The implosion of baseball

Well, Congress has finally dropped the ball on Major League Baseball, demanding that some of the game's most high-profile stars and personalities (including Head Horse's-Ass Donald Fehr) appear before a Committee of Congress investigating steroid use in major sports in America.

MLB is fighting the subpoenas, attempting to say that Congress has no jurisdiction over the issue. Here's my question: Does baseball want to further harm its image in the eyes of the American public? Is it the desire both of MLB and the union make baseball look like the Great National Sporting Joke as opposed to the National Pastime? Apparently this is the goal of Mr. Selig and his attorneys in New York. If their goal was to rehabilitate the greatness of the national sport, they would be co-operating with Congress, no questions asked.

Maybe MLB is hell-bent on losing their beloved anti-trust exemption. I'm sure that there are more than a few Congressmen who would enjoy taking that toy away from MLB.
