... go to the Braves of Atlanta.
The Las Vegas Raiders have nothing on them. (For now, anyway. In a few years, the Raiders will truly become the sport world's all-time welfare shyster.)
The Braves will bank more than $350 million from taxpayers in Georgia and Florida, two bastions of "fiscal conservatism." (Not to mention Red State Nevada, owned and operated by the Hon. Sheldon Adelson.)
Next time we have the urge to complain about anybody's contract - even Ellsbury's - let's remember the disgraceful avalanches of public money regularly banked by poor-mouthing owners... billionaires, who pretend to be millionaires, so that we'll feel sorry for them. Will we ever wise-up, or will it be carved into the Baby Boomers' gravestone that whenever the sports owners rattled a cup, the politicians of both stripes came running to write public checks?
If the revolution ever comes, may the first thing torn down be the goalposts. (Hat tip to Tom, anger is mine.)
