    It’s not just Selig. The brouhaha about Bryce Harper and Mike Trout maybe getting sprayed with champagne in the event of a celebration. Tim McCarver last night talking about how MLB really needs to crack down on these celebrations. I had a celebration worthy of SportsCenter in my apartment when Kozma hit that single. I love seeing players express raw emotion that way. Sports is FUN! At least when you win. Stuff happens sometimes. I don’t want my team walking gingerly in headgear after winning a game – I want them to be themselves. The purpose of MLB is not to preserve players for future contract negotiations, whatever the cost. The purpose is to entertain. Nobody ever dreams of pitching a seventh game in the World Series, striking out Babe Ruth or Mickey Mantle or Albert Pujols, and then calmly walking back to the dugout in a warmup jacket. Baseball is awesome and will be as long as people like Bud and Tim McCarver don’t get their way.
