Playing hardball over baseball’s antitrust exemption

San Jose’s lawsuit against the league for blocking its bid to lure the Oakland A’s raises a big question: Why should baseball have a blessing no other sport has?

The great thing about baseball is that it’s a mass of imponderables. How can Josh Hamilton be paid $ 17 million this year and hit .223? Why is a team with a $ 216-million payroll sitting dead last in its division? (I’m looking at you, Dodgers.)
