I love Baseball, but here are things I hate about baseball

Postby kaiser » Thu Jun 17, 2010 8:46 pm

Baseball is the greatest game in the world. Without question.

Here is a list of things I hate about baseball, that have nothing to do with the actual game:

1. People who sit behind the dugouts, call everyone they know on their cell phones, and then wave like baboons. Then do it again the next inning. And the next...

2. The giant Coke bottle, and the giant Chick-fil-A cow in left field at Turner Field in Atlanta.

Please feel free to add anything else...

I'm just surprised Bud Selig hasn't figured out a way to sell advertising space on the infield dirt yet.

I agree with you - except for the fact that football is the greatest game in the world. baseball is a solid 2nd.

I'll chip in rainouts, rain delays and pitchers that slow the game down excessively out of the stretch...

No salary cap, making small market teams into farm teams. I hate this more than I hate any other thing about any other sport at any level.

How about ball parks now feeling like they have to have some kind of "race" between innings, be it sausages, presidents, or the like. In Atlanta, it's Home Depot tools on the big video screen.

Also, hot tubs located anywhere within a ballpark. If Ty Cobb came back from the dead and went to a ball game, the first thing he would do is beat the crap out of those people...

Only if he materialized right next to the hot tubs. If he appeared in the third deck box seats, he'd beat the crap out of the fans in the third deck box seats. If he appeared outside the ballpark, he'd beat the crap out of the ticket takers. If he appeared somewhere far away, he'd go to the nearest NAACP branch and beat the crap out of everyone there.

Ty Cobb isn't a man you'd want to align yourself with. :-b

Exactly right. In fact, there is a statue of him sliding into home plate, outside of Turner Field in Atlanta. Whenever I see people posing by the statue, I think, if that was the real Ty Cobb, he'd be trying to spike you right now...

If I had to pick one thing that wasn't about salary, I'd probably go with the DH. Or more specifically that the leagues don't field the same players and I think I like the NL setup better.
