BSPN loves to routinely proclaim, at least on radio, that MLB is doomed. They fail to change. They arent keeping up with the changing times. Games are too long. Its too hung up on tradition and staying the same. Terrible marketing of the game. Not enough young people playing or watching. Baseball and the owners are archaic and arrogant and the fall is coming. MLB tells us revenues are higher than ever and attendance is better than ever. The game is in better shape than ever. I for one have never thot Dud Selig was anything other than a worthless pile, and what he says means nothing. So there are two differing perspectives and they are at opposite ends of the spectrum. I have been watching and following baseball for over 40 years. The games arent too long for me. IMO, the tradition is a HUGE part of the game. Stats, records, comparing players form different eras and how they compare to the greats of the game is all part of it. Its what baseball is. Its what makes the game so great and timeless in a sense. Its just a great game to all who understand and follow it with some passion. So, in many ways something so great doesnt need dramatic change. Coke is just fine and has been for years. How did New Coke work out? In order to change for the better there has to be a need for change and a BETTER change available. Now, I understand that my perspective is part of the problem for the BSPN progressives. Im an old white guy. Its the old guys (white) who own and run MLB like a club that is the issue. Ive come to think that the problem isnt MLB, but the perspective of those who says its doomed. The real problem they have comes out when they repeatedly make statements about MLB not being diverse enough. Or resistant to change. Or an old white guys club. The problem isnt baseball. The problem is baseball will not make all the changes that THEY want to make. And whats really ironic, is they dont really know what changes are needed, they just know it needs to change. Every sport and every organization always needs to be self evaluating or decline or death follows. So its not that baseball shouldnt always be doing that. But is baseball really doomed as the BSPNer's routinely claim? What think you?
