MLB is reportedly considering starting extra innings with a runner on second base

This won't get approved. This is a horrible idea. This is the first pace of play idea that literally kills the game itself and isn't just about people doing things at a faster pace. This rule isn't about pace, it's about making things easier. It's arguably cheating. This can even lead to something down the line like start every inning with a runner on to create more runs scored etc etc.

Supposedly its only for the developmental leagues in A ball- since they are games and teams that wins/losses do not matter but development is the only purpose.

 

They want to end those games quicker and focus on the players not the outcomes. The idea is this will make sure players do not get injured or overworked and mess with travel times.

Manfred's next rule is "the outfielder can hold the ball up in the air and the runners have to stop at the base they are at."

 

Isn't that the the prerequisite for Tagging Up? The outfielder has to hold the ball and catch it and the runners have to stop at the base they are at before they can test their luck?

 

Isn't that what pitchers do when they call time?

 

Isn't this a dumb fucking post......

 

deez nuts.

 

Got em'.

this wont ever reach MLB.

 

fun concept to try out and see how it doesnt work, so thats cool.

 

I like MLB thinking outside the box and thinking about things like this, even if they are dumb.

 

Dont know til you present and try them in all honesty.  

 

Manfred is great.

I don't see what you would learn from "trying" this aside from what we already know.
