    I liked it last game when the goalie hit it all the way over the net to score the field goal.

    Baseball's the sport with the net in the middle that they hit back and forth, right?

    Awesome to watch, but I'm not a very good athlete. Except in soccer, curiously.

    But this thread isn't about soccer.

    just got back yesterday from a two day trip to detroit. basically just went there to see the tigers play at comerica. it was delayed an hour due to rain, but at least it was a good game after that, unlike last night when it was just a blow out. great park too, a lot better than i expected.

    as for the jays, they had an awful august. they need to start winning again now before it's too late.

    I only know like 3 baseball teams:Yankees, Red Sox and White sox. Baseball is not my type of sport! My favorite sports are football and hockey!

    M's fan here so it's pretty dismal existence. This season is actually looking pretty good though. Could maybe take the AL West(if not a wildcard birth will go to a member of the AL west for sure) if they keep playing at the pace they have been recently. Got a big series with the A's coming up that will basically decide it.

    Baseball sucks for many reasons. 1. It's a pretty boring sport to watch, it takes a long time to set everything up and due to the lack of strategy it becomes complacent and familiar, which sucks. 2. It's forced on Americans. It's like this sport wasn't invented naturally, it was forced down our throats by America and Fox News. I mean think about it, if you don't like baseball you're not American which sucks because I'll have to be deported. 3. Basketball and Football are way much better, Basketball in particular because you have energy, you have unpredictability, you have... Well, fun.

    That's it.

    fuck off. Baseball is just as strategic as any sport. People just can't grasp things that flow at a slower pace(I mean just look at like the way "art-house[ugh]"cinema or sophisticated televison shows are treated) and it's kinda sad. Sorry you need constant flowing action to be entertained (I still wouldn't even say baseball is all that slow)

    In gym Baseball was always my least favorite to play because I always got nervous that I wouldn't catch the ball and lose the game, making everyone mad.

    Never been to Comerica. I've been to Busch Stadium in St. Louis (obviously), Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Coors Field in Demver, Miller Park in Milwaukee, Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Turner Field in Atlanta, and what was at the time Dolphins Stadium in Miami. I'd say Miller Park was my favorite. It just looks so awesome.

    We're most likely going to make the playoffs as a wild card team. I'm all right with that, but every time we seem to be busting out, we go on a losing skid. It's very frustrating. We lost Molina for pretty much the whole season, but I like Pierzynski. I think he's playing pretty well.

    Edit: Oh wait, Molina's back! I didn't know he was progressing this well. Awesome.

    i've never gotten this at all. i played baseball on varsity all through high school and i can buy that you might find it boring, but the amount of strategy involved on every single pitch is absolutely ridiculous.

    What do you guys think of the DH rule? It looks like most of you guys are American League team fans. I don't care for it. I understand why it was implemented, but I feel like there's a lot more managerial strategy involved without the DH. They've been saying that baseball's considering implementing the DH in the NL as well sometime in the future, and I pray that doesn't happen.

    @Ryan, if you're a baseball fan, then by all means, talk baseball with us.

    Now, what do you guys think of the DH rule?

    i'm been to the Skydome a million times (just went today), PNC Park and Progressive Field a few times, and Comerica once. PNC Park is definitely my favourite. was gonna go to Citizens Bank but the Phillies were out of town when i went there.

    i watch a lot of Pirates games, as their my second favourite team, and i can honestly say i like the dh rule. i just like more hitters at the bat.
