I see that you commented on Larry Dolan's anti-Yankee, anti-George remarks.
Seems to me that whenever someone talks about the inequities in baseball, it inevitably turns into Yankee-bashing. Well, if the Yankees are the big problem, the outliers who skew the whole system, maybe MLB should contract the Yankees. End of problem.
This won't happen of course because anyone with at least half a brain (this obviously excludes Bud) knows 1) that it helps all teams when there is a successful franchise in the nation's largest media market and 2) that the big, bad New Yorkers are a huge draw wherever they go.
Funny thing is, the Mets are in the same market at the Yankees. They supposedly have all the same advantages, yet no one views them as a threat. Could it be that the Yankees are not just lucky, but instead are very, very good at what they do? Do we really want the Yanks to be the Cubs, a team with more money than God and no clue how to win? Maybe it's time we stopped letting the rest of the country's knee-jerk, small-minded, anti-New York, anti-Yankee bias dictate MLB policy.
And speaking of bias, you do suppose Dolan's remarks had anything to do with the fact that his family's business, Cablevision, is locked in a bitter war with George's YES network. Nah. Couldn't be.
No, as they said when Bud Selig's undisclosed personal loan from Carl Pohlad became public, these men are of the highest moral character.
