Re: what makes cricket a good spectator sport

Another problem for MLB is that they don't really have any controversial players to get buzz or interest in their games, one of the reason's the Heat get such good ratings is because they have LeBron and after all the drama about where he's going to play he's gained more interest to the team.

Right now the only controversial player in baseball is A-Rod and he hasn't done anything worth note off the field in awhile.

Re: what makes cricket a good spectator sport

@ The "World Series". You Americans and your ego's. Just like when the Seahawks beat the Saints a few weeks back and the coach said "It's great to beat the World Champions". lul wut?

Oh and nothing about cricket is good, it's garbage, fucking painfully slow and boring.

Re: what makes cricket a good spectator sport

I'm not a big baseball fan really but not every batter goes to the plate with the intent of hitting a home run.

Re: what makes cricket a good spectator sport

The thing that's boring about baseball is that for long periods of time absolutely nothing is happening. You're really just waiting for a big hit. Or a hit at all.

Re: what makes cricket a good spectator sport

You have to appreciate pitching to enjoy baseball for sure.

Re: what makes cricket a good spectator sport

I enjoy seeing pitchers throw at the batters sometimes, might make me a bad person but hey it's better than seeing people getting walked.

They should change it up then. All these arcade baseball games are all about hitting.
