Re: What annoys you most?
Cell phones in movie theaters.
Asking for extra butter and getting less.
Buying a beer at a ballpark when you could have had a 6-pack at home for less.
Realizing that it's better to be at the game after you buy the 6-pack.
Watching the 6-pack gain on you.
Three year passes on player performance due to injury, but bat-by-bat indictments of young players.
Houston's infactuation with Brad Ausmus.
Pitchers who get ahead 0-2 and then Walk the guy.
Where's my dang butter on this stinking popcorn???? Arrrrrrrrghhhhh!
When my wife calls me upstairs to tell me something she could have come downstairs to relay. Communication should not be an endurance sport.
Players who take all day to lollygag to the Outfield. Ditto with home run trots (excusing Dave Parker of course).
"Tweaks" that turn into strains that turn into sprains that turn into tears.
People on the interstate who mistake speed zone minimums for maximums.
Kids who bump into you in a mall who feel that the words "excuse me" are optional.
Parents who raised aforementioned kids.
The 7th inning stretch. If I'd have wanted to stretch, I'd have taken up yoga. Play some damn baseball.
Todd Van Poppel.
The need to build a ballpark to generate the revenue to compete and then taking an operating loss while cutting payroll.
"The problem with strikeouts isn't that they hurt your team, it's that they hurt your feelings..." --Rob Neyer
"The single most important thing for a hitter is to get a good pitch to hit. A good hitter can hit a pitch that’s over the plate three times better than a great hitter with a ball in a tough spot.”
