Why is Pro Baseball so Boring?

I was sitting on my couch, wondering why FSN had been replaced with the ROOT Channel, a TV channel for just Mariners Baseball. I was quite mad, due to the fact that I wanted to watch the Seattle Sounders play, so I started watching the Mariners play. I nearly fell asleep, baseball is the most boring sport ever.

I wonder, why baseball is “America’s Pastime,” it is characterized by many overweight sluggers, who hit 4o+ home runs a year, that most likely use steroids, which means that there is no value in their baseball cards, and we want to watch them actually play. Pitchers aren’t as exciting as when Randy Johnson, Nolan Ryan, Orel Hershiser, and Fernando Valenzuela played, last years Al Cy Young Winner Felix Hernandez only posted a record of 13-12. Quite horrible for a “Pitchers Dream” record.

Pro Ball just isn’t that interesting, face it. The only good part about baseball is Fantasy Baseball.

Adrian Gonzalez is going to be wearing a Redsox Jersey for a couple more years at least. Today, they agreed on a MEGA CONTRACT worth $154 Million. He is the perfect fit in Fenway Park, he can hit the ball.

 Many Redsox fans are wondering if this will help the Redsox turn their struggling season around. The Redsox are 2-9 on the season, last place in the AL East. They kinda are not good right now, like really horribly bad, at everything. hopefully by removing the distraction of the contract renewal, they will play to their full potential.

I for one, think the Redsox are overated, at least coming into the season they were. They are a bunch of old, slightly overpayed baseball players. They don’t have a strong pitching staff, they don’t have good field play, horrible hitter, they are just bad. If they focused less on trying to get overated sluggers and focused more on a pitcher that can strike a batter out, they might be able to turn around a miserable start to this MLB Season. I probably shouldn’t talk though, I like the Mariners and they are 4-9, not a whole lot better, but at least they aren’t overated.

This is classic, I couldn’t stop laughing for 10 minutes. This guy is just running around on the field, No one chases him. It is so hilarious, classic baseball. This is a good way to start this MLB Season.

If you like this video comment about it.

Mariner’s outfielder Itchiro Suzuki donated 100 million yen (about 1.24 million dollars) to his home country Japan. He donated the money to the Japanese Red Cross to help in the wake of the earthquake and tsunami.

The Mariners majority owners, Nintendo, also donated 3.7 million dollars to help with disaster relief. The Mariners are going to dedicate their first six home games of the upcoming MLB season to the displaced and victims of the earthquake and tsunami.

Japanese athletes have shown great compassion and sorrow for their home country following the earthquake and tsunami. This is only one example.
