    Nothing screams contraction more than the D'Rays
    Accept the lower level of Pro Player Stadium in the 4th inning.

    Not much class! Even if a statement like that were true (which it is not), you just don't say those types of things.
    And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!

    Baseball needs moribund franchises. It makes for cinderella's. Its part of the game.

    Dodgers and Browns, yes, but people forget that probably the most hapless franchise for most of big league history has been the Phillies. They had the Whiz Kid teams in the 50's (who never won) and they've been up-n-down since the late 70's. The rest of the time they've been putrid.

    That's what happens when your team is owned by an ex Police Chief and the city owns your crappy 1890's era park and you're locked in a 30 year lease.

    Once the Dow Chemical money showed up they hired some Rickey boys and got the whiz kids. For teh first half of the century they were the Browns of the NL, the poor team in a 2 team city.

    Yeah, they bought the Rickey farm method and turned their nose up at the essence of what created it... being smart in a changing world.

    Though the Philly press in the mid 60's fanned the flames mightly when that first black superstar showed up.
