Matt Williams agrees with Anthony Rendon: baseball can be boring
Yesterday Nats’ infielder Anthony Rendon made a lot of people smile when he said “I don’t watch baseball — it’s too long and boring.” Today his manager was on 106.7 The Fan in Washington and talked about those comments. Short version: he gets it:
I can appreciate that. My brother worked at In-N-Out Burger for seven or eight years and after a year or two of it he never wanted the stuff. While I don’t get tired of baseball after reading and writing about it, I do find myself way less likely to read for pleasure in the evenings than I used to because I just read all damn day. If you get jacked up to play baseball all the time and spend all of your active hours thinking about it and doing it, I can totally see not having much patience for it in your free time.
