"MOST POWERFUL PEOPLE IN SPORTS," John Rawlings, Sporting News on XM
John says an individual blogger can be his own
media empire. The guys in congress meant a lot
this year to baseball vs. how steroids is handled.
But, baseball has always been big business, back to
Charlie Comiskey, who encouraged gamblers to
get involved. Big names to watch in baseball this
year: Lou Piniella, Stuart Sternberg, Theo Epstein.
Reminds that Baseball is passed on from one person
to another. Can't just rely on tv coverage today.
