Baseball is going great and if ticket prices are frozen or go down, so much the better.

The team owners have the ability to say “no” and have chosen to say “yes” although there seems to be some progress in baseball this year.

If your employer offered to double or triple your salary, would you say no?

In Formula 1 there have been a few drivers who have taken pay cuts recently. I udnerstand Jensen Button, who won the first race of the season on Sunday, was one of them and reports in Spain say former world champions Fernando Alonso took a 6 million suros pay cut recently.
I haven’t seen many examples in football, etc though.

People should be as outraged at these athletes as they are at the bankers. I know the ahtletes didn’t cause the problems, but they’re not helping by the continual escalation of salaries. I suppose the agents are equally to blame.

Maybe down to two strike hitting.

Fun and exciting new ventures like playing the “Game” daily at www.mlpogame.wordpress.com against the greatest minds behind the “Game”, can capitalize on centralized databases that will ultimately capture global revenues daily with or without a real baseball game being played.

Enjoy.
