  1. 1. Do you like the extra inning runner on 2B rule?



Recommended Posts

I know we had some discussion of this rule before the season started, but I can’t find it.   

Having now seen it in action, I’m a fan.   Both LeBlanc and Hyde said they liked it, too.   Obviously it worked to the O’s advantage last night, but could hurt them on some other occasion.   But I’m in favor of not having extra innings drag on too long.   Maybe not in the postseason, but I think it’s good for the regular season.

I like it for this year.  If it is being considered long term I would like it to happen in the 12th, I think.

This is about where I am too, maybe the 11th.

Regular season games shouldn't wreck your bullpen for a week. 

If you don't like it, you should have outscored them in the first nine innings.

I might like it permanently in the 11th, but for this year I’m fine as is. Those were a couple of exciting innings to end the game yesterday.

I guess I'm more of a traditionalist, but if the goal was to not have super-extended extra inning games, I would have rather have brought in tie games in the regular season (say, if no one wins by the end of the 12th than it's a tie) than this.  

It just kind of comes off as beer-league-softball goofy to me right now.  Maybe it'll grow on me later, who knows.

New rule: 

From 13th inning onward, each team has to pull a position player. 

 

Kidding obviously, but it did help bring some sandlot games to a close faster, anyway ;)

That would be interesting for the home-plate umpire if a team decided to pull the catcher.

Last night, the first three runners placed on second were retired (tag out at third, tag out at home :mad:, and doubled up at second. That has to be a record,  for now.

Even more interesting sandlot rule: 

 

Penalizing hitters pulling the ball, ie not going to opposite field or up the middle.

I don’t like it, but I like 16 inning games, which is perhaps not normal. I like marathon games in any sport. I think the Caps-Islanders Easter Epic left a scar on my psyche.

If your goal Is just to get the game over with, there are a lot more fun and interesting ways to do it. NashLumber can provide consulting.

I like it after seeing it Saturday night. That was very exciting! EVERY half inning was suspenseful. Of course it could be brutally painful... but still would be edge of your seat baseball.

MUCH better to be the home team. Even more so than the traditional format.

Hate it. Now and forever.

If you guys want a sport that looks largely like it did in 1870 there's always cricket.

Except they have added two new varieties of Cricket in the recent past so make sure you tune into the right one.

I don't think you saw this back in 1870.

    • We’d probably know a lot more right now if they’d actually played a season this year.    I’m hoping Tony can ferret out some honest information about what the guys who made it to Fall Instructs are showing.   
    • While having success at higher levels or the minor leagues or even in a taste of the big league is part of the evaluation process and lessens the risk profile of players, it is not the only criteria for placement on the list above another prospect. If you concerned over him being behind Kevin Smith, I'll tell you, I could have easily built a case for either to be above the other. They are very similar prospects as their scouting grades would show you. Smith gets the slight nod for being at more advance stage when he was 22 than Zimmermann was and for the the better slider command that gives him a better chance at his floor.
    • That’s not the way these guys get graded.   Yes you get some credit for how high you’ve gotten in the system, but ultimately the grades are about (1) your expected outcome, and (2) your ceiling.   Zimmermann has made it to the majors, which is great, but his most likely role is a swing man.   Other guys have more potential, if less certainty of reaching the majors.     That said, almost every guy on the list from no. 12 through no. 26 has been graded 45 FV/50 ceiling, so we are really splitting hairs here.   The only exceptions are Baumler and Mayo (both graded 50/60) who haven’t played beyond high school yet so there’s a lot of uncertainty there, and Hernaiz (45/55) who hasn’t played above the GCL.   Those are guys who could move up or down the list pretty significantly next year.     
    • A million for Tommy Milone? He’ll be lucky to get a minor league contract from someone. 
    • o   You better take a diamond ring ...... you better pawn it, babe.   o
    • The write up makes me think that he is not a starter that Hyde would want to rely on every 5th day.  Maybe more of a swingman.  So that makes it more likely the O's sign a Milone type to begin the season or maybe Milone himself if they can get him for a million for one year.
    • o   That's somewhat of a rare song in which Lennon and Harrison switched on and off for the lead and rhythm. Lennon essentially plays lead for the majority of the song, while Harrison strums the chords. Then for the lead guitar solo it's Harrison playing lead, while Lennon briefly strums the chords. Then at the end of the solo, Lennon goes back to (essentially) playing lead while Harrison strums the chords.   Somewhat similarly, in the song "I'm Happy Just to Dance with You" it's Lennon playing the dominant portion of the guitar (strumming/picking extremely fast) while Harrison strums the chords ...... the difference being that unlike the case with "All My Loving", there is no guitar solo in "I'm Happy Just to Dance with You."   o
