Default Who watches Major League Baseball

After years of not watching MLB I decided to come back and try this year from the start. You know really get into it. Since I am in Florida now and trying to break the mold of your old home town is the favorite I picked Tampa Bay Rays. I gave it three innings. Probably the grossest thing I've seen on television in years. I timed it. In five minutes I seen 10 exhibitions of spitting in HD. One was inside the dugout. My choice is not to watch and that is my choice. I didn't count the amount of testicle tugging although not as much as projectile saliva heaving that I observed. How do you fans watch this stuff without getting queasy ?

The hundreds of HD spitting events in any major league baseball game literally turns my stomach. The fields and dirt must be saturated by spittle from the years of it occurring. I imagine it started with the tobacco chaw and gum chewing so prevalent in baseball

I am watching the Tampa Bay - Boston Red Sox game right now. I notice in the Sox dugout three one gallon or so size barrels full of Dubble Bubble chewing gum!

Spitting? Bubble Gum? Professional Testicle Tugging?

I sure am glad my T.V. came with a power button!

Well, as far as baseball-the game.... I simply cannot watch that sport for too long anymore. sloooooooooow. The nation's pastime is simply way too slow and way too long. The old 'watching paint dry' is so true. And with many pro sports now - I tend to not get into watching multimillionaires playing a game and still complaining. done.

As long as they are standing when its important to me before the game they can carry on as necessary. My dad used to say leave it alone it will grow. About a million jokes are going through my mind I better conclude now.

I love baseball. Love it. I even love watching pitching duels. I also love watching my home team who, unfortunately, rarely had a winning season in the last quarter century. (There's always a new year.)

I love every technical thing about the game, plus the fact that it's on almost every day. I just ignore the spitting and the tugging. I actually don't see too much tugging anymore, so that piece of sports equipment must have gotten better design down through the years. I could do without the spitting, but it doesn't keep me from enjoying the sport.

To each his own.

Do not watch MLB. I watch college baseball once the CWS starts. I watch college softball all season long, through the regionals and CWS.. during regular season, I only watch SEC teams.

Only if the Yankees are playing but this thread isn't about sports watching, it's more about what players do between pitches. IMHO

If one is a Tampa Rays fan, Dish covers almost all of their games on channel 412.
