On Tuesday, New York Yankees lefty Nestor Cortes fell victim to one of the new MLB rules to speed up the game. Watch as he's issued an automatic ball for not establishing eye contact with the batter before pitching...

So, what happens to the batter if he doesn't make eye contact with the pitcher?

What next? The pitcher is gonna have to throw the batter a kiss, and then ask for permission?

ridiculous. Pitcher should be allowed to pitch whenever he's ready. It's the batter's responsibility to be ready at all times. Speed the damn game up!!

Nobody watches MLB anymore anyway, so let’s piss off the few remaining fans by adding and enforcing some idiotic rule changes. LOL!

It appears the umpire wasn't ready for the pitch. His arse shouldn't be behind the plate. Gets a bad grade instantly!

The umpire enforces the rules, they don’t make them. Complain to the competition committee and owners.

I BEG you to go umpire, even little league, for a year where you’re getting paid, then come back and post garbage like this.

I don't know man, if you are in the box you have to be ready. So what if the batter spends 8 seconds to get ready, the pitcher cant pitch till the batter looks at him. Then the pitcher gets put on the clock because of a slow batter in the box.

Guy keeps his head down excessively long, feels like college defenses laying on ball carrier of a HUNH offensive. I thought MLB wanted to speed the game up.
