Baseball is BETTER because:

1) You get to sit outdoors to enjoy a professional game.
2) The food tastes better.
3) More players means more fun at all ages!
4) Baseball can be played in any open space, basketball needs a court.
5) In baseball, you rarely have to wipe off someone else's sweat. In basketball, they probably drink each others p*ss, just to be macho.
6) While watching baseball, you don't have to listen to all those DAMNED squeeky shoes; eek, eekeek, eek, eekeek... Cripes! It sounds like a bunch of rats having a disco party.

OK REFUTAL
-
1)Sitting outdoors can cause lots of problems like if it rains you get wet plus if it does not rain its to hot while in a basketball stadium you get cooled of by an aircon
2)I dont think the food is a reason why baseball is better than basketball cause They can sell hotdogs in a basketball stadium if they want
3)More players meaning more time to play that game meaning its more boring cause it takes forever for the game to finish so meaning kids and old people would fall asleep as has happened many time before
4) Basketball can be played outdoors to and is easier to organize all you need is ball while in baseball you need 3 things to play the game properly plus you cant play it in any open sport since you need huge space to play it BASKETBALL can be played with a ball and a basket with a hole
5)In basketball you dont wipe off another man's sweat they wipe it themselves and they drink gatorade not there piss
6)Unless those squeeky shoes are as loud as the crowd it aint a problem

The problem with your whole argument is you got it from answers.com meaning anybody who loves baseball or is biased against Basketball could have posted it and even though I was still able to refute it since it was not your own argument

10 REASONS WHY BASKETBALL IS BETTER THAN BASEBALL
1)Basketball can be played indoors with an airconditioned stadium meaning no sweating while in baseball again the weather affects everything if it rains they get wet if it does not rain they sweat because of the sun
2)Basketball games do not take forever to play a normal Nba game can last for 1 hour and a college basketball game can last for a little less than 2.5 hours while a baseball game lasts 3.5 hours and as any baseball fan who watches a game at home it takes longer than that maybe 4-5 hours which means you can whatch a whole basketball game and be more productive while in a baaseball game its takes up almost half of your whole day thus meaning more obesse people.
3)Basketball games are easier to organize like in a street meaning it can be played anywhere with a ring at anytime while in baseball the normal thing you can do is play catch only meaning Basketball being a better sport is played more
4)Basketball is an olympic sport while baseball is not Baseball was an Olympic sport for a brief period of time, from 1992 until 2008, but it has been eliminated as an Olympic sport for the 2012 games. Reasons for eliminating baseball stem primarily from baseball not being popular worldwide meaning Basketball is a better sport.
5)Basketball has cheerleaders baseball has none hot girls in hot outfits no brainer would you rather see men swinging bats or Women swiging that hump I am guessing Women
6)Basketballl has an alleyoop this move makes the whole stadium scream in a frenzy and making the sport more exicting dont worry baseball fans you have the bunt and the intentional walk to back you up right.
7)Basketball is an action pack game In basketball every minute is a battle for the ball every minute is an interesting outcome while in baseball there are moments when nothing happens and the whole stadium keeps quite as there star gets striked out while in Basketball no matter what there will always be a good game baseball is exicting dont get me wrong but Basketball is much more than that.
8)Basketball ahs the CELTIC VS LAKER RIVALRY I know baseball has some pretty good rivalries – like Yankees / Red Sox and Dodgers / Giants – but these just don’t compare to the heated, stoic rivalry of Celtics / Lakers. These two teams, the most storied franchises in all basketball, have collided 12 times in the NBA finals. The most recent was just this past year, with the Lakers winning a seven game series in 2010. Prior to that, the Celtics won a 4-2 victory in 2008.The Celtics currently lead in total championships with 17 to the Lakers’ 16. Together, the two teams’ 33 championships account for more than half of the 64 championships in NBA history.
9)March month madness Sure, October is a great month for baseball – but the few games you actually get to watch just can’t touch the frenzy that is NCAA March Madness.
10)Basketball has more athletic and action packed players and are more exciting and fun to watch Basketball has, arguably, the most athletic and well-known athlete of all time… Michael Jordan. There are now and have been many exciting athletes in basketball… Lebron James, Dr. J, Kobe Bryant, Dominique Wilkins, Kevin Durant – the list goes on and on. Sure, baseball has some great names too, no doubt… Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Joe Dimagio, Willie Mays, and more. But, modern day baseball players are more known for steroid use than being an “athlete.” (Plus, I don’t think you can compare the overall athletic ability of say Lebron James to Alex Rodriguez – now would you?)
