I probably should have done this a couple of years ago but hey better late then never.
Dear Mr. Selig and MLB,
What in the name of God were you thinking by introducing Inter-league play? It has to be the stupidest thing to come out of your whole tenure as Commissioner. And guess what, everyone that I have spoken with agrees with me. So whoever you consulted must have been one hell of a ‘yes’ man.
Listen, before you initiated Inter-league play, the World Series had meaning. The AL and the NL played each other. Part of the excitement of the Wold Series was to watch how batters and pitchers would react playing against people that they never played before. To be a world Championship team meant something. Now It has become pretty blase.
When I was growing up there was the NFL and the AFL and the Superbowl meant something more than what commercials were being shown and who was going to perform during halftime. Actually the game now really sucks and many people that I know don’t even watch the game.
The NBA was separate from the ABA. In fact the ABA was barely considered a Professional League. Now Bingo. They mean nothing.
And lets not even go into the NHL and the Stanley Cup. What a farce that is. It seems like almost any team can get into the playoffs.
Back to Baseball, the Great American Pastime. The fans don’t like it and all your’e going to do is siphon away fans from the sport.
I could go into the Wild Card but I will leave that for another day.
Thanks for listening. Yeah right.
