The responders to this thread are hereby appointed to the MLB Rules Committee. Clearly there is more talent here than I expected. Collectively we can make a difference. Going forward let’s present a single rule change per post with an explanation of its benefits. To demonstrate the format I propose:


The Intentional Strike Out and The Designated Whiffer

1. MLB has already eliminated four balls from the intentional walk.

2. Pitchers are subjected to removal based on pitch counts. Let’s give them a break, so they can pitch deeper into games.

3. Each team would be required to put a Designated Whiffer in their line up. After all we have had Designated Hitters for 50 years. The DW would not have to be a roster player, but perhaps a fan, who would only have to step out of the dugout and tip his cap. The fan would receive a bat for his effort.

4. In the proposed 6 lnniing game this would eliminate watching up to 8 or 9 strikeouts per game.

5. The length of games would be shortened, perhaps allowing a roll back of the 6 inning game to the traditional 9 innings in the future.

6. There is a precedent for such a rule as noted in #1 and #3 above.

This one should be unanimously adopted.
