Only if it speeds up the game. If game times are longer, it’s terrible.

You would think it would shorten it if anything. No more waiting for thr catcher to flash signals or change them with a runner on 2B.

I'd like the 10th inning to start as normal then add the runner for the 11th.

This is good. Keep the pitchers stress lower until the end of the month.

I kind of like that idea as a compromise. I love the history of the game, but actually really enjoy the shorter extra innings. another compromise i thought might make sense is starting the runner on 1b instead of 2b. But then again, the idea is to artificially shorten the game with this rule, so whats really the difference between starting on 1st base or 2nd base if the crowd against is likely "baseball purists" and will dislike it either way. 

 

 

Sorry, i didnt click the link - but the shift ends in 2022 right, or at least it's a modified shift? That could be huge for a guy like Yaz and his value.

This is interesting. I’ve probably caught between 20-25 balls during my time. Once , 4 consecutive games. I haven’t got one since pre Covid, but I have got them at Guaranteed Rate, Minneapolis and Wrigley, and the balls the Sox used were muddier by a pretty large margin.

I wonder if this had anything to do with Lorenzen's gripes and the Justin Upton HBP....
