re: Great NYT Article re: Bats, Scoring at TDA Park; and not from LSU perspective


Regarding my comments on needing to speed up the game, let me make a more general comment.

This will offend the "purists", but baseball needs to evolve and adapt to become more watchable. Football and basketball (both college and pro) carefully review their rules and makes tweaks annually to make the game better, and it usually works.

With the exception of the ball change (hopefully coming) in college, I don't see baseball (either college or pro) making many changes to make the game more exciting, faster-paced, and enjoyable to watch.

While we're at it, how about limiting the number of timeouts a team gets. This would eliminate the ridiculous number of times a batter asks for time-out from the ump for no good reason, and the slow walks to the mound from the coach. There are already 17 long breaks between half-innings - we don't need any more. Let's speed up everything. Examples are making the batter stay in the box between pitches instead of walking five steps out just to re-adjust his hitting gloves for absolutely no good reason. Put a time clock on the pitchers. Allow intentional walks to be granted verbally w/o the need for 4 pitches. Allow one minute for a pitching change, including warm up pitches. There are so many things that can easily be done, not only to increase offensive production, but to speed up this ridiculously slow game.



NO!

Baseball is not meant to be nonstop action.
Its a game with spots of action here and there.
Been that way for +/- 200 years now.
You want nonstop action at all times, get yourself a new sport. Soccer, hockey, basketball.....whatever.

How come I've never seen an umpire make a batter stay in the box or seen a pitcher violate a pitch clock.

Because you must not really be paying attention.

quote:

Can the ump award a ball or a strike for a violation?

According to the MLB rule book, yes. A pitcher has 12 seconds from the time he has the ball in his possession and the batter is in the box and alert to the pitcher, as long as no one is on base.

quote:

As for the 1- minute pitching change, I'll stand behind my suggestion 100%.

The suggestion is stupid. You can't dictate how long the coach takes to get to the mound and how long the pitcher takes to get to the mound. But, there is a rule that a pitcher has 1 minute to throw his 8 warm up tosses between innings or when being called on in relief, except in the case of an injury.

You must not really pay attention to baseball very much.

Careful. Next, he'll want to limit the number of successive times a pitcher can pick to first. 3 max. Then you have to award 2nd to the runner. Baseball has to adapt.

Pickoffs should be removed from the game. I mean, have you ever seen one of these moves work?

You're right, 86, i don't pay attention- because baseball a damn boring sport!! It moves at a snail's pace and has very little action. Just don't see the need to waste 3+ hours watching nothing happen.

Please tell me when you've seen an umpire enforce a pitch clock violation. I have seen, on very rare occasions, an ump not allow a batter to call timeout to scratch his crotch.

It was built with the same dimensions as Rosenblatt. The same thing happened at the new Yankee Stadium. Change the location, even the stands, and it affects the flight of the ball. This was not intentional.

I always thought every team played their CWS games in the same park. Do they bring fences further out when LSU bats? The author of the article obviously has a biased agenda. The whining looks foolish.
