Re: “The Durham Bulls Are Champions. But Does It Matter?

Love this essay for its philosophical musing about the meaning of winning championships in front of empty stadiums and without media hype. Praise for excellence, for excellence's sake.

Re: “The Durham Bulls Are Champions. But Does It Matter?

I guess using the logic of this article. the NCAA championships won by Duke or UNC or Kentucky or any other team don't really matter because a large number of players involved are one and done. The same could be said for the NFL where rosters change dramatically from year to year due to free agency and injury. I would say a minor league baseball championship where over 100 games are played with a solid core of players is more meaningful than an NCAA championship played by players who don't even play 40 games for their team.

On the other hand, who cares? It's a game.
