    @TedFlintKansas

    Men want to have fun, women want to take fun out to the middle of the woods and shoot it in the head.

    I love baseball but I would shoot myself come August. Who wants to watch every game of the season?

    Says you must have an engaging fun personality. That leaves me out. And it's been 25 years since I've watched an MLB game from start to finish. Torturous boring. They'll find some 22 year old to do it unpaid.

    It not only would be bad in August, but think about watching a Pirates vs Nationals game in late August...ouch.

    That said, it would be unbelievable for a baseball fan for about a month or so.

    Re: this would be the most amazing job ever

    Watch every single game? Either they don't mean start to finish, they plan to let the person watch condensed games, or the person can watch multiple games at the same time. Otherwise, the sum total of MLB major league games (162 * 30 teams / 2) at 3 hours per game is roughly 304 straight days of baseball (24 hours per day).

    The season is only about 180 days long. Watching only one game at a time in real time, it'd take 4 people watching baseball 10 hours per day, 7 days a week to watch all the games in around 180 days.

    Maybe they have a video crew to cut the three hours or torture down to the three minutes of action for each game.

    I think MLB.tv posts condensed games where they only show the pitch (or pitches) in an at-bat where something happens -- ball in play, strikeout, stolen base, pickoff, etc. That would make this job manageable.
