I really missed the boat on that one ! Free agency really was a huge and significant change. It's so far back, it seems, I didn't even think about it.
Sabermetrics is a totally unneeded set of stats IMO.
Some of it is nonsense to me.
It's still about pitching as much as anything and all teams have some and can win on any given day.
You're right, back in the day they were opponents and couldn't fraternize like they do today.
I guess it's going the way of the world.
All of the comments I've seen here on baseball are spot on.
May I add a couple more-lousy umpires irritate me, especially those with an attitude of superiority-(Angel Hernandez wouldn't even make a good Little League umpire), and the inability of the pitcher to be able to throw inside without having a stare-off between he and the batter.

I think it was Drysdale who once said,(paraphrasing here), "You can have one side of the plate, and I'll take the other--but I'm not telling you which side is mine."

As far as the pitch counts go, I don't get that stuff, either. Would Gibson, Marichal, Koufax or any of the others of that era put up with being taken out because they'd thrown 100-110 pitches? I don't think so.
Gibson, in particular would have taken yer head off.

Baseball's still a great game-maybe I'm just stuck in the past.
