My only real problem with any of it is the umps will abuse it like they do with the hand check stuff, and they already all hate MadBum

The pitch clock is great. These rules are getting us back to the way the game used to be played. But all the boomers are up in arms cause they're convinced that games have always lasted 3+ hours.

Jayson Stark says there were 69 violations in 35 games through Sunday, or 1.97 per game. That was the case in Triple-A last year, and a month into the season, the players cut it down to one violation every other game.
Yep lots of violations now but it'll get better, love the clock.

Edit: just more info, all from Axisa:

Quote:
Through Sunday, the league-wide average time of game was 2:39. It was 3:01 last spring. The 22-minute improvement is consistent with the 21-minute improvement they saw in Triple-A last year. Spring Training time of game data goes back to 2006. It was 2:40 that year, the lowest on record. The pitch clock has reversed 17 years of the game slowing down.

If someone averaged 45 steals a year for 30 years they still wouldn’t have as many in their career as Rickey Henderson. Think about that shit.

Roto keeper league, trying to determine my last keeper.

Definitely keeping Tatis, Soto, and Ohtani.

99% sure I'm keeping Franco as my 4th

For my 5th it comes down to Freddie Freeman or Corbin Burnes. I want to keep Burnes but Freeman seems like the surer thing, and I'm less inclined to keep a pitcher just to keep a pitcher with Ohtani

This is unreal. Talk about taking a blowtorch to your career.

I mean, the ump wouldn’t have been in the wrong to eject the batter after the way he acted after strike 2, but to do this instead was just bonkers. Bro you’re an umpire, everyone hates you regardless, you gotta have a thick skin.

In Little League once, the umpire no showed so the opposing manager did it and I was pitching that day so I got fucked over by the strike zone all day. Fun times.

I'm sure you had no command or control.

Really my entire thing was excellent command. I just had issues with getting my breaking pitches to break right and then I tore my elbow so

I feel like the WBC should happen way more frequently than it does.

Whose bright idea was it to put PR and DR in the same pool?
