"As baseball enters its quarter pole to the season, several deepening trends show the sport continues to evolve into more of a boom-or-bust game, with great yawning gaps of inaction punctuated by the quick dopamine hit of the home run." si.com/mlb/2019/05/14…
.@timdahlberg on reasons for #MLB attendance slide: "Take your pick, but here’s [another] possibility: Baseball is becoming hard to watch, and fans are registering their displeasure by staying home in increasing numbers." msn.com/en-us/sports/m…
"[#MLB's] current run-scoring environment is haven or hellscape, the preferred definition likely hinging on whether you throw a ball or swing a bat for a living." usatoday.com/story/sports/m…
Asked if he believed the balls were intentionally juiced by the league, Verlander said: "Yes. 100%... They know how to do it. It's not coincidence. I find it really hard to believe that [#MLB] owns Rawlings and just coincidentally the balls become juiced." espn.com/mlb/story/_/id…
.@JustinVerlander cont'd: "I don't think it's great -- that the true outcomes of strikeouts, homers and walks is best for the game. That's for somebody else to decide... if you're going to change something so dramatically, I think you need to make people aware." #MLB
