1. In the NL the pitcher bats and in the AL he doesn't? What other sport in the world has shit like that? PICK ON RULE!

2. Ball park walls are all different distances from the plate. It would be pretty stupid go to Oakland and play on an 80 yard field then go to Denver for a game on a 60 yard field. Standardize the damn distance.

3. The intentonal walk needs to be abolished. Being allowed to run away from your opponent is total BS and gay. At least make the pitcher throw the ball where it can be hit.

4. Pitching changes need to some type of limit. 2 per game or 3 would probably be best. I would say after 3 you can change. Then after 7 but none after that.

I had a crazy idea for Instant Reply to be added to Baseball.

Give the Managers a Yellow Flag just like they do in football. You get 3 chances per game to throw the flag on ANY umpire call. Doesn't matter what it is since it could be even Strikes and Balls if you want.

But if you are shown to be wrong that means if you are at Bat, you get an instant Out. If you are in the field the team at bat gets another Out or gets an Out removed.

If your team is at bat and you throw a flag on a called 3rd strike and it shows you are wrong then there are 2 outs recorded. If this goes over the 3rd out of an inning then the opposing team gets an extra out for their turn at bat.

Once the flag is thrown then you don't get any extra flags you only get the 3 chances.

I think that this would assist in some really bad missed calls but could also have more strategy added to the game. Do you throw the flag and risk getting another out killing your inning or allowing the other teams inning to keep on going?

This removes the Managers coming out and arguing with the umpires over some lame ass call. If you don't like the call and think the ump is wrong, throw the flag or sit down and shut up and let the game keep playing.

This Human Element excuse is getting old and baseball needs to start embracing technology since everyone and their grandmother can see an instant replay and see if a person is safe or not.

Of these suggestions, the one with the best merit is pitching changes. Coming in to face one hitter is slowing down the game to a standstill. Tony LaRussa was most guilty of that practice. One compromise would be to say if a pitcher is replaced after pitching to less than 3 batters in the same inning, his replacement does not get warm up pitches from the mound and needs to be in position to pitch within 1 minute.

Being more a traditionalist, I say do away with the DH. The knee jerk reaction in all sports is to add offense to the game.

1. I agree that pitchers killing the possibility of a big inning by picking up a bat sucks. This is why the A.L. is better. I always find it funny when people who complain baseball is boring think pitchers should bat in the A.L which cuts down on offense/scoring in general, thereby making the game more "boring."

2. Well that's just dumb.

3. Well that's just dumb. In football the QB is allowed to get rid of the ball outside the pocket to "run away from the opponent." Pretty much the same thing.

4. It's called strategy. If you hate it keep not watching baseball.

Baseball what it is...no reason to go around changing it I guess. Plenty of people like it as is...which is cool.

One thing that bothers me with baseball is the lack of team identity. Guys come and go so casually its just like a bunch of mercenaries that happen to be wearing a certain hat at any given moment.

To put it in perspective...to make a serious playoff run it is pretty much expected that you need to add to or change your team.

Just seems like silliness to me.

I also think the amount of games played makes each game less compelling. Win or lose? No big deal there are about a million more you will get them next time.

The team at bat gets a blitzer that can move any where outside the base path between 1st and 3rd. He is free to blitz the pitcher any time the the batter is in the box.

Pitchers can throw the ball at batters outside the box. If the pitcher hits the batter, he is removed from the game and the team has to play short handed. If the pitcher misses, he has to put chicken liver in his pocket.

3 pitbulls fed only chicken livers since birth roam the field during the game.

The team at bat is allowed to have an additional player in the field, called the obfusicator. This player is allowed to wear a glove and field the ball. If he fields the ball he may throw it in any direction. If he is knocked to the ground after fielding the ball and while the ball is within 100 feet of him, he has to put a chicken liver in his pocket. A team cannot win without at least one successful touch by the obfusicator.

Fielders can "sweep the leg" of a base runner between 3rd and home as long as the move is below the knee.

During the 7th inning stretch, the managers bare fist fight during "take me out to the ball game". Hits are recorded by electronic sensors. If a manger loses, his team has to put chicken livers in their pockets, but may carry bats anywhere on the field to ward off the pitbulls.

The phantom 2nd base rule is removed, and 2nd base is greased.

Signs of change all the time. A simple USMNT friendly drew much better tv ratings than the Stanley Cup. Over capacity crowds right in the middle of the Midwest for the MLS for an team who has a gameday experience tailored to the actual game.

The DH definitely needs to go! Why should a pitcher be allowed to hit a batter on purpose and then not have to get in the batters box himself? If you want to throw a baseball at someones head you better have balls enough to pick up a bat and take your lumps in the batters box! Having pitchers hit also gives the manager more decisions to make and adds strategy to the game. Baseball is the only game that doesn't have a clock attatched to it and that is what makes it special. It's also the only game where the defense controls the ball. If you don't like the way it was originally designed then you better watch a different sport but changing it isn't acceptable.

