After last night's game, and with a mere two weeks until Spring Training 2013, a word from the legendary Vin Scully....
"Baseball is to football as blackjack is to bridge. One is the quick jolt; the other the deliberate, slow-paced game of skill. But never was a sport more ideally suited to television than baseball. It's all there in front of you. It's theatre, really. The star is in the spotlight on the mound, the supporting cast fanned out around him, the mathmatical precision of the game moving with the kind of inevitability of Greek tragedy. With the Greek chorus in the bleachers!"
