i don't like it either. some stupid rules and if i wanted to watch a sport that i couldn't follow the path of the ball or puck i'd watch hockey for the fights.
Edit: not to mention that lacrosse, like almost all other sports, can't compare to baseball for a couple of reasons. baseball is a sport where size helps but is not necessary and speed isn't always required (ie pujols, but being one of the best hitters on the planet helps him out). most importantly, baseball is one of the few sports that actually tests your mind almost as much as your body. with so many situations possible, it is imperative that a player knows his job on the next play and can make split second decisions to get the runner out or lay off that slider about to drop off the table. and i'll conclude with a quote, "you cant sit on a lead and run a few plays into the line to run the last couple minutes off the clock. you've got to throw the ball over the god damned plate and give the other man his chance. That's why baseball is the greatest sport of them all"
