More importantly, how is Mickey Doyle still alive?
I think Nucky realizes that his Billie distraction, not Mickey's decision (thanks to Rothstein) to send the trucks through Tabor Heights, was responsible for the subsequent carnage.
In other words, Fitzgerald’s myth of the noble national game despoiled by the greedy Jew ignores the reality that not just the Series but, as Pietrusza also points out, individual games as well were up for sale before the Series. Baseball was no field of dreams but a swamp of corruption, a field of schemes. Rothstein was in on the fix but so were a couple carloads of other wise guys of different ethnicities.
Mickey disregarded a direct and specific order to avoid Tabor Heights. Not only did he get 11 men killed he made a second payment to the local sheriff who immediately rolled over and helps Gyp Rosetti set up the ambush.
we must ask ourselves when examining the statistical record, "How much of this is really real, and how much of these statistics are as real as professional wrestling?"
Nucky is easily the least interesting Character on BE.
This time, with Nucky again nowhere to be found, Mickey succumbed to Rothstein's intimidating voice and sent the trucks through the town. (As you know, going to New York via the back roads was out of the question.)
Q: Paul, What's it like playing Mickey Doyle?
A: It's sort of like driving a really fast car with a very small steering wheel.
So who has played the best Arnold Rothstein In Television and Movies
