I’m not sure the modern day fan is built to handle the sport of baseball. As we move increasingly toward a society where instant gratification is the norm and little matters beyond the moment, it’s hard to wrangle the perspective required for a 162 game season that begins in April and trudges slowly forward (they don’t call ‘em the dog days for nothin’) through a six month season. We see three games of baseball and conclusions are already being drawn about the value — or lack there of — of a player or what it is they are failing to do in this momentously small sample size that we are grumpily extrapolating into the infinite beyond.
