Has Peter Gammons turned into Andy Rooney? The cranky ol' sumbitch lists 25 things to change about baseball, and it's pretty clear that he's got about 20 too many. Do they pay him by the word? How else to explain the fact that #1 is "Teams that allow public relations to dictate personnel and organizational decisions" and #24 is "we need stricter consequences for an intentional walk?" In other words, "listening to the fans is stupid, except when they want to see someone pitch to Barry Bonds."
