    Watch out - the Earth just fell into a dark sun's orbit! Or maybe you'd rather visit a theme park called Hell? These are just two of the strange and unnerving tales you'll find in this collection of great science fiction and fantasy stories.

    "4 Great Stories, the rest are interesting"
    Overall

    4 stars for "Critical Cats", "Breaking Strain", "Vanni Fucci" and "Ado" because they each combine an interesting story with good characters. The other stories are interesting but didn't draw me in as much.

    Balanced by Costas' unbridled appreciation for what he calls the "moments of authenticity" that can still make baseball inspiring, Fair Ball offers a vision of our national pastime as it can be, a game that retains its traditional appeal while initiating meaningful changes that will allow it to thrive into the next century.

    "Good arguments..."
    Overall

    Costas makes good arguments in favor of a salary cap (and floor) and against the DH. The salary cap takes up most of the book. He spends a little time talking about "radical realignment" which thankfully never occurred. He also gives interesting (though outdated by now) numbers related to revenue sharing among the teams. Overall a good book if you're interested in the financial structure and operations of baseball.
