    On baseball

    Ownership’s fault? Not buying it

    BALTIMORE — John Henry and Tom Werner have been clobbered by fans and media all season, but when you are in Baltimore, or Pittsburgh, or Kansas City, you gain some perspective.

    How would you like to follow a team that hasn’t finished at least .500 in 20 years (the Pirates) or 15 years (the Orioles)? Or how would you like to follow baseball in Miami, where the team is ripped apart and rebuilt so often, or in Oakland, where players come and go like a clearinghouse and the team can’t even find a suitable place to play?
