Barry Bonds is on his way into the OJ Simpson Hall of Infamy, but was he really the problem, or just a symptom of a system that is addicted to television revenue and will do just about anything to get a fix?

MLB is sick, very sick, and it is jonesing big-time for a few real super-stars in that large pack of under-performing multi-millionaires.

It may be fun to rag on A-Rod, and maybe even shake your head at the fact that Scott Boras has the nerve to want to charge about $1.1 million per home run year, but nothing replaces quality on the field. The high-energy, dynamic game of baseball still exists, but you have to visit Pawtucket or Sacramento to see it played like that day-in and day-out.

MLB got hooked on big name, big dollar players like Bonds and A-Rod, and has turned a very large blind eye to what many do to maintain a super-star caliber of play. Can MLB do something about kicking its drug habit?

I wrote a piece on my blog over at the MAJOR BLOGS of Minor League News about how they could do just that.
