Diversions as Art

The Yankees are not looking very well. They are playing the Mets, also of New York. If New York loses today… wait. If Yankees lose today, they will be swept by Mets, meaning they have lost all three games against. This is not good.

I went to art museum this weekend and saw exhibition of some very good local art. There may be an art to baseball, too, like there is art to all diversions (games). Marcel Duchamp perceived relationship and quit his art career to study chess. He found chess positions beautiful, as do I. Baseball has positions, too, and not just like first and second base men. There are runners and fielders in certain configurations.
