I to am developing a distain for baseball...
If the game is going along and progressing along, fine.
but when I can, with a clock, time out 30 -45 seconds between PITCHES, thats when I get irritaded.
like the batter that swings and misses, then proceeds to step back out of the box, take a couple practice swings. adjust his gloves, re apply his batting armor(another thing that irks me) spit 8 or 9 sunflower seeds, knock the dirt out of his cleats, get back in the box, digg lil holes with his cleats to plant his feet and FINALLY get into stance. THEN we have to wait for the pitcher and catcher to do about the same. GET ON WITH IT.
If your a batter and not ready for the next pitch in 8 seconds, your OUT
if your a catcher or pitcher and not ready to throw or catch the ball in that same 8 seconds, Point for the other team.
more than 5 of the infractions your ejected and the inning is over.
done and done....

Baseball is a lot more fun to play than to watch. There are so many dang channels out there, why mix sports programs with other shceduled shows. No sport that they televise ends by the clock.

I've been watching some motorcycle racing lately (cause they turn right too); and then I saw a sticker about racing, it said "Racing, because baseball, football, basketball, and soccer only require ONE ball"

I played baseball for 10 years and loved it. I love going to the stadium and catching a good game but I can't stand to watch it on TV. Same goes for basketball. The only sports I watch on TV are college football, boxing, MMA and women's beach volleyball.

Best thread ever.
Everything about baseball sucks. The game, the players, the drinking (the sad kind), the rules, the teams, the fans, the stupid gifts they give you, the parking, and the salaries they pay these guys to use steroids, lie about it, and sit on their behinds.

I read somewhere a few years ago that in a professional baseball game the time that the ball is actually in play is under 5 minutes.
5 MINUTES and we sit there for hours watching it?
Let's go shoot some cans!!!!!
