I haven't watched a game yet but heard the Red Sox are doing horrible this year!

They have started off bad but they normally start out slow. They have been winning more often lately so will see.

MLB dealt the Sox a terrible hand.  They broke spring training and immediately went on a 11 game western road trip.  They were the last AL team to play at home. So go on the road for 2 weeks after being on the road for 6 weeks of spring training.  That schedule was a recipe for failure.  Now they are getting it together, they went over .500 for  the first time all year yesterday.  I look for them to be right there with the Yanks and Rays in the next few weeks.  MLB should be ashamed.  No team should wait until game 12 for the home opener.

I agree Fully. You have to wonder after the winning streak they had last yer if they were hoping to curve that. If it as an underdog team that did it its great marketing but if its the Sox , Yankees, etc it doesn't have the same national attention to the franchise.

I saw something online the other day about one of the guys robbing a home run in extra innings to help them.  There are times I wished I watched sports on a regular basis, but when I try to watch I get bored watching it on TV then wander off doing other things hahaha  In person is the way to go, but then again some fo these games cost crazy money to go!

I save time by almost never watching live.  I DVR the game and fast forward during commercials, pitching changes, and other delays.  I probably miss some of the commentary but I know the game well enough to not really need it.  Using this approach a 3 hr game is watched in about 90 mins.

That works as long as you don't hear about the outcome before you watch it...

^It takes discipline to stay off websites and social media until you finish watching.  Also a strip of cardboard taped to the bottom of the screen hides the crawl.

I get that some games can be very boring and it is better in person. Sadly baseball games have gotten longer over the last decade.
