Random Topics - Major League Baseball (MLB)

Major League Baseball (MLB) is the highest level of play in North American professional baseball. Specifically, Major League Baseball refers to the organization that operates the National League and the American League, by means of a joint organizational structure that has developed gradually between them since 1903 (the National League having been in existence since 1876). In 2000, the two leagues were officially disbanded as separate legal entities with all rights and functions consolidated in the commissioner's office. MLB effectively operates as a single league and as such it constitutes one of the major professional sports leagues of the United States.

1 Bud Selig is going bye bye soon. Retirement announced. Hopefully someone who replaces him can rescue MLB from his iron-clamped bullshit. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on August 22, 2014, 4:19 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Two words: Bud Selig. This asshat is unquestionably the most inept piece of shit who was ever put in charge of a major sport. Just retire already! -- Submitted By: (TheTruth) on May 22, 2013, 10:45 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Pylrulz, I have to agree with you on this. I think the same can be said about all sports now days. I personally think the NBA seems to be taking the biggest boning as of late. Its really a damn shame, for me, I just like the competition. I absolutely can't stand all the BS drama. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on March 17, 2012, 12:59 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I just think MLB boning is truly a matter of opinion. One could say the strike, one could say steroids, one could say the money (especially if you are a fan of a small market team). I'll go with series of boning and unboning the past 20 years -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on March 13, 2012, 6:45 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I'm inclined to believe that the 1994 players strike was the boning moment. If it wasn't for that strike, Tony Gwynn probably would have been the first player to hit .400 in a season since Ted Williams did so in 1941. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on May 2, 2011, 9:00 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 It's not that the season is too long, 162 games is actually more reasonable than the other sports given the nature and tradition of the game. Rather, the problem is the games themselves are too long. When the basics of baseball were set in stone in the late 19th century, games lasted about an hour to 90 minutes, so 9 innings was a reasonable number to have. However, pitchers then basically just tossed the ball to the plate at maybe 80 mph and hitters who, frankly, probably couldn't play A-ball now, knocked them around into playing fields. It made for a fast game and pitchers could pitch a lot more. But throughout the 20th century teams looked for benefit on the margins by recruiting around the world to max out hitter quality, and at the same time had their pitchers throw much harder than pitchers used to, and go for strikeouts rather than just putting the ball in play. This all cause the number of pitches and pitcher changes to skyrocket, dramatically slowing down games. My drastic solution is really quite simple. When baseball chose 9 innings, it wasn't just for the heck of it, it was because 9 innings resulted in an enjoyable game that a single pitcher could usually complete, and would last 60 to 90 minutes. 9 innings is far too many with the way people play nowadays. 6 is a good number, 5 might even be better. You'd see good pitchers almost always post CGs and games over 2 hours would be uncommon. It'll never happen, but it would result in individual games that would be much more enjoyable given the modern level of performance. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on January 21, 2010, 8:41 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Like all sports, the seasons run too long. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on December 7, 2009, 7:08 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
