"It's created rivalries. it's created excitement in September. It's created fascinating playoffs and World Series.We had a sport, and I my first year was 1970 so I want to include myself, that was resistant to change. Other things in life seemed to be going by it. As much as I loved the game you, you knew there were things that we should be doing. We had expanded on multiple occasions. And yet we still had the same divisions and the same small number of teams in the playoff. It didn't make any sense. It wasn't fair to the teams. It wasn't fair to the fans."
