    Players Set Strike Date, August 30th

    Now, the question is, does anybody care?

    On this one, I'm willing to lay on the owners. They almost had a deal a year ago, and Bud torpedoed it on purpose. The owners have done it to themselves, so fuck em. I hope a bunch go bankrupt and get nailed for cooking books. The players aren't innocent, so fuck them too.

    I have a 5 year old and I'd like him to be into baseball, so I'm not real sure if I'll stay away, but we'll see.

    if they do go on strike, and before september 11th, then to hell with all of them. baseball is supposed to be america's past time

    there's no reason they can't play out the year and strike at the beginning of next season

    I think I speak for most if not all fans when I say that Bud Selig needs to resign or be ousted as MLB Commissioner. He's simply damaged the game, and it's a real shame.

    I'm not putting all the blame on Bud, but he's been a major catalyst for a lot of the major problems with baseball. The players need to be straightened out, too...and that means SALARY CAP.

    Speaking of the salary cap, bring on the NFL!

    Screw baseball. I've been watching baseball ever since I was a kid, and enjoyed following Bonds' record-breaking season last year but the latest All-Star Game and all this talk about another strike has made me fed up. [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]

    Yes, bring on the NFL, the perfect league setup.

    Now, on to Baseball, the sport that barely recoverd from the strike of 94. Hey, it took a miracle (McGwire and Sosa in 98) to get people semi interested again. But some teams haven't recovered....think of baseball in the 80's and early 90's...it was relatively healthy. Most teams were generating eough revenue to NOT be mathamatically eliminated from the penant race in May. After the strike it was a whole different story and the small markets at best didn't stand a chance and at worst are in danger of losing their franchise. Now ya gotta wonder if MLB can recover from another strike and the inevitable loss of fans. It seems like this will only exaggerate the current problems and it will, once again, take a miracle for baseball to recover.

Then of course in the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex supplicants they chose a new form for him, that of a Sloar. Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Sloar that day I can tell you.

    I read that if the strike happens and the season is wiped out, A Rod will lose 3 1/2 million dollars.

    Now, don't get me wrong. I don't feel sorry for him one bit nor do I give a shit.

    The last game that I remember watching was back in 1993 when Joe Carter hit that home run that won the Blue Jays the world series! So I could care less if they strike again.

    If they strike, I'll be pissed. I'm a huge fan of baseball and the Pirates, and if they strike again, baseball will have a hard time getting their fans back, especially in small markets like Pittsburgh, where they just built a new stadium. Damn players and owners. I wish they'd be locked into a room, naked, with a bunch of gay, horny prison inmates, and not let out until they make an agreement. I think that would get the job done.

    If they leave, don't come back!!

    Baseball is existing on nostalgia value alone anyhow...There's no way that if baseball were introduced NOW as a spectator sport that it would survive...Heck, I can NAP at home for free!!!
