A game that takes all sorts of cunning, wit, skill, coordination, speed and yes, steroids. This sport is America's pasttime and was at one point actually fun to watch, a game where very few pitchers could throw in the 90s and it didn't even revolve around the longball (hard to imagine). These days, the question is who is the next big steroid bust going to be and how much money the trade will be worth. Unfortunately, the commissioner of baseball (Bud Selig) will never be able to truely enforce any regulation to clean up the game because of the incredibly strong Major League Baseball Players Association (led by anti-testing proponent donald Fehr). The MLBPA also has kept baseball as the only professional sport without a hard salary cap, which allows powerhouse teams such as the Yankees to buy all the high-market talent.
It is still a fun sport, but it would be a bad idea for anyone to attend or watch any baseball games until the sport is cleaned up.
Rafael Palmeiro: "Let me start by telling you this: I have never used steroids, period."

Rafael Palmeiro: "I have never intentionally used steroids. Never. Ever. Period. Ultimately, although I never intentionally put a banned substance into my body, the independent arbitrator ruled that I had to be suspended under the terms of the program."
Jason Grimsley confessed to the use of human growth hormones, amphetamines and steroids in 2003. Grimsley openly admitted to having half of his net-worth invested in his brother-in-law's pharmaceutical company and that he, Grimsley, was playing baseball as a hobby - implying that Grimsley is deeply entrenched personally and financially in widespread steroid use throughout Major League Baseball.
What people think about to avoid premature ejaculation, when having sex.
I wanted to please my wife, so I thought about baseball.
a very hard ball
able to do some damage
a fan was struck in the ass with a baseball and now has an stretched out rectum
The greatest sport ever. PERIOD. Misunderstood by jackasses who have never seen or been to a game.
For everyone who says that baseball is boring, my response is that it is only boring to you because you're too much of an ignorant prick to realize the complexities of the game.
You just see a pitcher throwing a ball to a guy with a bat. You don't see that the pitch is an outside breaking ball because the pitcher's hoping to get the guy to hit a ground ball to the right side for a double play.
You don't see the shortstop and second baseman signal who has coverage every pitch based on the hitter and situation.
You don't see the outfield playing a deep shift to left field when Albert Pujols is batting.
You don't see the pitcher back up third on a ball hit to the outfield with a man on first or, for that matter, the first baseman trailing behind the runner in case of a run-down.
You don't see a pull hitter hitting to the opposite field because there is a gap where the second baseman is playing closer to the bag because he has coverage on the steal.
You just see a man with a glove throwing a ball to a man with a stick...and for THAT...you are a dumbass.
Ignorant baseball hater: Baseball is boring!
Ball fan/player: Why do you say that!
Ignorant baseball hater: Because all it is is some guy throwing a ball to some guy with a stick!
Ball fan/player: But yet you don't see that he's trying to trick the batter into either swinging at a bad pitch or he's trying to get him to hit a ground ball to short? Besides, have you ever tried to hit a 90 MPH fast ball?
Ignorant baseball hater: No.
Ball fan/player: I rest my case.
Baseball is a sport which I know and love. Anyone who can take the time and learn every aspect of this amazing sport is high on my list. It takes cunning, skill, determination, speed (especially), and persistance to do well and have fun. But winning is nice too.
Did you see that baseball player? Look at that speed.
A game only intelligent people understand.
Baseball isn't just about home runs, dumbass!
Yes, people use baseball to define sports and marajuana, but it is also used to describe, surprise surprise, SEX! When people are too ashamed to say what they have done sexually, they refer to the base system.
First Base: Kissing or Making Out
Second Base: Fingering or Touching each other
Third Base: Oral Sex
Home Base: Vaginal Sex
Jack: "I played a little baseball last night."
John: "Really? Did you make a home run?"
Competition to see who can withstand the most steroids.
Boy#1: "Yo Big Jason, do you think the yankees will win the baseball game tonight."
Boy#2: "Nah, they will lose, Alex Rodriguez quit taking steroids a long time ago."
