It doesn't matter I guess, I'm close to being done with baseball anyway. I'm still going to watch the rest of the games this year, but I don't know about next year. I don't know if I can stomach the new rules. Probably not. I was planning on going to Atlanta next season when the Orioles were there, but that has been canceled. Also considered going to spring training next year, that has been canceled.

Not crazy about the shift rule but the larger base rule could save some injuries. I definitely like that one.

If the Orioles field a good, exciting winning team next year, I can't believe you won't follow it.

I think bigger bases and limiting pitchers to two pickoff attempts is a bad idea. I really don't think bigger bases is about limiting injuries. I think they want to take baseball back to small ball because they think that's what younger fans want. It's like going back to pre Babe Ruth days. Stolen base records are going to be shattered. I don't like restricting the shift either. A manager should be able to position his fielders any way he wants to. I really hate the ghost runner thing also. Some of the most exciting games I have seen were extra inning games. Remember the Chris Davis game. Other issues I have is how horribly minor league players have been treated. Only because it became public did owners raise minor league pay. To make up for that, they eliminated many minor league teams, including our local team. They have actually discussed moving second base in, and moving the pitchers mound back. What a joke. What baseball needs is a commissioner that isn't a puppet of the owners. Manfra is nothing more than a spokesman for the owners. How about the committee that voted on the rules, six of the eleven voters are owners. That is a farce. They are changing the game and not for the good. It's 100% about money the greedy bastards.
