The worst part about baseball is that it's not really the worst. Despite the many, many, many faults I've laid out, it's still kind of great.
I love the experience of going to a game, being outside and drinking a cold beer on a hot day with baseball basically being a nice background.
I love the unwritten rules and nobody pitchers like Dallas Braden screaming at A-Rod for breaking one of them and crossing his mound.
I love all the weird stuff baseball players do to amuse themselves during the long games and the long season.
I love an underdog team like the A's putting together a historic run at the end of last season, even though they ultimately came up short.
So here's to another season of baseball being the worst...and me still watching.
