FanPost Friday: If baseball were different, how different would it be?

There are a lot of rule changes being bandied about. Which changes would you make?

Over the past several weeks we’ve heard about some of the changes to the National Pastime commissioner Rob Manfred and Major League Baseball are considering, from pitch clocks to signals for the intentional walk to putting a runner on second base in extra innings. These ideas range from the terrible to the slightly less terrible. This begs the question: can the Rockies fans at Purple Row come up with anything better? This week’s FanPost Friday prompt:

If you could add, subtract, or otherwise change one MLB rule, what would it be?

You don’t necessarily have to be an MLB rules expert to participate. Is there one rule that you just absolutely hate and should be undone? Do you have an idea that you think would make the game even better? Is there something needs just a slight tweak to be perfect?

Write up a FanPost (if you include “FPF” in the title it will be easier to find) and tell us about this rule and how you think it would impact the game. Feel free to debate these changes in the comments of each post.

As usual, we’ll round up all the best responses in a recap next Friday, where debate will surely continue.
