The utter venality of those who work in professional baseball never fails to amaze me. No, I’m not talking about the scores of players accused of corrupting the game for the big payday. Nor am I talking about owners, who continue to pay the cheats those obscene amounts of money. I’m not even talking about the commissioner, who availed himself of an opportunity to save the business from its own greed by turning a blind eye. No, you can find all the corruption you can stomach right here, on MLBlogs. On a day when MLB is getting handed its moral butt, MLBlogs launches a blog, The Mitchell Reporter. So what do they do with it? Why try to exploit the moment to pimp their moneymaker, Alyssa Milano, of course!
****, if they thought they could get away with it they’d have her posed pulling up her officially licensed MLB skirt to expose her well rounded rump with a “stick your needle here, big boy!” tattoo.
Think about it. On a day as serious as this, they simply could not resist the temptation to try to shake us down for another buck. They have no respect for the game—or much of anything else, for that matter. That, of course, is what caused this mess in the first place.
