Baseball is committing suicide.

I'm watching the Yankee game and also some Wimbledon tennis matches. Baseball is a team game and tennis is for individuals. Tennis players have personal coaches. Baseball has team coaches during games, who appear far too often, especially the coach for the pitchers who are performing something that's pretty similar to what tennis players do, standing there all by themselves.

But tennis coaches are forbidden to not even flash signs during a match much less speak to a player, not even between games or sets when the players are resting.

Eliminate all on field coaching during baseball games and get those silly base coaches the heck off the field. Football and basketball players do not have coaches on the playing areas. Baseball is beyond ridiculous.

And the batters are now walking away from the plate between pitches again. Remember way back to the beginning of the 2015 season when new commissioner Manfred, the A-Rod Slayer, made his wimpy attempt to eliminate the dreaded dead time between pitches? It never really happened and the pace of play is as bad as ever.

Baseball is a dying sport because it is committing suicide.
