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.
