Baseball was my pride and joy in my younger years (6-15 years old) when the strike happened, it killed it for me I was so upset, I didn't even start watching again until 2001. And then McGwire and Sosa happened, I didn't think I could ever get into baseball again, then the SF Giants won their first World Series since the 50's. So I got into baseball again because to me there was new hope, maybe to forget about the strike and steroids, before you know it Melky happened.
Now I'm done
Baseball is a joke now imo, I feel like the little kid whose father keeps promising he will come visit and take him to the park, gets ready and all excited and boom he never shows up. That's baseball they make promises to keep the game clean, make all these promises to not let the fans down and then they disappoint everyone.
To me there is no sport like football, yea its not perfect, but it has become that national pass time that baseball once was, so when football is on no other sports even exists in my world.
