NY Columnist: Could it be Contraction Time for Marlins, A's?

             Bill Madden of the New York Daily News speculates that baseball owners, weary of dumping revenue sharing money into two franchises that are in a perpetual struggle to secure new ballparks, might decide it's time to contract the Marlins and Oakland A's.

             Concludes Madden: "Like just about every other industry in this country right now, baseball is going to have to take stock of its situation and downsize. There are too many teams in baseball anyway and it makes no sense to continue operating them in places that can't or won't support them."
