I want you to know that I am a huge baseball fan. But, what has baseball come to? More specifically, what has the MLB come to? It's become so political that I can't help but feel disgusted whenever I watch a baseball game. This thought of mine really came about during the whole Alex Rodriguez scandal. A-Rod was accused of using illegal steroids. Then, SportsCenter and MLB Network set all the attention on his situation. Brian Cashman made some comments about A-Rod and he wound up in hot water. And for the remaining time, until A-Rod's return to the field, every Yankee game was centered around him. Forget the political side for a minute. What about commentary? Whenever I watch a Yankee game, the commentary is more silent and depressing than Michael Cole after a babyface gets beaten up by a heel. Michael Kay and whoever is his co-announcer at the time (Ken Singleton, Jack Curry, etc.) barely talk during at-bats. I know it's all about the game pity2, but a lack of commentary makes the game boring. Especially when the batter keeps hitting foul balls. Baseball has gotten alot less exciting during the regular season. I can't wait for the playoffs. My favorite time of the year (besides football season/playoffs).
