Just listen to this jugheaded dunce spew global warming bullshit during a baseball game.
People around the country only get treated to this a-hole’s play-by-play once in awhile. I had to endure mushmouth’s bleating every friggin’ day because he was a longtime Met’s announcer. And he was annoying beyond belief. He was his own instant replay. He would make the most obscure and mundane point and repeat it 5 times, sometimes insisting that the director replay a clip that was just out and out snore inducing and completely inane.
Now, as for this moron’s theory -
Baseball stadiums are, on average, much smaller than they were 50 years ago. There’s been a concerted effort by MLB to increase the excitement of the game by emphasizing the home run. Pitchers pitch faster, players are bigger, bat speed is quicker, the ball is livelier.
Try and follow along, Jughead. There are also domed stadiums that give batters many more opportunities to hit home runs in optimum conditions. There is also a tiny problem with steroids. Home runs were going to increase anyway, due to improved conditions and smaller parks, and superior human conditioning and the incentive of multimillion dollar paychecks for the most prolific power hitters, add in steroids and the only thing thinning is McCarver’s pate.
Move the fences back, slow down the average pitch speed, have the players play outdoors in the northeast in April, make them use heavier bats, and round up a bunch of 1960′s conditioned players to put on a show. You’ll see the air suddenly thicken, like a progressive’s skull.
