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.

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 He also gives interesting (though outdated by now) numbers related to revenue sharing among the teams.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.
Bob Kostas is good. Bob Kostas is smart. Bob Kostas knows baseball.
This is a look at what MLB could do to get better. The owners are not good, they are not smart, so there is little chance baseball will improve.
