Slow week at The Theorem largely because Nils is lazy and I am not particularly interested in the latest steroid psuedo-drama. But I couldn't pass this piece by Carl Steward entitled "Next generation must restore baseball's purity."
[Purity should definitely be in ironic air quotes, right?]
If the sanctity of Major League Baseball is to be restored, it'll be the next generation of players, not the ever-growing cast of tarnished stars, that does it.
It's a ray of hope in a sad, sordid time for the game.
[Really? If *now* is a sad, sordid time for the game, what would we call the ENTIRE period before 1947?]
