My wish

Last nights Dodger Padre game was one of the best games I've ever seen. If you aren't a fanof baseball , then nothing will ever make you one. Please Mr. Manfred, get rid of the gimmick ghost runner. Baseball has been fine as it is for 120 plus years , quit messing with it

Re: My wish

100% agree, also the 7 inning doubleheaders

Re: Re: My wish

As has been said before, both were put in for COVID reasons and both are expected to be gone when that’s not an issue. They weren’t put in to mess with the game.

Re: My wish

I agree....there is nothing gimmicky about these temporary changes. I feel they are justified due to all issues resulting from the pandemic which has put team rosters under stress, and required numerous cancellations, resulting in many more double headers. Hopefully "normalcy returns next year.

Re: Re: My wish

Bubbles, it is a little hard to plead your case that the game is being messed with, when you begin with this line..."Last nights Dodger Padre game was one of the best games I've ever seen."

Re: My wish

I think….the Dodgers vs Padres would be a great NLCS. They are the best rivalry in sports right now. The energy when they play is amazing, as the fans are really into it. I am really hoping to see them play each other in the postseason. It would be great for baseball fans. As far as the rules go, I am a bit of a traditionalist myself. I want to say these rule changes were put in place b4 COVID? There were some who complained about how long the games were. But to me, that is part of what makes baseball so great, is it is a game played with no time limit. Unfortunately, in today’s fast society, a game like baseball isn’t appreciated, because people want a quick result and don’t understand or appreciate the story a game can tell.
