Kicking and screaming

George Steinbrenner's protestation to Hal Bodley of USA Today with respect to the World Baseball Classic remind me of the arrogance of baseball. It represents archaic thinking driven by power bases unwilling to even consider change to protect status quo. One example of course is the Players Union which failed to take action earlier to actually act in the best interest of its constituency. Only before stars and leaders were dragged before a bunch of preening congressmen did something happen on steroids. But that's another post or several posts. But both examples represent how any change comes in baseball after significant kicking and screaming.
