    I like the ideas. There was a wild pitch on an intentional walk that scored a run in the last couple weeks.
    They do need to speed up the pace.

    I hear Detroit is petitioning to ban the 8th inning.

    no...none of those are any good..

    put up a game clock for 2.5 hours.

    a total of 3 time outs per side..no more, and only the manager can call time out.

    time outs can only last 2 minutes, no more

    when the game clock ends at 2.5 hours, the team ahead wins, no matter the inning.

    in the event of a tie, one inning in duration of 20 minutes only

    still no score to break the tie..??

    game ends in a tie.....


    whiz-bang-wow........game over, go home, save money on parking.....

    With your rules, once you get a lead, can you imagine all of the nut scratching there would be trying to delay and hold on to the lead?LOL

    Right, go to Tee-Ball rules for grown men.... That will make it more interesting.. I love baseball.. I loved playing it.. That's why I can't sit there and watch it... I would rather watch grass grow.. You can't speed up, a slow sport.... But I'm ADHD, so that might explain a lot...

    Usually when I'm watching a game, I lay on the couch and drift in and out of consciousness. It's a great time to catch up on my sleep. If I hear an announcer scream out loud I come back to consciousness to see what happened.

    I bet most people complaining about the length of games are American league fans.
    Baseball is a chess game managed by geniuses.
    Somethings take a minute to figure out.
    E=mc2 didn't have a 2 hour clock on it.
