Why Pro Athletes are Different from the Rest of Us

Other than the money, the partying, the bling, the off-duty issues, the attention, etc.

I'm referring, of course, to the fact that some of them get to drink while performing their duties as baseball players.  Maybe it's the attire--Sox teams seem to have gotten the attention here.  It sounds worse than Mad Men.

I don't think an open bar is a prudent workplace policy.  But I especially don't think it's smart for people to imbibe at work when their job description includes hitting 95 mph fastballs being thrown within inches of their heads, or tracking down 3 inch spheres being hit hundreds of feet from their location.

And now MLB wants to take action:  "I'm shocked, shocked, to find drinking going on in this establishment..."
