I agree. So far, scanning the responses, TRF is the only one saying he/she will boycott these games. There may not be a lot of upside other than 8-14 year old boys, but I don't see much downside either. Selig's job is to help increase the profitability of the game for the owners, while growing the game's image. I just don't see this hurting baseball's image on a permanent basis. As long as they keep ads off the uniforms (like the Japan games), this is not such a big deal to me.
How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
