I was raised on baseball and as a kid enjoyed those neighborhood games of it. Since then though I have fallen away from baseball. I just am not interested in organized baseball with all its rules and rituals. Really I find it boring and just not related to my lived experience. Also I really don’t know all that much about the details of baseball. I barely understand what a sacrifice is and a RBI is arcane to me.
Nevertheless I have some suggestions for when they elect a new Commissioner of Baseball. So I would like to suggest new rules for baseball to bring it up-to-date and more inline with modern times and that of course we need female players in the major leagues.
Now isn’t that pretty much how so many articles start out right now in relation to an election of a new pope? People who really don’t care about the Church or are opposed to it are freely giving advice to make it better. Equal parts hubris and ignorance seem to be a prescription for such writers commenting on the Church.
That these writers are ignorant of the fact that there very prescription has already been adopted by other churches such as Anglicanism and the results of that prescription have had many side effects including shrinking attendance. They are also not even aware that the bodies that adopted their remedy have people moving to the Church they believe so deficient. Still I can hardly blame them for their ignorance of this since even those not unaware of this say exactly the same thing.
