"The '98 season is probably the most bittersweet season in baseball history for the first time in a long time baseball was front and center. Baseball was more important than football. And, and it was one of, for the first time I realized what the old timers would say when they were talking about '41 when DiMaggio had his fifty-six game hitting streak and Williams hit .406. And every single day you wanted to know what happened. Every single day you wanted to know did he hit one? And people were talking about McGwire and Sosa in the same way.That was the year when finally it all the sins of the strike were forgiven."
