40-man Roster Rule A 24-karat Crock
THERE is a DH in one league, not the other. The Mets can finish 20 games better than a pathetic wild-card team over a full season and be rewarded just a single extra home contest for a perilous five-game Division Series. We can now assume Pluto is no longer a planet, but we cannot assume a double play, though players ground into roughly 3,800 of them annually.
There certainly is a disturbing blend of inequity and idiocy in baseball. Unfortunately, simple solutions are defied by some combination of complex politics, finances, labor relations or history. But one integrity problem that should be easily fixed is back in disturbing play again.
