I’ll admit it, I was furious when Rob Manfred removed the mandatory pitches for an intentional walk. I have expressed my opinion openly on some of his more recent suggestions about shortening game length as well. Some of his ideas just carry with them the impression that Manfred may not just dislike baseball, he might have never actually watched it.
Recently, the San Francisco Giants posted the following video of their 4D replay camera in action, and holy cats, if Manfred wants to make baseball more engaging he needs to get those cameras in every park immediately [Ed.: And let us share the dang GIFs].
Also: Bark at the Park every day. This idea is solid gold, MLB, yours for free.
Maybe you have better ideas though. Mandatory use of the bullpen cart, perhaps? A Tinder-like app that will allow folks to select the reliever of their choice by popular vote? Dunk tanks for those who do poorly in an inning. Don’t ask me about logistics here, that’s for the numbers guys. I just want your ideas!
So head over to the FanPost section, select “New FanPost” on the left, and give me your smartest, craziest, most realistic, or most over the top ideas about how to fix baseball.
