An outlandish idea to make MLB much more watchable
Allow batting lineups to change every inning. In other words, players can bat in any order every single inning, as determined by the manager.


Pros:

- More scoring (everyone likes more scoring)

- More at-bats for star players (I wanna watch Stanton, Trout, and Judge bat, not scrubs)

- Pitchers can bat 9th every inning so they only get plate appearances when a team bats around (no one wants to watch pitchers bat anyway)

- Higher level of competence required of managers (making them more closely manage offensive strategy and not just pitching, defense and situational base-running)

- Games can be shortened to 7 innings to offset longer duration causes by more scoring









Cons:

- Will never happen.

So the same 3 guys bat every inning? Sounds miserable

Just create a 7 man batting order. Eliminate the DH and make 7 fielders bat.

I've seen some stupid suggestions on this website but I think this may top them all.

So my Astros could just have Springer, Altuve and Correa lead off every inning?

Gizmoflak, with all due respect, and remember I'm sayin' it with all due respect, that idea ain't worth a velvet painting of a whale and a dolphin gettin' it on.

It is fine the way it is. No reason to change for the SJW crowd.

That’s would turn the MLB into the NBA with trios of superstars trying to combine together and basically dictating every move their team makes.

No thank you

Why does everyone say this?

The best games I've ever seen have been WS pitching duels...where bunting the guy over or stealing a base to get in scoring position is a big play.

Gibson's Game 1 of the 1988 WS was 5-4...and 4 of those runs came on 1 swing of the bat by Canseco.

Game 7 of the 1991 WS was 4-3...with a pitching duel between Jack Morris and Smoltz.

Yeah totally makes sense, lets also remove the irrelevant players in the NBA and see more two on two.... or some 5 of 5 in the NFL
