But I agree baseball needs to change some stuff
try as much as possible to speed up the pace of the game
get some youth around the game no more Berman,Mccarver,Buck..some younger broadcasters
Still with all it's issues give me baseball over the NBA (Which according to ESPN is the best sport in the world) any day
The pace of the game is torturous, and that's really the main thing I was referring to. Sunday night I was watching Yankees - Red Sox, arguably the greatest sports rivalry in the world, and was falling asleep. The pitcher deals a pitch, and it's a ball, so the batter steps out of the box and rearranges his gloves for about 30 seconds, walks around, steps back in, makes sure he's set. The pitcher then stares down the catcher, shakes him off once, twice, finally nods, and goes into the stretch... and deals ball 2. Repeat the above.
Holy crap, I says to myself.
