    Does Baseball Even Exist?

    I know that for many people, baseball is a game that you know and love. But does it even exist? In my opinion, a random number generator is used to calculate statistics, assigning each stat a number from one to infinity. Certain players are given a higher base number, insuring that they will have a higher stat total for the season (i.e. Ruth in homers, Ichiro in hits, ect.). Thus there is no need for a game to be played, since the outcome of every game ever has been decided long before it is scheduled to be "played". This is truely something to ponder. *I then proceed to crack open a beer, get hammered out of my mind, and watch the Yankees CRUSH the Red Sox, 3-2, in a hard-fought 15-inning game*

    Baseball is a world within the world within the world. It is like the cosmos.

    It exists, but it's simply only a computer program designed by a nerd.

    Is this like listening to the architect at the end in Matrix Reloaded? Because if it is, I am definitely not cool with that!

    I wish it was rigged for one year only, and the cubs win the world series. Although I'm sure another player would ruin a easy double play and people will blame it on a hot dog vendor.

    Major flaw in your theory is that if you've ever watched a baseball game you know its not that easy.

    The other flaw in your argument is LeBron James.
