The Major League Baseball Players have set a Strike date for August 30th.

What do you think of that? I think it's sad. And a mistake. A big mistake. If they go on Strike, the Owners should bring up Minor League Baseball players. Alot of them will walk accross the picket lines to play in the Major Leagues. Which will make the Major Leaguers come back ASAP!

Egalite!

3 cheers for no more baseball on tv



Maybe now instead of showing the crappy bluejays on 15 different channels they'll show some tennis

Darn, no more seeingthe overpaid players, or revenue seeking bloodyhounds fight like children in a sandbox over the red shovel.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Good points, Becca! But do you feel the same way about Tennis players that you do about Baseball players?

There aren't too many tennis players that make the kind of money the baseball players make! Total on the mens and womens tur are maybe 7 or 8 that make decent money!

Seven or eight tennis players, Barrie? LOL! Try 70 or 80! Or don't you consider clearing 500k plus a good year?

But 500k for a ball player is nothing! That's minimum wage im MLB! I'm speaking og players that makesay, a million or more a year! And, that is still noting in MLB terms!

Why would I feel the same way about tennis players?

last time I checked they weren't stupid enough to go on strike everytime their jock strap isn't fitting right.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.
