Boz: Tanking By MLB Teams Isn’t A Strategy, It’s Fan Abuse

Snap out of it. Don’t listen. It’s dumb enough to tear down a roster that is already rotten or old or both. But it’s idiotic to rip up a team that has a chance to make the playoffs, even as a wild card, especially in the first era in MLB history when six teams already are trying to race to the bottom. With more to come? What is this, the shameless NBA where tanking’s been the dirty big lie for years?
