Garner on proper baseball...
« on: June 30, 2006, 03:52:11 pm »
"I don't think there's a rivalry there. You don't play them enough. It's hard for new rivalries to erupt because you've legislated the fighting out, the beanballs out," Garner said. "You can't have a genuine hate for people if you can't knock somebody down, really do some damage that way. It's going to be extremely difficult to create a genuine rivalry today.

"Plus, individuals look at other individual players differently today," Garner continued. "You don't have that sense of team pride to the extent that you used to -- 'Nobody going to beat me. By golly I'm going to tear somebody's head off if you do.' You just don't have that anymore."

The Link

While he is talking about the Rangers / Astros series, I think there's lots-o-nuggets in there about how old scrap iron would like "the game" to be played.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

CB Bucknor would make a great wrassling "referee."
There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.
