IMHO, It is time for a presidential commission on baseball.

by Dave Krehbiel on 29 July 2017

Baseball is our national pastime. Unlike many other professional sports, professional baseball is a monopoly under the protection and direction and control of the US government.

If I were Pres. Trump, I would establish a White House committee to review baseball. And since it is such an important topic, I would reassign every one of Pres. Obama’s last-minute appointments to that committee.

    What is the pressing need, right now, to justify something like that?

    And (unless you really want that committee to suck) I wouldn’t recommend packing it with Obama flunkeys.

    I think Dave’s just looking for a way to divert the energies of the Obama appointees. 🙂 I wouldn’t worry too much about it being packed with them because it could just be a non-binding blue ribbon commission.

    Right. Take those last-minute appointees and move them to an office in Iowa. Get them out of the White House.

    IMHO, one pressing need, right now, is to stop leaks. I think this would help.

    Moving Obama appointees to a “safe place” is probably a good idea. But in order to set up a new commission to investigate baseball, it seems there should be some justification. Some scandal, or some problem.

    @Greg: I would personally prefer they work on something inconsequential. And I think other White House employees will get the message. If you leak, or criticize publicly, or are disloyal, you will be transferred to Kalamazoo, and removed from any discussions or information about anything important or relevant.

    Kalamazoo is nice. Better than DC. My dad had an uncle with a house on a lake nearby in Portage. It was my favorite vacation spot. Now, being sent to a sh*thole like Maryland, that would suck.
