  1. Harry Leon Wilson:

  2. Walt Whitman:

    I see great things in baseball. It's our game--the American game. It will take our people out-of-doors, fill them with oxygen, give them a larger physical stoicism. Tend to relieve us from being a nervous, dyspeptic set. Repair these losses, and be a blessing to us.

  4. Larry Leverenz:

    You're not going to change the game. You are not going to get rid of the game, at least. So how can you make changes that keep the spirit of the game there, keep players enjoying, keep fans enjoying the game but at the same time be safe.

  5. Jamie Squire/Getty Images:

    I think it's going to be close. I don't know if they have enough magic left. I mean, what they've done to get here, it's been a shock. There's so much talent on that LA Rams team. There is so much depth. There’s so much star power. There’s game-changers, jalen Ramsey can change the game in one interception for a touchdown. Aaron Donald can change the game in one sack. Von Miller has taken over a Super Bowl (in the past). They have so many game-changing, game-wrecking players everywhere. There’s so many players in that defense, and it’s tough to overcome.
