Taking Spring Fever a Little too Far

I'm all for loving baseball and using it as a metaphor for life, but David Brooks' rambling op-ed in today's times, Whose Team Am I On?, about the dilemma of switching his loyalty from the Mets to the Nationals, is taking it a little too far. Particularly notable is the fact he doesn't mention steroids when he discusses his loyalty to the sport and to his favorite team. The point that loyalty to a team persists despite the behavior of individual players would have pertinent.

Update: Gawker agrees! Memo to David Brooks...
