The State of MLB

Posted on: September 23, 2008 2:28 pm
 

MLB has gone through some crap in the past ten years or so. Screw the proof readers bay the way I don't care. Let me qualify myself first by saying that I am a baseball purist, take the DH, and instant replay and shove it! Baseball is #1 Football is #1A ... I work part time in a sporting goods store, anyone who thinks Football is bigger that base ball is a FOOL. But, thats not the point I'm trying to make here.

At the begining of the '08 season we had BONDS, we had STEROIDS, we had ESPN telling us that basesball was #2 in our hearts. BULLBLEEP. I'ts hard to "fix" a baseball game, let alone a whole darn season, But let me put this to you,

I'ts the last week of the season, the top four markets for basesball are hopping, attendence is WAY up, and baseball is alive and well in the good ole US.Any service man, businessman, or even a barfly, Could tell tell you whats going on the pennant races today!!!

Hats off to MLB, don't know what they did, but they did it right!

-----Just a thought

the cream always rises to the top. Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, all in the pennant race during the last weeks of September says it all for me.

Come playoff time we'll see who becomes the Cool Whip and who becomes the Whipped Cream. Of course we already know when the Cubs lose they'll once again become the Sour Cream!

Go LA!.....and your Phils of course.

As Always Bat your omments are most welcome and very insightful I did miss the wildcard senario, yes but I agree that the playoff system is creation from neccessity. They can water the sport down all they want, but the cream always rises to the top. Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, all in the pennant race during the last weeks of September says it all for me.

Such passion Win.  Quite the tirade & that whole disclaimer about the proof readers that was just hilarious especially when you read that sentence.  I was busting my stitches on that one.  No doubt it was intentional, you being the clever one that you are.

Lets see what was your point of this glog?  Oh yeah you wanted say that MLB has once again has been crowned king of sports. 

Now I do indeed agree that MLB is once again America's sport.  However I must say I am taken aback by the purist point.  You mentioned the DH and instant replay being basic barbaricism.(o.k. my words not yours)  I think the DH, instant replay and don't forget the WILD CARD only make the sport more enjoyable to a wider mass.

Speaking of a wider mass...you need to get your _______ (oh forget it..even I bataboom batabing won't go there bud. Oh how funny I could've been~)

Although I did take a few of your points and give you a nerf taunt.  I always enjoy anything you write and still the point you're making with this blog still holds true and in that I do agree.  Long Live Baseball! ----now why is it not going to be in the Olympics anymore??????
