Most of us here love the game. But the fact is that baseball is losing its grip with the younger fans and I have to believe part of it is that the game is starting to slog along at a snails pace....for no good reason.
I believe the very FIRST thing he MUST do is to stop the nonsense of the batter stepping out after every pitch. And enforce the time elapsed between pitches. This will improve the flow of the game immensely. There is no reason for batters to step out, swing the bat, adjust the gloves and basically just stall. It wasn't all that long ago when a batter had to stay in the box for the total AB, except in very extreme situations. Was watching for this over the past week, both online and in person. It really is annoying watching the cat and mouse nonsense that goes on now.
Come on Commish....put a stop to it for the good of the game going forward.
Next, I would also limit the number of pitches a reliever throws coming into a game. Does he really need 8 throws? You can;t tell a manager how many pitchers he can use, but you sure can bet them into the game a lot faster.
None of the above delays adds one important thing to the enjoyment of the game.
I really hope to see some of this soon. Thoughts?
