    You don't even see great infield defense anymore. It's so boring.

    Paver Basically a frustrated guy you would know that if you met me you would see it right away, it seems too easy to hit homeruns the bulls are going 499 to 500 feet

    So if the balls were not juiced and the HRs only barely cleared the outfield you would be happier? Would 375 feet HRs make you sleep better at night?

    Dude... so true. I watch a lot of baseball myself and the infield play is horrible. Between how they setup, the overall play and the lack of athleticism by these guys itís awful. They have mostly shifted into position to avoid any plays that require range. Total joke.

    Compared to last year, BA is down from .252 to .233 and ERA is down from 4.49 to 4.22; things are getting better.

    devers made some some gems last night at 3rd base against my yankees

    i do agree overall defense is lacking. they are saying it is hard for players, esp in outfield, to stay engaged without fans...

    The HR's do seem to be longer but they're less frequent; 27.61 AB/HR this year vs. 24.6 last year. That's an 11% drop.

    I'm not watching this year. I only find out what happened by reading box scores and highlights after the games.
