Dude, you need this book to understand the real traditions in baseball (Perry gets his own chapter).

I'm not a really a baseball fan, but I would be bummed if the Cubs changed the name of Wrigley Field. I mean, if the McCaskeys were willing to rebuild Soldier Field without selling the name, I'm sure the Cubs should be able to work out something.

I'm still not sure how that makes baseball suck less and or makes me think I should be more in favor of drug use?

Was there cheating prior to roidrage? Yep. Does that make roidrage OK? Nope.

Are there bad traditions? Yep. Does that mean they should be kept along side good traditions? Nope.

Strawberry huh? Theres also the Ramon "The Rapist" Castro. And Brett "Spousal Abuse" Myers. But how about those Portland Jail-blazers? The Bengals? These teams have a hard time practicing because being so close to other criminals violates their parole.
It does seem like there is a significant DUI problem in baseball (and that goes back as far as I can remember...) which no one ever talks about, but seems (to me) to be far worse than steroids and HGH. Though again, other sports experience the same kinds of issues, and much worse (Pacman Jones, Michael Vick, et al - I'd look up more examples, but I don't think the corporate IT guys would be amused).

Could be a good thing - Cubs haven't had a big stick in the park since Sosa left.
