Baseball season lasts too long. Just hard to sit through an entire game.
Be nice if they reduced the season to 100 games but $$$$$$$ that'll never happen.
My daughter's first Giants game last night.
She says baseball sucks.
Parental abuse bringing her to a Giant game
The San Francisco Giants enter the 2017 MLB All-Star week with a record of 34-56, giving them the most losses in franchise history at the break.
They limp into the four-day rest period on a four-game losing streak, 27 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers for first place in the National League West and 17.5 games behind the Colorado Rockies in the Wild Card chase. Only the Philadelphia Phillies have a worse record in all of baseball.
For San Francisco, it has been a combination of lack of offense and lack of run prevention. The Giants’ 354 runs scored are the third fewest in MLB and their 453 runs allowed and the third most in the NL.
The team will send catcher Buster Posey to start the MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday, but the remainder of the offense has been lethargic. Their 73 home runs are 10 fewer than the next closest team in all of baseball and they also rank dead last in slugging percentage (.372) and OPS (.674) as a club.
As for the pitching, the major storyline has been the loss of Madison Bumgarner, who has made just four starts all season before he suffered a Grade 2 shoulder sprain and rib injury during an off-day dirt biking accident. The team has also been without closer Mark Melancon for much of the year, while Johnny Cueto — an All-Star last year — has been slugged to the tune of a 4.51 ERA in the first half.
But those on the hill have been clubbed to the tune of a .276 opponent’s batting average, worst in the National League. The team has amassed just a single shutout all season, the only club in the NL to not have multiple instances during 2017.
As in a bunch of arrogant jackasses who no one likes except for bandwagoners?
Jealous bro? They've been selling out games long before this title run.
I just hate all the Warriors "fans" who say they've been there forever, when they really mean since the last decade. The Warriors attendance just happened to go up once the Kings' plummeted. Hmm, no bandwagoning there. Not only do I hate basketball, I pretty much hate all the loudmouth NBA fans.
Well I've been following them since before their championship in the 70's so I can't speak for all the fans but even when they were struggling, the fans were still supporting the team. They have a solid fan base in Oakland but many will be priced out once they move back to SF.
You know, it might just be quicker to give us a list of things that you don't hate...
you say the fans were supporting the team, but that's not true. Some fans were supporting the team, just like our Raiders.
I work with people who flat out say when the Warriors sucked they were Kings fans because they were embarrassed and now act like the best Warriors fans ever. Those people are a joke.
I absolutely love bad jokes, which is why you're one of my favourite posters.
You people just have shitty interests that I hate, what can I say?
They've sold out 230 consecutive games in a row and have averaged over 18,000 fans per game since the 2006-2007 season. Stop listening to your idiot co workers
I've always been a Warriors fan but have to admit I lost interest through so many years of sucking. I just pretty much gave up on the NBA. Then they made the playoffs with Baron Davis and I started paying attention again. I don't watch basketball or hockey until the playoffs though so if you don't make the playoffs I don't watch. I don't know if that makes me a bandwagoner or not, I guess I don't really care.
That doesn't dispute what I said though, no? I mean, there are great hardcore fans like you, and then there are the fairweather fans. I've no issue with the fans who have stuck it out the whole time, it's the ones who hop teams and pretend to be like fans like you.
In my opinion, no. You didn't start rooting for another team and buying their shit.
