I mean if you can raise it I could see moving it a little. But I don't see how that solves the problem.
The problem isn't an imbalance between offense and defense.
The problem is both offense and defense are seeking to do the same thing. Which is boring.
I was thinking something like...
Require a batter who enters the batters box, to remain in the batters box.
Require a pitcher to maintain an average delivery time per pitch of <10 seconds (ball in hand to ball in catcher's mitt)... scored by batter, or by inning... but by an official scorer off line.
Failure to maintain pace results in a relief pitcher being imposed.
Multiple pace failures in a game results in 5 day disqualification for all pitchers cited.
I dunno, I'm thankful that I'm not in a position where I've gotta figure that out.
I'm not a total purist but when people start mentioning things like moving the mound back...ehhh, I dunno. You don't see the NBA raising the rim, the NFL making the field longer. 60 feet, 6 inches is sacrosanct, IMO.
I rewatched it and I think he could have lateraled it to Baker after his first read wasn't open, then run up the far sideline, and he either would have been completely wide open for Baker to throw it to, or Baker would have had a lane the size of Texas to scramble.
The Browns need to throw that play into the garbage can and then set the entire garbage can on fire to make sure it never sees the light of day again.
