Srs. I love to play baseball very fun. But as of recently I got my satellite back up and have been watching ESPN and I got to admit I am dissapointed with the MLB.

Attendance is very low
No superstars..
Boring

I think there should be 2 games a week for every team(on the weekend) maybe this will put the MLB back to it's glory days.

Are you a tard? Teams would then only have 2 starting pitchers.

The sport itself is very slow paced and uneventful to watch. Playing it can be fun if the ball is hit to you, but watching a pitcher throw a ball to be caught routinely in the outfield is so boring.

MLB is the highest attended sport in the world. For example, the SF Giants home games will see like 3.4 million spectators which doubles any competition in any sport in any country.


But i agree on letting them juice. The sport needs a new Barry Bonds.




Baseball requires you to have a "team" in order to enjoy it. For example I dont give a damn about east coast baseball teams but as a Giants fan there are a core group of teams I watch.

I agree way too may games. They should play no more than 82 games a season 160 or whatever it is, is just way too much

That's still an average of almost 50,000 per game. More than double the average attendance of the highest NBA attendance.

Most of the arenas in the NBA are half the size of any of the major teams in the NBA. Every team in the NBA, minus two (the Indiana Pacers missed by half a point), averaged over 75% attendance during the course of the season. The same cannot be said for the MLB whose lowest team was around forty percent. While this is due, in part, to the larger stadiums, attendance in the MLB is dwindling.

Absolutely. But baseball's issue isn't the number of games. They have an issue with the cost of attending a stadium.

less teams would be better than less games. MLB also plays in the middle of the day on weekdays. which is contrary to every sport besides soccer. so percentage of attendance is pretty bias due to: time, stadium size, and amounts of games.

Brb, watching the same 3-4 teams win the title year after year.
brb, watching a ball go into a hoop 200+ times a game


You either like it, or don't. No point in arguing an opinion.

For someone who understands the game, watching on TV can be somewhat unsatisfying.

But seeing as how as one of your top complaints is the number of people in the stands of games you are watching on TV, I don't think this applies to you.

Also, that edit isn't helping you seeing as how your original post has been quoted multiple times ITT.
