Ten Things About MLB

I apologize if this has been posted/discussed elsewhere. I haven't seen it, so I thought I'd throw it here:

http://finance.yahoo.com/family-home/article/103734/10-Things-Major-League-Baseball-Won't-Tell-You

This is an interesting article that, while not necessarily speaking about things most of us don't already know or suspect, I still found myself lingering over with a bad taste in my mouth. It's these types of things - the rampant greed and carelessness with which MLB has operated almost from day one - that makes it difficult to simply "enjoy the game" as we all try to do. And when my wife starts in with all this stuff, even though she's a casual fan and just playing devil's advocate, there's not much I can say to back my being such a fan.

Anyway, I'd like to see what others think of these issues/points. It's slow around here, it's the off season (for us), and there's room for plenty of discussion.

Thanks all.
