Agreed. There are numerous situations in life where there are incentives to behave badly (tax deductions, corporate earnings reports, insider trading) that someone can profit immensely. It doesn't make it right to do so.
Ultimately, it is a shared responsibility because Selig was turning a blind eye, or at a minimum not pushing the MLBPA hard enough, while allowing McGwire and Sosa to bring the fans back to the stands after the lock-out. But at the end of the day, if you're an adult, and you made a choice, you live with it. Just like the rest of us.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
