    Scully's telling quote

    Post by Bobbyrosebowl on Fri Feb 28, 2014 6:23 pm

    In the book I read about Vin Scully he was asked if he had absolute power in MLB what would he do, and he said the one and only thing he would do would be to return to two EIGHT team leagues!

    Obviously, with the pure greed that has destroyed professional and college sports this would never happen. The idea that Scully said it indicates that he, too, thinks MLB is a pile of manure ruined by expansion and MONEY!!!!!!

    Owners want into this 30 team country club called MLB.  They know how to take care of their own - revenue sharing to insure the small clubs get their piece even if they are shitty and lose money. Everyone participates in the rich MLB broadcast contract.  Local and state govts kick in tax revenues to build stadiums.  Latest example is Atlanta where one of the suburban counties is going to raise $ 400 million for a new Braves ballpark.. These capitalist MLB owners are true Marxists when it suits their purposes.
