When asked what he wanted, Traynor would say, "Pie, please."

I've now got 5/5 on all quizzes with the word BASEBALL in the title. If only there was a Baseball badge...
Controversial opinion incoming... Steroids were a "moral panic" that didn't effect the game all that much. Everyone was doing them (probably many still are), but we heap shame on the ones who happened to get caught. Meanwhile, home runs totals today are far higher than during the steroid era. The real problem with baseball isn't Bonds, or Clemens (or Pete Rose either for that matter), it's that the product has become unwatchable, boring, and increasingly irrelevant. There was a time when I could name the winner of the World Series every year. Now I don't even know or care who wins.
Lower the mound, mushify the ball by 5%, and we'll see a version of baseball the way it was meant to be played, not this boring battle of walks, strikeouts, and home runs. Bring in a salary cap too while we're at it.
