I absolutely hate some of the story lines in Major League Baseball this season. Tell the fans something good, that really matters!
Screw the Yankees and their search for a replacement outfielder, screw Roger Clemens and his indecisiveness/bidding war, and screw Barry Bonds and his "chase for Ruth"!
How about focusing on some of the positives. Like franchises rising above expectations and playing their tails off: Reds, Tigers, Rockies. Or two men having mind-boggling starts to the season: Albert Pujols and Jim Thome.
Pujols: 40 g, 138 ab, 42 r, 44 h, 6 2b, 20 hr, 50 rbi, 34 bb, .319 ba, and 1.249 ops (holy fricken crap!)
Thome: 40 g, 140 ab, 38 r, 41 h, 5 2b, 17 hr, 41 rbi, 33 bb, .293 ba, and 1.125 ops
That's the stuff of legends my friends.
