Today's Poll: Should Minor League baseball games start with a runner on second in extra innings?
If you think games are too long, just don't show up until the third inning!
It would speed up the conclusion of the game and generate some excitement.
I'm beginning to believe, that somewhere there is an "Office of Baseball Stupidity". First they slow the game with disputed replays. Then they want to speed up the game with the intentional walk with no pitches. I've got an idea, eliminate the pitchers, and have the batters hit off a tee...no balls, no strikes, a hit or an out every time. Then like the kids t-shirt league, if a team goes up by 10 runs, its game over!! You'd be out of the ball park in about an hour...
The way their going, pretty soon there won't be a World Series, everybody will get a trophy.....
Only when they give participation trophies to the losing team.
Richard - I liked that rant, but you forgot the one where the All-star game is used to determine who has home field advantage for the World Series. Yeah... what could be a better way to determine who hosts 4 games than a bunch of players the league champion had no control over?
Good point Tim.....I knew there was something else....lol
