Baseball is exciting compared to soccer, in my opinion.  And a true American sport.

Between the Men's WC last year, the Women's WC this year, the 2016 Copa America tourney being held in the US, (and potentially the 2022 WC), growing popularity of the EPL, growing popularity and expansion of the MLS, bringing older overseas stars to the MLS, shifting US demographics to ethnicities that watch soccer, etc etc etc

 

Among 12-24 year old in the US, Messi is their 4th favorite athlete and Ronaldo is their 7th. 

 

Or this graphic from a few years ago, showing Pro Soccer as the 2nd favorite sport among 12-24 year olds

Soccer is growing in popularity in this country, whether some want to admit it or not.

On the other hand Baseball is dying a slow death. The average fan is getting older and older as kids today become less interested in the sport. I find the sport incredibly boring, and look forward to it becoming much less relevant. Watching the same Top 10s all summer, a variation of maybe three different plays in baseball, gets incredibly old...
