Rumors of Baseball’s Death Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Well, as of this afternoon, it looks like baseball will be coming to D.C. after all.

It’s funny, to read the story in the Post, you’d think that everything was all hunky-dory, everyone was all smiles, and everybody just negotiated a “compromise.”

It doesn’t take a genius to read between the lines to see that the “compromise” consisted of Linda Cropp completely backing down from her position. Oh, she’s making statements to the effect that she withdrew the amendment because she’s confident that private financing will be found.

Whatever. Before, you were mandating private financing, and now you’re not.

I guess you realized that nobody was buying your “I’m not killing baseball” story. And that Major League Baseball wasn’t about to return to the bargaining table just to please you.

Or maybe you just decided that you wanted to play ball after all.
