Spitting in baseball is a Major League problem.

While watching last night’s All-Star game game on FOX, the disgusting discharges emanating from eminent National and American League players seriously sullied my spectating enjoyment.

I know all of America agrees with me that baseball players spit way too much.

The only thing more annoying than Tim McCarver’s minutiae or Joe Buck’s babbling about boring baseball statistics is seeing the sunflower seeds and spittle splattering the baseball diamonds of an All-Star game.

Major League Baseball needs to establish a No Spitting Policy immediately. Look at other sports. You don’t see LeBron launching a loogie into the lane before attempting a free throw or Michael Phelps flinging phlegm into the pool before diving off the starting block in a big race.

Before losing its faithful, baseball fanbase to saliva-free sports, the Commissioner needs to halt the hurling of hawkers by expunging expectorating from baseball.

Straight Talk. No static.