1. Getting hit by a pitch counts as a strike.

2. Base runners must be tagged to be out, and they get a lead blocker.

3. No fences. Chase the ball until you reach it.

4. Players may round the bases in either direction.

5. Fielders may physically pull base runners off bases (though base runners still have their lead blockers).

6. On pop flies, the batter and the player on deck can run onto the field and interfere with fielders.

7. At home base, players may choose to return to dugout or keep running back to first (or third, if they so choose). At home base, they are allowed to pick up a spray bottle of seltzer.

8. The first 500 fans are allowed to sit in the outfield at any location they wish.

9. Teams may employ a dog as an outfielder, and the dog gets a designated hitter.

10. Every tenth ball that is used will be a whiffleball.

Coming right up in 2013, those critics will be delighted to know, nearly everything about interleague play is about to change. And that has to be a good thing. Doesn't it?

The impetus for that change will be baseball's most dramatic realignment in history -- a realignment that will break this sport into two leagues with an odd number of teams (15) in each. And that means, for the rest of time -- or at least until some future commissioner has a brighter idea -- that interleague play will no longer be just a three-week subplot in the season.

Starting next year, from Opening Day onward, it's about to become an every-day occurrence. Literally. And that, frankly, has made a lot of people in the sport way more nervous about what's coming than they ought to be.

Worlds most popular sport *shrug*

I don't have a problem with baseball but just added a few thoughts on it. You know who enjoys baseball less than I do? The generation younger than me...they are already giving the sport the slow bleed. The sport is not dynamic enough.

Only because most of them can't afford to play anything else. Take these starving kids, wipe the flies out of their eyes and give them baseball, football, basketball, tennis, golf etc. as an option and you'd see what I mean.

All of you are rediculous. Why the hell should the pitcher be allowed just to throw the ball where it can't be hit? In no other sport can you run away from the opposition. IT'S PUSSY! He may throw a wild one just trying to walk a guy and everyone advances. Either way the game is better.

Pitching changes need limits. Having zero limits on how may times you change pitchers is crazy. Are there not limits for batting line up?

Salary cap is obviously needed most of all.

Anyone who is a fan of Soccer is in no position to bash baseball.

Period.

Soccer is tougher. You actually have to face your competition head on.

1) Real revenue sharing. Look at the NFL, NHL, and the NBA. Figure out what they are doing right and emulate it.

2) Install a salary cap. And make it a hard cap, no more luxury tax BS.

3) Insall a salary floor, make it as strong as the salary cap. No more cheap teams that are unwilling to pay thier players.

4) Profit

I have a different idea. Do not limit revenue sharing to only national TV revenues. Where the haves are becoming so out of balance is in their regional and self owned networks. Take half of those monies and split them amongst all teams. The teams that make more will still have more, but that difference won't be so pronounced. The Yankees earned $427 million in revenues. 13 clubs had more than $200 million. The Pirates bring up the rear with $160 million. Those numbers are going to jump with new deals by the Angels and Rangers.

I think you'll find that teams are spending what they can on players based on revenues. Here's a list, team by team from Forbes.

Tell that to Nolan Ryan.

Ok, you've got one. I have EVERY OTHER PITCHER THAT'S EVER PLAYED.

I'll give you Mo Vaughn too. His shoulder block was badass.

You know what REALLY needs to be changed about Baseball?

(in no particular order)

1. The Disparity

2. The Draft

3. The Broadcasts

4. The amount of games played

This seems to be changing. At least this season.

Looking at each division, I'm seeing parity.

Sure, there's rich and poor, but the rich aren't really showing it on the field.

1. In the NL the pitcher bats and in the AL he doesn't? What other sport in the world has shit like that? PICK ON RULE!

2. Ball park walls are all different distances from the plate. It would be pretty stupid go to Oakland and play on an 80 yard field then go to Denver for a game on a 60 yard field. Standardize the damn distance.

3. The intentonal walk needs to be abolished. Being allowed to run away from your opponent is total BS and gay. At least make the pitcher throw the ball where it can be hit.

4. Pitching changes need to some type of limit. 2 per game or 3 would probably be best. I would say after 3 you can change. Then after 7 but none after that.

Make the damn game better

I agree about the DH. I don't about the rest. The fact that each park has different physics plays a large part in the strategy of the game. The intentional walk is just part of the game, as are pitching changes.

Now, if you want to talk about abolishing guaranteed contracts, I'm all for it.

I am from South KC but have lived in Ark for 12 years being stationed here. I bleed KC Red and Mizzou gold. Don't laugh at Arkansas. Most don't think much of Missouri in general either.
