Major League Baseball is unhappy with Chase Field’s conditions, even to the point of possibly relocating the Diamondbacks.

Going into 2016, I had this crazy idea to start a baseball blog, and invited Lil’ Veezy to join me. A few days later, we’re pumping out posts like Three Reasons Why Miguel Cabrera is a Top 10 Pickup, Playoff Bound Team Spend Smart, and 2016 AL Rookie of the Year Candidates (which is our most popular post thus far).

Remember all those times you played ball on a lush green field, groomed to perfection. The grass was the perfect green color, recently cut. The infield was raked, and the chalk lines were newly placed.
Now, how would you feel if we took away all the grass, including the outfield? Wouldn’t look as good, right? Same thing with the chalk lines, gone. Want a raked field? You don’t have a rake.
You might be saying, “Well, at least we can still play”. But now I want to take away even more. Imagine that you don’t even have a glove, a bat, a ball. Can you play ball now? Without that equipment, you can’t.

So I found a post on Bleacher Report titled “20 Reasons Baseball Is the Worst” (there’s a surprise at the end, but you’ll have to read it to find out). So I’m going to post what the author said about each reason, and create a counter-argument for each. By the way, you can find the post HERE.
