    That’s a season salary for a lot of bad mlb players.
    How many Ivy Keague graduates are among the best 750 people in the world in their field?

    OK, but expand the roster to 26.

    3) Keep the shift!!
    Yes, more outs!

    Also,DH for all.
    25 players after September 1. If MLB adopts some sort of “only dress 25 players”, I’m ok with that.

    But when Bruce Bochy, for example, adds 6 relievers to his bullpen and makes 3 to 4 pitching changes per inning for multiple innings, he does go a long way to making the game difficult to watch.

    Also the shift speeds up games since it mitigates the need for a LOOGY. What takes less time?

    1. Manager to walk out to mound and take ball from pitcher
    2. Lefty reliever to come in from bullpen
    3. Warm up pitches.
    4. Full at bat from lefty hitter
    5. Manager to remove LOOGY by repeating steps 1 through 3.

    Or

    1. 3 infielders to simultaneously walk about 40 feet each
    2. And then after the at bat, walk back.

    I’ll take the latter option...

    Agreed.

    I must admit I'm coming round to my earlier thought of making the games 7 innings.

    [/heresy]
    Priorities:
    1. Yankees lose
    2. Red Sox win

    "Relax kid, we've got 162 of these games to go."
