Kinda my thoughts to. Baseball to me is more of a chess match than the NFL or the NBA could ever dream of being.
Also just from my perpsective I would rather see a diving Eric Davis type catch in the outfield or Davey Concepcion acrobatic play at short than I would an Adam Dunn type bomb. Good defense to me is a thing of pure unadulterated beauty.
