Call it our open letter to Selig and Fehr...
As we come to the end of 2006, MLB is flourishing on many levels, but as with everything on this earth... nothing's perfect. To that end, I have contacted a number of notable people that work in and around MLB and asked them one question...
What's right and wrong with MLB?
Next week I'll be publishing thoughts from people like Rob Neyer of ESPN, Tim Lemke, who is the sports business reporter from the Washington Times, legendary front office icon Buzzie Bavasi, Alex Belth and Jon Weisman of SI.com, Salon magazine's King Kaufmann, Gary Gillette, Jerry Crasnick and Jonah Keri of ESPN, Baseball Prospectus' Nate Silver and Joe Sheehan, Will Carroll of Baseball Prospectus and ESPN, Tal Smith the President of Baseball Operations for the Houston Astros, Boston Herald reporter Michael Silverman, the Director of the Warsaw Sports Marketing Center Paul Swangard,former Dodger GM Fred Claire, as well as noted sports economists Andrew Zimbalist, Rodney Fort and Roger Noll, just to name a handful of those that have already committed to adding their comments.
Also, one posting from our forums will be selected to be in the article along with the rest of these notable individuals. If you are interested in possibly being selected alongside these individuals, make sure and register and look for details in the Biz of Baseball Forums.
