Heh heh. I'm exclusively baseball too. It's depressing to peek in over there at the football side. That place is going nuts with the season just starting. Kinda makes me sad to notice how this site is slowing down for the end of the season...
I've been thinking the same thing. I'm a NY Giants fan too, and I poke around over there occasionally, but it's just not the same. An inferior game.

Nah, its not inferior. Football is rarely boring. Baseball can get boring all the time. Heck, I can barely watch or listen to the Cubs anymore this season because its too depressing.
In fantasy terms, I get bored really easily with football. I tried it for a couple years, and after playing baseball it just seems like a joke that there are only 16 games, compared to the volume of games in baseball. Baseball keeps me a lot more engaged.
As far as boring football - blowouts are plenty boring. So are defensive struggles where both offenses are equally inept, and both of these types of game happen often enough. In baseball, on the other hand, pitcher's duels are a thing of beauty.
I just like all the strategy and nuance that goes into baseball, it seems a lot more intricate than football. Plus there's the whole numbers thing (otherwise, there'd be a SAFR). But to each his own.
You don't seriously think there is more strategy in baseball, do you? Football has many more players on the field at a time, with playbooks the size of phone books, and much more in depth scouting and just in general, more strategy, because the game demands it. Blowouts generally aren't boring because theres a lot of points being scored. But to each his own, I guess. Plus a lot of the games in baseball are utterly meaningless. I mean, in a roto league, about half the league is finished by the all star break.
