Hope he goes to a good team
cards would never dealt him to us. id rather have boldin and crabtree and a high draft pick then fitz and his huge contract. Maybe his dropoff in play isn't just bad QB play...maybe his age is catching up to him

Nope, he tried today and it didn't go well for him. Only had two TDs.


yea that is a little below average for him bahaha

beisbol should go away
he wont get 14 mill from anyone. any team he goes to will negotiate a new contract i would think. Fitz, Boldin and Crabs with VD would be insane
That's crazy that the giants-vikes game outdrew the World Series.
I like baseball but I find hockey more exciting honestly. The hits, the scores and roars of the goal horns, the fights, the fantastic finishes often times, shootouts, etc.
I think it is because Baseball is a good ole boy sport and the people who run it have become old and out of date whereas football is changing rules and taking action to keep the action in the game. Baseball keeps giving the "that's how we've done it" reply. They refuse to change.

Personally, they should reduce the innings to 7 to protect starting pitchers for more complete games, make all stadium the same distances, and allow steroids but monitor it so no player is on for longer than 5 months and not taking during the season or in the offseason, one or the other.

Their refusal to change is outdating the sport out of popularity.

Sure, they will make some runs, win some divisions, but will eventually face a team with an expensive super talented roster and will be outmatched. Its a shame, i used to be a huge baseball fan too.
I used to be a big baseball fan but the game just seems meaningless. In the preseason you could probably guess 10 teams that will be there in the end and get 8 of them right. The 2 surprise teams that make it in will just get eliminated in the 1st round. They play 162 games over a very long season and then get to the playoffs and speed it up with 5 game series???

This is my first year in probably 20 where I haven't watched a single game all year.

I have him in 2 fantasy leagues. He got 2 tds but in the future he won't make every reception a TD. he only played 18 snaps on offense. I have no idea what to do with him???

this is a problem. in an era where half of the country is under the poverty line they dont like hearing about ten players on a team getting paid hundreds of millions. america loves underdogs. Hard cap needs to be instituted, and some rules need to be changed to make it more exciting. the nfl is drama packed because there are so few games played every season. Baseball has the opposite of this going on with 180~ games? played a year. Did I mention that it's also boring as f**k? I like going to see the isotopes games locally (dodgers farm team) but hell going to a baseball game and watching it on TV are two totally different things. I could argue the merits of attending a game for three pages, however, the majority of fans are reached through the medium of television, and as long as baseball continues to be boring, the market will continue to shrink.

I don't care if you guys don't like baseball, but at least know what the hell you are talking about. There have been plenty of articles and data shown that baseball actually has more parity than NFL. That cap crap has no effect on making the playoffs or winning championships. They need to change it, but not for that reason.
I never said that it had any effect on making the playoffs or winning a championsip. All I said was that people don't like listening to players salaries in the hundreds of millions. I think it's boring, and a single game in the regular season is VERY rarely make-or-break. There's no drama.
