    No Worries Until They Offshore Spring Training - By Bill Blocher, The Ledger, FL
    If offshoring is good for automakers, TV makers, computer manufacturers, clothing makers, socks makers, hat makers, appliance companies, toy companies, call centers, and a host of other businesses that used to manufacture their products in the United States, why shouldn't it be good for baseball?

    Baseball may even be able to extend its fan base offshore and, if a team is not doing well in the United States, just ship the regular season there, too.

    After all, the American fans can always watch on a TV made in China, while sitting on a sofa made in India, sipping a drink from a glass made in Korea.

    Globalization is great, isn't it?
