Whatever the case, I agree with GS that if you accuse just MLB for the ills of professional sports, then you might as well cancel cable/satellite subscription to all sports at virtually all levels.

The Vince Lombardi ethos has thoroughly permeatead in all aspects of American life and poisened it into ultra-competitive society where players, coaches, owners and whoever involved in anything, be they sports or otherwise, would take any means to win.
Well, I guess you know what they say about opinions . . .

however, I do not separate everything into black and white, right or wrong - I just like to wade in the 'gray' territory... or was that 'grey'...

I like 'greye', every once in a while.

With one day to go, only one of the seven contenders has been eliminated and two have secured playoff berths. That leaves four teams in contention for the two remaining spots. According to cmitch, tomorrow's outcome was decided before the season began, but I'll feign interest anyways, since I was left out of the loop.
