How To Make Baseball Better!

It occurred to me while watching the Florida Gators beat Nebraska in the College World Series that if I were the Major League Baseball commissioner one of the first things that I would do is change to aluminum bats. PING! College baseball is awesome because they use aluminum bats. PING! Can you imagine the ratings increase if baseball became all about offense as opposed to boring pitcher's duels? Need proof? Just look at the ratings of baseball as some slugger approaches the home run record. I bet more people can name the home run leader for each League than the pitcher with the lowest ERA. Low scores are boring! That is why soccer is such a mind-numbing snooze fest. 21-19 games are AWESOME! Can you imagine Barry Bonds going for his 190th home run... with 10 games left in the season!

Bud Selig... listen to me. Baseball would be far better off by ditching the purists and actually putting out a product that people would enjoy watching! And while you're at it... make the juice legal in baseball... actually you should encourage it. People are far more likely to watch a 240 pound Jason Giambi go for his 10th home run of the game than watching spindly Pedro Martinez pitch a shut out. Trust me on this one!

I'm surprised to hear you watching the CWS when for so long you've said that college baseball isn't a real sport! :) Or does this have something to do with UF's defeat of FSU?
