Yeah, reading between the lines it sounds like he has it pretty bad. Guy's had a fever since Thursday. Not going to eulogize him or anything but it just sounds a little more ominous than the other publicized cases.
What's curious is that his wife says that they never went out for 4 months, yet he still caught it.
Like what? The problem, which is one of many, is that the quality of pitching has outpaced the quality of hitting, so strikeouts have gone up. Baseball has evolved to the point where players are too good at certain things and other things have not kept pace.
We’re not going to get an electric ump, the empires union would never allow it. We could re-define Strike zone, but frankly, and I’ve said this before, I would rather just make it easier for players to get on base.
Or make it harder to hit home runs - by changing the balls or moving the fences out. I'm going by the assumption that players will stop using the upper-cut swing if they're less likely to hit homers, but I could be wrong.
Right on with the shoot outs. I'm not a hockey guy, but on the occasions I've watched, they're very exciting. And I've suggested using that kind of idea - with a mini homerun derby. I think it's a MUCH better idea than starting out with a runner on 2nd base.
