Won't Miss #112 - Japanese baseball

Let me state for clarification purposes that I don't like baseball in any country. I always associate it with boredom. That being said, Japanese baseball takes boredom to a nadir. For starters, Japanese baseball players play like fretful old ladies. They're likely to bunt with one out and a runner on first instead of letting the batter swing and hoping for a big inning. You can predict what they're going to do because they all play by the same conservative book. What is worse though is that high school baseball is shown on television. If professional baseball is boring, you can imagine how watching a bunch of teenagers feels.

I won't miss the snooze-fest that is Japanese baseball.
