Is anyone else bored by this insane excuse for a baseball season?

As well as disgust with the 7 innings rule for double headers.

@Sturgis,

at bats have become a narrow band of homers, strikeouts or walks.

can't remember the last time i saw someone get a triple.

the sawx have quickly hit rock bottom... pitching has been non-existent.

that said, baseball -- along with the other three major sports -- has been a welcome distraction the last few months...

@Sturgis,
Not happy about it at all. Baseball in summer and early fall makes things seem normal. Of course, with RS at the bottom (plus selling off Mookie Betts), it killed of a lot of my interest. Then there’s the shitty pitching, losing thei! former manager due to cheating scandal. You name it. Waahhhh!!

However, more so than other sports, B-ball relies on the energy as well as proximity of fans to the action.

@Sturgis,
The change where you have to only play 7 innings for double headers is idiotic. What was that supposed to be fixing? Nuttin’ honey!

My poor Yankees are in danger of being eliminated from this sad short screwy season of baseball playoffs.

There there. You can join us Red Sox fans for a pint and commiserate on what a terrible baseball season it was.

@Sturgis,
I saw a moonshot Stanton hit the other day. In fact, hasn’t he got 6 HR altogether? When the ball came down, it was covered with icicles!

They hit a slew of HRs, so how can they be hurting? What the need now is Sparky Lyle.

@tsarstepan,
Thanks for the offer; however, as a true Yankees fan, such an occurrence can never be for me.
