Look, I know, that's not very august company, and there are a lot of twits out there. But bear with me. Chris Chase is really bad.
First off, he hates baseball. Which is fine, and all (you know, if you hate America), and shouldn't really come up very often, because he writes for an NFL blog. But, since he is a jackwagon of the first water, he devotes some of his time to kicking the major leagues when they're down. It is true: the NFL is more popular than baseball. This is probably because most people are kind of dumb and have the attention span of a hyperactive adolescent goldfish. Like Chris Chase.
But what is worse is that he clearly does not understand baseball. At all. Which, again, would be fine, if he never talked about it. But, like the magnanimous horse's posterior he is, he condescends to share his thoughts on the subject. He thinks that baseball is better when the story line is Barry Bonds rather than when it is Lincecum vs Lee. I don't really have words to describe how I feel about that opinion, but if I did, a lot of them would be unprintable. And then there would be the yelling.
He also thinks that this World Series has been instantly forgettable. Because he does not have a soul and therefore does not understand about pitching. Sure, Lee got shelled in Game 1, and then there was that unfortunate 9-0 incident, but that is actually more intriguing than you'd have expected, because the Giants are not actually that good at offense. Those outcomes were unexpected. A little dispiriting, sure, but not dull. Or bad.
It's okay if you don't like baseball. It's okay if you like football better. But that does not mean that you need to dump on baseball and crow about what you see as its decline. Especially if you are an idiot and capable of astoundingly stupid leaps of logic.
