Nationals Infielder Anthony Rendon Labels Baseball ‘Too Long And Boring’

“I don’t watch baseball—it’s too long and boring,” he told the Washington Post.

The Nationals are in the middle of a pennant race and their best hitter does not like watching baseball. Is that a problem? His success thus far in 2014 suggests otherwise.

<\blockquote>

Yeah, and I don’t really watch tapes of technical reviews and staff meetings when I come home.  They too, are too long and boring.  Although, strictly speaking, they are not billed as entertainment.

The comparison to soccer in TFA is interesting.  The beautiful game can be painfully slow but at least that clock keeps moving and you have some idea when it will end.  This tied Angels-Mariners game I’m watching is moving at a pace that suggests it may never end.  They should just go to penalty kicks and be done with it.
