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...
Just feel fortunate that you did not see the giant Land o’ Lakes milk carton in right field at the metrodome.

I'll chip in rainouts, rain delays and pitchers that slow the game down excessively out of the stretch...
1. wrong. Baseball, Ray.
2. seriously, complaining about the weather. I think that’s complaining just to complain.

I actually like this. A lot. There was a time when you weren’t considered a great player unless the Yankees were trying to buy you. It’s a cool thing about baseball, the battle of the underdog. It means a lot more when a team like the Royals win the word series, because it takes years of building an organization..

I would guess that you have never been there. Just a guess, though.

True all of this. Except the Jim Edmonds part. Maybe if you explained your dislike, I could understand better.

Why do you have to hate on the Astros.
The Orioles are not in the NL.
I will also add the stupid wild card and divisional playoffs and three divisions. It really takes away the value of winning the pennant. It was awesome when 4 teams made the playoffs. It really separated baseball from other sports.
