I really started noticing this year, that by golly, I just like baseball alot more. In football, if a team has a lead in the 4th quarter, they just keep running the ball. And running the ball, and well... boring. In basketball, what happens if it's a close game? Foul, and then foul again.
Baseball has the most tension late in the game. The game HAS to be closed out, and a team can comeback no matter what the deficit.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
