New York Yankeees and Boston Red Sox
in playoffs again. How baseball reflects the real world
Greed and wealth pays in this country. These two baseball teams are always on top of the standings in the American League. Baseball really has an economic problem as the wealth between the haves and have nots continues to grow. How this sport can still be popular I can't figure out. It's always the Yankees in first place because they have the capital to weaken other teams as they strengthen their own year in and year out. Teams like the Baltimore Orioles
and the Pittsburgh Pirates
never have a chance. I am glad pro football is nothing like Major League Baseball.
They talk about the rivalry between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees
all of the time. Sports fans don't seem to mind that in baseball only a select few are guaranteed to always be good. How can there not be an intense rivalry between these two teams since they are the only ones that can afford all the big time free agents. They are good every year because they play so many teams that have little money and can never get good. This makes the sport very boring when you know every year who will win the division and be in the playoffs. I swear to God you can look at past years and every year the standings always seem to remain the same.
Now it's true the Yankees haven't won the Series for a while. baseball fans have been lucky that the ball hasn't bounced their way in the post season and allowed some other teams into the World series. The fact that they are always in contention while other teams never seem to be makes me sick. It is just like the wealthy in this country. The people with money can use that money to get their kids to be successful in the future. People with kids who are not super wealthy can't compete giving their children the same advantages. This is the basic flaw of the capitalism system in this country. Baseball bores me these days and I don't see the reason even to follow their season anymore
