it hasn't already? srs.
Baseball sucks. The same f**king teams in it every year because there is no hard cap. What's the point in rooting for the Pirates, A's, Brewers etc.?

Sure, they will make some runs, win some divisions, but will eventually face a team with an expensive super talented roster and will be outmatched. Its a shame, i used to be a huge baseball fan too.

Troy Smith= proof that winning the heisman won't guarantee NFL success or longevity
IMO he would be a better MLB or even a OLB.

He has/had crazy speed. He was in crazy great shape. He just wasn't as big as say, a JJ Watt or Aldon.

You have to be a freak in order to be a great DE.

Andre was a good 4-3 edge rusher ...I wish we could have kept him, he didnt fit into Nolan's grand scheme of things...but I wish we could have hung on to him and Julian Peterson

this is a problem. in an era where half of the country is under the poverty line they dont like hearing about ten players on a team getting paid hundreds of millions. america loves underdogs. Hard cap needs to be instituted, and some rules need to be changed to make it more exciting. the nfl is drama packed because there are so few games played every season. Baseball has the opposite of this going on with 180~ games? played a year. Did I mention that it's also boring as f**k? I like going to see the isotopes games locally (dodgers farm team) but hell going to a baseball game and watching it on TV are two totally different things. I could argue the merits of attending a game for three pages, however, the majority of fans are reached through the medium of television, and as long as baseball continues to be boring, the market will continue to shrink.

I don't care if you guys don't like baseball, but at least know what the hell you are talking about. There have been plenty of articles and data shown that baseball actually has more parity than NFL. That cap crap has no effect on making the playoffs or winning championships. They need to change it, but not for that reason.

I don't. The team might've been halfway decent and Nolan would've gotten fired a season or two later. Which means Singletary is around a season or two later. Which means we miss out on JIm Harbaugh and end up with- Chip Kelly lol.

That's how important it is that we sucked royally from 2005 to 2008.
