Actually, I’m not buying that. Help me out, Boston people.

I’ll stop writing this post when columnists stop making dumb arguments about baseball’s vitality.

I swear, I did not write this as a parody in an effort to give myself something new and crazy to rail against. Though I can understand if you believe otherwise.

Indeed, someone claimed it was not as good as it used to be a full year before the first professional team took the field.

I’d like to think we’ll be able to carry on. But I don’t know if we can. Dammit, I JUST DO NOT KNOW.

The first professional baseball team began play in the spring of 1869. People began lamenting its demise approximately fifteen minutes later. Here is why they are wrong.

Never mind that the dude has only been legally allowed inside a bar for about two years.

Usually those who say that baseball is dying conveniently forget that, in 1994, it actually was in trouble. So this is all very interesting.

This is so sad. It looked so healthy, too.

Major League Baseball: 1876-2014. Died after a long illness, contracted in around 1877 or so.

It’s awesome that USA-Portugal kicked butt in the ratings. It’s lame if people think that represents anything meaningful about baseball or other sports.

A story about Twitter engagement with televised sports shows that (a) half of all Twitter comments about TV shows are sports-related; but (b) baseball lags the other sports: One league that should be somewhat concerned, however, is Major League Baseball. In addition to the fourth-worst television ratings in history, the 2013 World Series failed to…

Every fall, like clockwork. These are becoming more ubiquitous than BSOHL stories during spring training: And of course totally vapid and ill-informed about the economics and nature of baseball. But what else is new? These clowns are doing nothing but channeling ancient nostalgia imported from a time when baseball was the only major sport and…

You may think you’re enjoying tonight’s game-163 between the Rays and Rangers. And it may seem exciting and everyone you know may be talking about it and the playoffs. But you’re just deluding yourself, everyone. Because the New York Times tells us that, once again, baseball is dying: … baseball seems simply to have fallen out…

We talk an awful lot around here about how silly the whole “baseball is dying” argument is, how those who make it are totally ignorant of the economics of the game, the nature of baseball fandom and the like. Today Grant Brisbee has a great post up explaining that in greater detail: But as a…

Saying that the NFL is more popular than baseball is both (a) true; and (b) old hat. It has become such an obvious thing that I didn’t even blink when I heard Frank DeFord say it for the ten millionth time just this morning, and most of what Frank DeFord says drives me kinda bonkers. But how…
