People who think baseball is boring just don’t get it but hey, that’s why they launch free t-shirts into the stands and hire grown men to race around the field in giant hot dog costumes because, you know, that’s entertainment. Me, I’m a sucker for any baseball game so it doesn’t have to be bases juiced in the bottom of the 9th to grab my attention because no matter what the situation, the conflict remains the same, “meat” out there on the hill is trying to sit down the punk at the plate…and there lies the beauty of the game. The batter is getting his long awaited chance and the pitcher is not giving in. It’s a drama that transcends the game – Willy Loman strikes out but Steve Jobs hits one out of the park and the Jeffersons, well…they’re up in the big leagues, gettin’ their turn at bat.
Long before Moneyball, there was still ERA and BA to measure success but it’s a different dynamic for pitchers and hitters. The pitcher is out there for the duration, defending his turf, for as long as he can, against a succession of challengers. The batter on the other hand has only a few moments to make something good happen. In fact, each at bat will only be 3 or 4 pitches and if a couple of those are “balls”, a batter might only see 1 fat pitch in an entire game, or none! A good hitter is the ultimate opportunist who is prepared to succeed under hostile conditions; he is ready for the best pitch he can get…do you see where we are headed here? There is nothing worse than wasted at-bats; poor swings at lousy pitches and quickly finding yourself back in the dugout wondering what just happened.
