MLB Rule Changes for 2021 Under Discussion


Recommended Posts


Do they really think they'll have another 2-3 month season? I can't imagine any more than a few weeks of delays if any at all. No reason for the 7 inning double headers or the extra innings baserunner unless it's like the 13th inning or later.

They anticipate starting on time and playing 162 but they also think they will run into postponements along the way so they want to have those rules in place.

Ah ok this does make sense.

I'm alright with the universal DH (though I don't prefer it - but make the damn decision already), and I like the expanded playoff.

No to the 7-inning double-header & Texas tiebreaker.  Those do nothing improve the game, or protect against potential virus exposure.  They only shorten the games.

These guys get paid a healthy sum to play a game - challeges arise during the season like fatigue, injuries, etc.  Deal with it.  That's what you're paid to do.

 

If they want to do expanded rosters, or maybe some kind of tweaking to the 'option' rules, I'd be 100% in favor.
