In response to mef429's comment:
moon, you should really join us in the gameday chat. lots of great posters show up and discuss the game. you'd like it.
Maybe it's changed since I last went there years ago, but there were too many posters making definitive judgements over one AB or even one pitch. One thing that really gets to me, is small sample size rants.
Anyways, I rarely watch the games live anymore. Time is too important to me to spend so much time waiting for the commercials to end. I tape the games and then fast forward through the commercials. It gives me more time with the family. I'm on central time here in Texas, so the games start during dinner.
Maybe on a west coast game, I'll try again.
