OK I'll Say It
Baseball is a beautiful game. When the game is well-pitched and well-played this sport can't be matched by any other sport. But, just as baseball can be the most wonderful sport, there can be nothing more brutal than a poorly pitched, poorly paced, poorly played baseball game. I know this because I just witnessed a three game series between the Cardinals and the Pirates that was just excruciating. These three nine inning games went 3:09, 3:04, and 3:13. There was no pace, no drama, no nothing to these games. Ok I'll say it - I'd rather watch soccer.
