O'Reilly: Warfare Breaks Out In Major League Baseball

Alex Rodriguez signed his $275 million contract with the Yankees in December 2007. The stock market peaked at the end of October 2007. Today, with social mood sinking, Rodriguez faces a suspension for more than 1 year (the MLB season is 162 games and his suspension is for 211 games).

Notice how far he has fallen, to the point where even the Yankees dislike him. Any popular figure in the public eye, from Warren Buffett to President Obama, faces the same challenges as social mood continues to sink. The margin for error is shrinking, the public is angry and they will turn quickly and suddenly on their soon to be former heroes and idols. Also, note O'Reilly's description of what's happening in baseball: warfare. Yet another sign of the social mood.
