crappy teams would get better, and a better team draws more fans, more fans means more money brought in, more pride, players wouldn't hate to go to those teams anymore, everyone would benefit-so thats why it will never happen, Of course every team would have to have people who can spot and develop talent, But having a couple teams buy their team every couple of years is ruining the game, KC, WASH, Pitt, have no hope unless they happen to draft the next Ty Cobb from high School, but then he'll leave for more money first chance he can. Allright I'm done blabbering.
Phillies in 6 also, Lee needs to pitch on two days rest, why not? Didn't Cy Young and Walter Johnson, and those oldies pitch like 40 complete games a year, And they had no Tommy John surgery, or cortizone shots, he's got 4 months to recover
Even if the Vikings lose, I can still find happiness in Bears, and Packer losses.
