And the taxpayers vote on funding these stadiums so they have no one to blame but themselves.

Oswalt at $70m for 5 yrs is a great deal imo.
I disagree. If the system's broken, why is the game so competitive?

I think there are two things that can be done to bring baseball back to the people. One would require some sort of "reverse collusion" where owners agree to spend less on players and in turn, charge less for tickets beer and food. The other is to make players contracts less guranteed money, and more incentive based moneies. "You want your money, get off your arse and earn it Kerry Wood!" Call me a dreamer.....
