    Was v surprised to hear Bryce admit that he "never heard from the Yankees".

    SMH at the 3 batter minimum. There will be some lefty specialist out of work. :lol::smh:

    Merrill Kelly. Could be this years Mikolas.

    Adalberto Mondesí could be a later round grab too.

    Going to be more runs and shorter games when that 3 batter minimum is enforced. I predict higher AVG and OPS obviously because the rule favors hitters.

    I don’t care for the 3 batter minimum but 4 pitchers in 1 inning is also ridiculous

    :lol: MERICA dont like their game being toyed with

    Love all the rule changes. Rosters are a mess to try and grasp by September with every teams 100 call ups. Trade deadline - you only needed one. 3 batter minimum I like- enough of the shenanigans- 3 or 4 pitching changes per inning is corny af.

    I really hope they don't ban the shift.

    Banning the shift is dumb, learn how to hit the opposite way

    It’s coming. Offense brings in the “casual” fan. They don’t wanna see 1-0 games. And the shift is definitely cutting down offense

    New MLB rules

    Bruh @ new pitching rule. A pitcher must face 3 or more batters in an inning before they get subbed

    The “end of the half inning” part helps, if you’re lucky to have the lineup come around that matches your relief pitcher game plan

    Still don’t like the rule. Speed up pitching changes if anything.

    What if the pitcher comes in and is getting roped? He’s forced to get 3 outs still? :lol:

    Edit never mind I’m an idiot.

    I’m curious now if intentional walks or faking an injury :lol: would be a sound strategy to get around the minimum

    Isn't that what the two infielders on each side of second is about?
     
  24. Same. And I'm fine with a pitcher coming in to face just one specific better, just not when they do it constantly. I would have much more preferred a limit on how many pitchers you could use. The rule could have been creative in a good way too.

    :rofl:

    Bro, thank you for not deleting this post. I'm dyin'. I really needed that laugh. :lol:
     
  25. I punt SB in categories leagues but man's gonna steal 55-60 bags easy this year. Kid nice with the glove too.
