Don't Hate the Player, Hate the Game

As I first wrote in May, this is how the game is played.

The Chicago Cubs wanted a new spring training facility. Since nothing is wrong with their current stadium in Arizona, they entertained bids from Florida developers in Naples. Worried about losing its economic engine, the City of Mesa (Ariz.) agreed to spend a robust $80 million for a new complex.

Sorry Naples, you got played worse than a barfly in the show Jersey Shore. Sorry Gov. Crist, your comments today about getting the Cubs (and planned trip to Naples tomorrow) are way too little, way too late. And sorry Cubs fans, the Ritz-Carlton in Naples will miss you.

But at least you all aren't alone...Remember how the Red Sox played Sarasota in 2008?

Don’t hate the players, hate the game.
