RANT: Baseball needs a mercy rule … … for the fans

*** begin quote ***

I heard that result. Incredible. I was listening to the Met game and the announcer said “And, in Baltimore, Texas has added another touchdown – they missed the extra point – in the 9th to make it 30-3.

Baltimore was up 3-0 in that game after three innings. Hard to believe they scored all those runs in 4 innings (failed to score in the fifth and seventh innings).

*** end quote ***

And doesn’t everyone agree that (1) the ball is different; (2) the strike zone is smaller; (3) the players are on steroids; (4) the ball parks are smaller; (5) the pitching is poorer; (6) the bats are “livelier”; (7) the owners are raking it in; (8) so are the players; AND (9) the “stars” have a feeling and give off an air of entitlement. Makes me lot less of a fan!
