As legions of baseball fans rejoice at the return of the game on Opening Day after a long (so very long) winter, another segment of fans is slamming the game for its juiced-up players, slow pace and competitive imbalance."Playing baseball is fun, but watching it (TV or in person, I've tried both) gives me the sudden urge to stab myself in the eyeballs."
"Let me know when they get a salary cap. Not a fan of a league that allows one player to make more than an entire team."
"Baseball is done. It will never, ever return to its heights back in the day. The game is too slow, way too many games in the season, a lot of overpaid out of shape players, everyone is on something, and way too many bad teams. Theres a lot of changes the league would have to do, but never will as they are too stuck on hanging onto "tradition" of the game, which is what I believe is a big part of why its struggling."
