Tavish wrote: They will dangle the anti-trust expemtion in front of the owners
Don't underestimate the importance of what Tavish said there. When someone like McCain speaks the way he just did, he's doing it to force the owners and players to get their "stuff" together -- fast. The trump card is the Anti-Trust Exemption which (obviously) is enabling MLB to flourish. Baseball knows if the political winds blow hard enough to get a majority of Congress to step in line with McCain, the Anti-Trust exemption could be in danger.
And frankly, the BALCO story could be just the thing to get those winds to blow.
Again, I tip my hat to McCain for speaking up.
And I agree with the poster who said above that the good Senator will never get elected president because of his outspoken nature.... but I'd sure as hell vote for him.
