As if we needed more reasons to dislike the way Major League Baseball is set up an played today, the league announced they have did away with the 4-pitch intentional walk in lieu of a simple managers' nod to the umpire to award the batter first base. WRONG! The game needs to be sped up no doubt, but not like this. We will never see the infamous Eephus pitch again. Stupid. They also changed the replay rule to limit to 2 minutes. Why? Replay has ruined football, is ruining hockey, and now baseball as well. They should have two sets of stats then -an old time when the games were played based on human judgments, and now with reversals due to TV replays. Better yet do away altogether and that will speed up the games as well. Bad enough they have to replay EVERY G-DAM football play 3/4 times as it is. To speed up baseball, they need to make it so the batter cannot call time to step out of the box. Once set, he is in there for his full at bat. Total BS...
