I have about a half-dozen podcasts on my iPhone, including ESPN’s Baseball Today, Gleeman’s Twins-based podcast, and the Baseball Prospectus Up and In podcast of Kevin Goldstein and Jason Parks. In Episode 100 of the latter, which is linked above, Goldstein and Parks answer an E-mail from a listener (it’s the last one in the E-mail segment) in which this question was asked:
Wind back the calendar to 1975. If you could have told MLB then one thing about the game, what would it be?
Jason Parks’s response was “Don’t pass on Mike Trout in the 2009 draft”. Kevin Goldstein’s response was “There are some bad drugs coming along, and you need to stay on top of the issue when it comes up.”
Being the type of person that I am, I thought this might trigger a lively discussion on BTF. So let me pose the question here:
What one thing would YOU have told MLB in 1975 about the way the game would be in 2012?
