Just went into the MLB homepage to check the standings of the regular season, and lol wut, more than 150 games each team. Each game its like 4 hours (around 17 minutes of actual gametime), surely not even hardcore fans watch all the games? Do they even have them all on TV?

Im a football fan (the real one) and i watch my team play every week, and midweek i often miss the matches because im busy. Or do you guys just check the results the next day?

Watched prob close to half of the games prob more. Who follows more than one team? They show them all if you pay extra. Games are not 4 hours long lol and it starts at 7pm usually so not that hard to eat dinner and watch atleast some of a game at the same time

I thought a lot of regular season games were on during the afternoon when most people are at work?

If I don't watch the game I pay attention to the game on my phone. It's hard when your team plays half it's game during The day

If a West coast team is on the East Coast then yea... most games start at 7 ish local time, most day games are either on Sunday or when a team has a long plane ride for a game the next day... maybe like 8-9 day games not on Sunday total?

And to answer question... not every single one but pretty close

About 100-110 games a year. The ones I miss are always the afternoon. I catch almost every 7pm pacific home game. During the summer I pretty much watch all the games unless it's a weekend and I'm busy.

I probably watch 85%. I sometimes watch while I am doing other things though. And like someone else said, the games do not last 4 hours, unless it's Yankees-Red Sox. Those DB's think they need to drag the games out as long as possible when they play each other.

i don't like, intently watch every single pitch doing nothing else, but if i'm home and there's a game on, i'm watching it unless there's some other sports event i'd rather watch

I don't always have the channel my team is on so when its on a Channel I get I watch. As of late I have been working nights so I usually listen to the game on the radio. And its actually 162 games in the regular season.

I watched almost every single Giants game the last 4 years, but this year I got a bit bored and half assed it (started watching A's games instead since they were still in the race).. But id watch them religiously in the years past. Id even stream it during college classes wat. I didnt have DVR back then, god damn would have been nice to have dvr then

In other words:


I only watched the Giants when they were winning, this year they sucked so I didn't care.



Cliffs:

Typical giants bandwagon.

I watch a good amount of Cubs games. I don't stay tuned in much though, its just background noise while I'm on my computer or something. Also they are on at the gym so I'll watch in between sets.

GNARKILL!

Probably see 75-85% of the games live or on TV. It's so easy to just turn the TV on at 7pm and just have it there while I relax, make dinner, eat etc..

I watch 95% of all 15 games every night, except if there are afternoon games, I never catch those.

Usually watch around 10 games a year. More if they are any good.

The best way to keep up with your favorite team is the through the radio. Fun to listen too and you can get work done or do other relaxing things.

Come playoff time though, it's better to watch on tv.

I'm sure your robust schedule at age 16 was hard to work around.

The Angels weren't even close to a playoff birth. No one on that team is fun to watch besides Trout.

I watched at least 75% of the Phillies games this year. I try to catch a few innings at least. Since they were pretty much ass this year I have gone to less games, but I'll still watch them when I get the chance.

It's impossible to catch every game if you're employed, but I watched a lot of evening Red Sox games, while only watching a handful of the non-Boston games. To be honest, I would say that, more often than not, I only caught 4-5 innings because four hour games are too long, nobody got time for that.
