n.— «While you were still rooting for your team for no reason more profound than it was your team, they changed the rules on you. The Dodgers and Giants split for the Coast, sharpies like George Steinbrenner bought into the game, the players earned free agency, the World Series became a seven-night affair because that’s what was best for television sponsors. Baseball became moneyball, and it made perfect sense for fans to get cut into the game.» —“Pools reflect our lost innocence” by Michael Farber Gazette (Montreal, Can.) Apr. 3, 1993.
