I agree that a balanced game, high or low scoring, is the key to maintaining interest throughout the game. Both types of games can be fun, but as you and johnsonrallen have pointed out, a pitchers' duel is easier to enjoy when you're watching alone.
Good point. I think soccer and hockey can thrive with low-scoring games because the action is usually fast and furious with the possibility of a goal at any moment. Baseball needs more scoring (for casual fans) because it's a much slower game.
Yes, I agree. Although an occasional lopsided game in your team's favor can be fun -- especially if, like me, you root for the Mets, since those games are rare!
I definately agree with you there. I LOVED the couple times the Indians have beat the Yankees with some crazy score like 20-2.
