Grant's Rant: 6-11-21 Major League Baseball's got a pitching problem.

IF YOU DON'T LIKE THAT WITH GRANT NAPEAR
4min

Major League Baseball (MLB) is in trouble.  The games are b-o-r-i-n-g.  Who wants to watch a sport where the very essence of the game, the ball, is not in play?  NOBODY!!!  I can't even get thru two innings without turning it off.  And now the admission is that the pitchers, up to 90% of them, are using a foreign substance to help the ball stick to their fingers thus increasing spin rate.  Spin rate impacts the ability of the batter to hit the ball.  So, no hits, no balls in play thus boring baseball.  Now, if you're caught cheating you get a 10 game suspension.  With pay!!!  Are you kidding me?  That's a paid leave, not a punishment.  We're going to see pitchers take the penalty and rest up for another day.  What is wrong with this picture?  My perspective and more in today's rant.
