Re: “Selig forms committee on pace of game issues

So he is retiring because he is senile.

Was baseball ever a quick game, the duration has to do with number of pitchs, foul balls, strike outs, and add appeals, just what can the committee really come up with. Limit number of times a batter can step out of the box, start calling foul balls after a certain number strikes, have a clock on the pitchers?

Leave the game alone

Re: “'Out of nowhere': Twins add undrafted 24-year-old Academy of Art University baseball player

Little known fact: the Healdsburg Prune Packers started in San Francisco, where they were known as the SF Fudge Packers.

Re: “Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa deserve a big no in Hall of Fame vote

Whatever may be the case. Taking booster for increased performance in sports is not at all advisable and the players had to meet the such consequences at the risk of breaking careers.

Re: “A's finalize 10-year deal to remain at Coliseum

I'm glad that Major League Baseball granted the A's the right to leave Oakland immediately in case the Coliseum chose to renege on a lease deal that had taken 14 months to negotiate. MLB's move effectively foiled Oakland City Council's backhanded plan to interfere with the final vote and scuttle the deal at the last minute. That's just not done; it's not how negotiation works.

That said, it is a shame that commercial sports teams, with their huge revenues, should enjoy rent reductions (as in the case of the Coliseum deal), free rent (in other cities) and outright gifts of public funds to construct stadiums (definitely part of the Coliseum's history).

It is also a shame that commercial sports teams contribute none of their sizable revenues to offsetting the subsidiary public costs that they create: extra police and traffic control hours, spikes in paramedic calls, extra public transit service, etc., etc.

Let this Coliseum deal be a lesson: when commercial sports facilities are economically viable, teams will build them. When they're not viable, the public shouldn't step in. If the public does step in, it should receive a normal, positive return on its investment, not a negative return.

Yikes, didn't the editor catch that headline? So they are looking for a drug deal, eh? Hmmmm ... one could take that in many ways.
