I hate baseball because of the time factor.

And no Mongul has ever been in an All Star game.

Who is making you pay all this money for a product you have problems with?

Nobody. I still love the game of baseball enough to go to lots of games. I'd just prefer to see the players take care of their bodies as well as the pro athletes in other sports do.

How do you know baseball players aren't, though?

Their facebook posts, interview answers about game day rituals, seeing them eat in the dugout, and watching them drink at clubs during the season.

Do you honestly think MLB players as a whole are healthy eaters??

Compared to the general public, yeah.

That's a pretty low standard. I meant among athletes. Professional or otherwise.

Suffice to say, I think they are, considering they're elite level athletes and wouldn't be in the league or thrive in the league if they didn't take care of their physiques.

They take care of their bodies sufficient to perform their job duties.

Look at some football players. First blush is that there are a bunch of fat, out of shape slobs. Looks are deceiving. They maintain their bodies sufficient to their position on the field. And I certainly wouldn't walk up to any of these guys and call them "out of shape".

Besides, there are a whole bunch of people more important and influential than baseball players running around here who have poor diets, and use our hard earned money for their health care. But we seem more concerned with what athletes are putting into their bodies. Interesting.
