In a paragraph sum up the state of major league baseball.

Watched maybe an inning, but pick up snippets from the forum, radio and the newspaper.

This I know.

Verlander pitched a no hitter.

Yankees, Dodgers and Houston are division leaders (At least i think they are.)

About 75% of the teams will set home run records.

Whole bunch of strike outs as everyone is swinging for the fences.

"nets to the outfield" have not happened yet.

    Spring training games are fun, after that pretty much the only updates I catch are here.

    I never cared in my 4 decades as a MLB fan ..........
    1. How hard a pitch was hit...
    2. At what angle a pitch was hit
    3. How far to the inch a pitch traveled

    B/c as long as the ball went over the fence it still counted as a HR......

    And I still don't care about any of the above... & also about any of the sales pitches made by MLB about HR's in their massive marketing campaign to both erase Bonds' memory as the HR record stealer from Aaron as well as the whole sordid PED scandal. TO draw more fans as attendance deteriorates across the league MLB created JUICED BALLS. IT is what is going on behind the scenes and MLB is in charge of its genesis.

    Aaron is still the HR leader. All of bonds numbers mean SQUAT!!!

    I can do it in one word SLOW.

    Go to youtube and watch a game from the 1960's. The difference will be obvious immediately.

    A little baseball humor for you. I've probably made this wise crack before, but here goes nothing. "Will someone please tell Barry Bonds that his dog is loose again."

    Unacceptable if the Sox don’t make the playoffs. Immediate word? SLOW

    Is that photo shopped or did some scumbag experiment on that dog? No way it’s legit
