If the players don’t care doesn’t that bring it down a little bit? Back in the old days you could probably get interviews from willie or whoever about how they were going to give the reds or Phillies the business nowadays I’m sure most players are more PC about that type of thing.

I feel like there's no edge to the players anymore. It's like the "AAU" mentality. These guys all grow up friends, they want to play with their friends like it's a beer league. There's no "sports hatred" anymore. No wanting to go out and kick the shit out of the other team.

That's a good one- and it really irks me when I see Miguel Cabrera jawing with infielders when he's on base!  I get it that they all have inside jokes, but the competitor in me wants to see a little more edge.   And don't even get me started on my anger when Prince Fielder was on the Tigers!!!  The Tigers would be losing in the 9th inning, he'd hit a meaningless single, and then swap stories with the other 1st baseman!!  And during the playoffs no less!!  Just my griping!!
