Thresholds could be adjusted. Watching a 3 1/2 hour game with 35 strikeouts and 2 or 3 dingers does not float my boat.

If you thought I was deadly serious in my post, you are incorrect.

I like history and records too, but at the current rate the league batting averages could be headed for .200 or less in a few years. The complete game is already gone. 20 game winners, what's that? Ball in play action reduced. The Shift - ugh. Can anyone name all the pitchers on their favorite team's roster?
