Thought for the Day

Football is an adrenaline game.  Baseball is a sport of properly balanced metabolism.  Steinbrenner hasn't a clue as to the difference.

In football, you can fire the coach and threaten the players, bribe and intimidate with instant rewards and punishments.  A coach must manipulate emotions on this ultraviolent end of the behavior spectrum.  In baseball, a sense of moderation is almost a philosophical precept.
