At the beginning I thought it'd be good for the New York area if the Yankees won, but who can cheer for a team that has won more than one in four championships since the inception of their game? We aren't talking about a run of luck or a new league being formed; the Yankees represent a single franchise dominating an entire sport's history. Any other situation and the FTC would be stepping in to break up the monopoly. Somehow, I doubt Sherman had the Yankees in mind when he penned the Antitrust Act, but where does it apply more? Let's spread the butter a little better on the bread and make baseball a competition for a change.
