Rank Baseball's Ethical Transgressions

What's worse, bunting to break up a no-hitter or swinging too hard at a pitch once your team has a five run lead?

Well, if you've always wanted to chime in on such conundrums, then The Hardball Times has posted an online version of a Carleton College American Studies course that attempts to rank what's worse when players "cheat". Is betting money on your team to win really worse than a batter erasing the back of the batters box so he can sit in the catcher's lap?

I'm really interested to see how this turns out. Read more about it and take part in the online project. What I would LOVE to see is if there was some demographic information. Like, these are how Padres fans rank the 133 transgressions and how Yankees fans rank them. It would probably go a long way to explaining why fans always think that other teams have the asshole fans.
