I agree, it's good for baseball that these races have become close. However, it's not good for baseball if Tampa Bay ends up winning, which is what looks like will happen. A few years away from a World Series appearance, they are about to finish off an epic comeback and make the playoffs and they draw 18,000 to a game last night, against the Yankees no less. Someone remind me why Tampa has a professional baseball team?
