The Congressional Baseball Committee

CBS' Larry Dobrow thinks that, since Congress is determined to stick its nose into baseball's business, it may as well investigate some things that fans would like it to investigate, such as the needless complexity of the infield fly rule, the DH, and the continued existence of the Florida Marlins:

Potential testimony: In true ogre-owner fashion, the Loria family will skip the proceedings due to a "previous commitment." But each of the 10,121 (wink, wink!) fans who attended the September 12 game in Florida between the Marlins and Nationals will be called upon to describe, in great detail, the profound loneliness and/or boredom that prompted them to show up. Local officials will then set about finding them girlfriends.
