Meh, you're not missing anything.
Stonewall Jackson isn't accidently shot and killed...
Josh Beckett would have had something to say about that. 2003 Marlins were not the pushovers that the 2004 Cardinals were.
So it is marketing and not the game itself and its history which helps the game retain its status?
I'm seriously hoping that is a sarcastic line. I can't imagine anyone thinking the 105 win Cardinals are a pushover relative to 91-71 Marlins.
When Selig took over as commissioner baseball was seriously being challenged by the NBA as the second most popular sport in america, since then mlb has caught up the the NFL and is co-champion for most popular sport in the U.S. Without Selig's vision, traditionalist might be happy, but the game would be teetering on financial collapse.
-Jeter never makes it over to make the "flip", Giambi out at home anyway due to it being totally unnecessary.
-Nyjer Morgan is currently active in the NHL.
I'd love to see the actual evidence that the NBA was seriously challenging MLB.
Joe Mauer plays professional football.
Nebraska kicks the extra point.
What if Lonnie Smith remembers base-running 101?
- Carl Crawford doesn't pull everything on the ground to the first baseman.
Or in game 5 Tony Clark's ball short hops the wall in right (instead of a ground rule double) and Jeter running from first base scores and the Yanks take the lead. (I can't remember if it is the ninth or extra innings)
