Baseball has faced worse times than this (1919 Black Sox, 1950 attendance woes, 1980s drug/labour issues, 1994 lost playoffs) and it just keeps rolling along. Every time someone pronounces "baseball is dead!", I just laugh a little bit to myself and keep on reading. Wow you were alive in 1919? Medicine sure has come along way. Agreed everysport has there ebb and flow but the fact of the matter is this isnt 1919 or 1950 or 1980. Im not saying that its the end tomorrow but I do honestly feel baseball is in dire straits. I applaud baseball for opening the facility in south central and recognizing that in fact the mass majority of americans are increasingly losing the opportunity and interest in a game they cant realate to. Over half the population lives in major markets(500k plus) and with the urbanization of America as well the Internet,Ipods,Video Games,Satelite TV,CellPhones,and on demand EVERYTHING its not a matter of scandals and drugs. the question is do we care? In a country where ADD and ADHD is so rampant and EVERYTHING is NOW theres definately some work to be done. Babyboomers and there offspring are definately driving baseball. Football and Basketball is 10 times the action in half the time at half the price. I still dont understand how i can pay 30 for a NFL ticket 10 for NBA but i cant find a Rangers ticket under 45 for gods sake 82 home games! cut a brutha some slack! I would like to get a drink if im gonna be in the stands for 4 damn hours!

I agree the burden of proof is always on the prosecution... unless in a civil matter where you just have to be found be liable. Yes not guilty in one..however in the other i believe the guilty plea would come swift and decisive.its not the before picture im talking about. its the after. i could ramble about stats,injuries,habits, behavior,symptoms, and the 50 percent body mass they pick up OBVIOSLY doin push-ups, but id just be telling you stuff you already know...

Exactly go old school all you want to. Tell you what. We'll start a list of known steroid users IN THE PAST DECADE from football and baseball and see wich one is longest. I bet you can guess the answer. I wonder how many Boone,Bonds,McGwire,Palmerio(sp) stories we'll come up with.

Football season is only 7 months away. Always a good sanctuary from things like steroids and labor issues Your Steroids shot is baseless. Sure a FEW MAY be in the NFL.However baseball had a epidemic that went from top of the order down. Its just like baseball fans to point fingers cause they know there so called hereoes really arent hereoes but juiced up freaks that won by any means necessary. even at the expense of there fans.

Thats exactly my point. The pure love of the game that once was will IMO never come back. Of course people will come for milestones,recaords, etc. but trust me bein from the so called MTV Generation the interest in baseball is nearly nill. When all you old foggies shrivle up and IPODS are in antique stores and PS3 and XBOX evolve even more hitting a ball with a stick really wont appeal to us new old timers. You also cant put your faith in statistics. If you take out attendance for the Yankees,Red Sox,Dodgers,Angels and about 2 or 3 more those numbers dont look so hot. The average age of baseball fans in attendance ranges from 33 to 36 hardly the next generation while nfl is 18 to 28. During the White Sox Astros World Series the Avg age of viewers was a whopping 57!! Not to mention Football is preferred to baseball almost 3-1 among women. Baseballs dyin you just dont know it yet.

Sad to say americas passion is no longer baseball. I used to enjoy taking trips to Camden Yards and catchin the O's game. I dont know if baseball will EVER recover. With strikes,steroids, and "suburbination" of the game whole entire generations are soured by the actions of a few. Ah well. Football season is only 7 months away. Ive already started stockpiling beer in case the Canadians decide to build nuclear weapons and the price of molsen ice soars.

The End of an Era(?)

the reason why is the nba has evolved into a more sleek fast paced league. todays game centers are expected to do more then "take up space in the lane". IMHO the age of the big centers is over and maybe the center position all together. Dont be suprised if Yao Ming is the last of the giants.
