Sugar We're Goin' Down

They got Manny. 50 games. PEDs. I don't believe any of them at this point. Time for an ollie-ollie-oxen-free moment from the league - admit it now with full immunity, or risk permanent ban from the game. Overkill? Yes, absolutely. Necessary? Sadly, probably. The game's a laughingstock in the midst of a once-in-a-generation economic turmoil. They'll never lose people like Team MLC, but the league runs the risk of losing everyone at the margins, and that's a revenue source that'll be very difficult to recapture in the short term.

There's a rational, sober post on this topic to come, with a discussion of the incentives driving risk-taking behavior, incentives that we as fans create. This ain't it. To hell with all of them.

Fall Out Boy might be the only thing worse than baseball.
