Just curious about how you all feel about the new tied game rule of starting a runner on 2nd base in the 10th inning

I guess they did it to speed up the game
They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

Its a crime, and I see why this was instituted.

For now, just this season.  Would need to be part of any future CB arrangement.  I know players and umps like it.  Not sure if pitchers are big supporters.

Whatever they say, it will be forever.

All the changes are supposed to be just for this year, but many believe at least some will remain, like the DH in both leagues.

DH in both leagues is a lock.

As a not really fan, I like all the changes. The season is the right length. I don't need the pitcher to hit. I like something extra in overtime. Hell I am digging the 7 inning games.

So Trevor Bauer throws a seven inning complete game shutout. Want to see the purists talk about that.

This is as good a place to put this as any. In my daughter’s softball game today the batter hit a pop up in the infield. The pitcher came off the mound to field it.  The batter and pitcher collided right in the first base line and the ball rolled foul without anyone touching it.

You make the call.
