Ezri Dax is Best Dax.
I'm with you on "Take Me Out To the Holosuite," though. Maybe would have worked before the Dominion War, but not during. Also, baseball has no place.
I actually thought Take Me Out to the Holosuite was actually pretty well placed in the Dominion War.
It was a good team building and moral boosting event, which was really needed at that point, and gave the crew something else to think about for a while other than possible death and destruction. I think it was nice to see a complete change from the norm at that point, showed there was other things going on at the same time.
Not a baseball fan myself, but sport in general helps team building and seemed to work for the crew at this point.
