MLB 2020

Recommended Posts

I know we always joke about certain rules driving us away from different sports, etc but I think this extra inning rule with an automatic running on second is where even I will draw the line.

I understand they’re going out of their way to avoid marathon games when they’re having to play 60 games in 66 days.  But if this actually becomes a permanent thing in a normal season, I’m out.  That’s not how baseball is supposed to be played.

Feels like you would have needed to read that to have the necessary context to make that post.

This is the one that did it for me:

I wish they / other leagues would embrace ties. Especially during covid.

I'd rather ties than changing the rules of the game to find a winner.

The game always finds a winner.  The rules were specifically implemented this year to avoid absurdly long games since players are already going to be gassed trying to play 60 games with barely any off days.

For what it’s worth, the minor league stats support it.  97% of extra inning games with the automatic runner rule end within two innings.

But it can’t be a thing next year if they play a full season.  It’s not baseball.

I'd honestly get used to the automatic runner rule pretty quickly. Lord knows my old ass barely make it to extra innings without falling asleep.

So you want to get rid of west coast games too, ya old coot?!

They can have their fun once I'm in bed. I'll catch the highlights in the morning.

I like suffering and i've never seen a live MLB game in my life... Are Orioles games broadcast live in some form or sense, because i'm interested in watching the team that I for some reason chose to support.

The Marlins already lost their starting catcher Jorge Alfaro to a positive test right before the season...and now starting outfielder Harold Ramirez, starting DH Garrett Cooper, and today's starting pitcher Jose Urena have all tested positive.

Reds' DH Matt Davidson tested positive and now today Mike Moustakas and Nick Senzel, while not testing positive as of yet, have been shut down due to reporting not feeling well.

This season may not even make it a week.

      So the infallible Astros lost. *insert Nelson haha jpg*
      Toronto and Milwaukee kicked The Stove off when the Brewers sent Chase Anderson to the snowy north. Good pick up for the Jays if I’m being honest.

      Pitchers and catchers report in a week, dozens of free agents are still on the market, and amidst that standoff come the news that the league and union are exploring some potentially drastic rule changes.
      Among the ideas being thrown around:

      -Universal DH
      -Only having one trade deadline (right now 7/31 is the regular trade deadline and 8/31 is for waiver trades) and moving that trade deadline up to before the All Star Break
      -26 man rosters, no more than 12 pitchers allowed
      -20 second pitch clock
      -Pitchers required to face a minimum of three batters
      -Lowering the mound
      -Changing draft order to discourage tanking
      -Allowing two-sport amateurs to immediately sign big league contracts (aka the Kyler Murray Rule)

      Could be some pretty interesting times.  I really don't want the universal DH but I've long accepted that it's inevitable so whatever.  I also like the idea of expanding the rosters by an extra player so teams can have a six man bench and it'll give jobs to specialists who otherwise wouldn't be able to make the league.  The three batter minimum for pitchers though is ridiculous, it'd basically end the career of lefty specialists all at the expense of making games faster.

      It's out! I'm downloading it now. Probably won't play it until the morning. Woo hoo!
      I'll be carrying over my guy from MLB 14, that I carried over to MLB 15, but I am interested in the whole new scouting thing, so I'll probably create a closer or someone new to play with. Fingers crossed they fixed the online, so I don't have to share-play with my chums like last year.
