‘I Find It Very Difficult’ to Watch: Why MLB Greats Think Baseball’s in Trouble | Bleacher Report | Latest News, Videos and Highlights

I’m not a fan of how long it takes to play games but, other than that specific complaint, baseball is awesome. I say this as someone who, thanks to streaming, gets to enjoy more games than ever. As for the rest…pitchers are better than ever. Batters hit the ball harder than ever. (Jimmy loves the long ball.) Fielders are the most athletic than they have ever been. I love the game. If they just cut down the time between pitches and between innings, It would be perfect.
