I hated when Jorge Posada and Andy Pettit would have like 10 mound meetings in the same inning. I think Posada had more distance covered in his career doing his slow ass jog up to the mound compared to running on bases.

No to all of that. Anyone who supports any of those proposals should go lie on the ground next to Terry Forster and his toy truck.

Let's remove all strategy from baseball.  Let's remove all of the fun intricacies of it.  Let's just have every game settled by a home run derby.

Also, 3 hours is still less than a football game, which is like 3:15 and getting longer because of the commercials.

I understand it's strategy, but changing pitchers every batter is such a pain to watch.

How often does that happen?  At most one inning a game where they go through two or maybe three pitchers.

Well my team doesn't score that much, so the games are always close--> more of these situations

This is cute, but imagine how much cooler it could have been if they'd made it a bobble-knee rather than a bobble-head.

Or they could have kept the bobble head and gone with the time he broke the bat over his head as the model. They probably ruled that out because he was a Royal then, though.

Score a run off Betances, then one off Miller to tie the game. Then Crawford's THIRD error of the game loses it for the Giants.

6 straight losses.

Playing non-AAA teams now?

I'm worried the Yankees might get a whiff of a wildcard spot and not sell like they should.

Still ahead of the Dodgers, even if it's only by three. Gotta give your boys credit. They're really hanging in there without Kershaw, who is hurt a lot worse than anyone's letting on. So it's just a matter of time.

Yay looks like the Yankees are unloading Chapman to the Cubs. Miller is better anyway.

That 3 headed monster sure looked good while it lasted though. If only the hitting was commensurate you'd have quite the team. Bet Rondon's pissed.
