SBJ/June 18 - 24, 2001/Opinion

Baseball counterbalance

In his SportsBusiness Journal column of June 4-10 ["Two pawns in MLB's theater of the absurd"], Marvin Miller suggests that I am doing the baseball owners' bidding in the upcoming collective-bargaining negotiations. If this is so, the owners have a very peculiar way of showing their gratitude.

SBJ readers do not need another column from me on competitive balance in baseball. I do, however, want to note two things. First, I don't think it is taking sides to observe that there is a balance problem in baseball which is assuming new dimensions. Second, Marvin has taken some of my arguments out of context and invented others.

That said, Marvin, I still love you.
