I don't mean to pick on Dave F but he said something on a different thread that I have heard from many different sources - the 1994 baseball strike ruined/stained/diminished the game for them. In my observations the degree to which the strike affected one's opinion is proportionate to how big a baseball fan they are (or in some cases even were). I gather that year really really put a hurt on the hardcore fans.
Do you think the game has changed since the strike? Do you think the sport's reputation or popularity has suffered as a result? Who do you think were the 'Bad Guys' - the greedy owners or greedy players? Do you think any good came of the strike?
