Coaches, GMs, owners, players and fans are calling for monumental changes to America’s game.
Most likely will be the addition of instant replay so we don’t have any Jeffrey Maier situations, and the regulation of maple bats as they have been shattering at a record pace and it is only a matter of time before someone get seriously injured.
Less likely (but still on the plate) are new draft regulations that will put a cap on how much power top prospects like Seton Hall’s Rick Porcello and their agents Scott Boras has over teams vying for talent.
Oh sh*t, I forgot about Hank Steinbrenner who has a strong opinion of the NL after the Yankees’ star pitcher Wang was injured running the bases saying, “My only message is simple: The National League needs to grow up and join the 21st century. I’ve got my pitchers running the bases, and one of them gets hurt. He’s going to be out. I don’t like that, and it’s about time they address it. That was a rule from the 1800s.”
But what about banning over sized body armor or pointing to the sky after crossing home plate? Or the $2 hot dog rule and outlawing sushi from concession stands?
These are the New Rules Of Baseball that have been submitted by fans across America and outlined by CBS Sportsline. Although ridiculous, some of these rules make a lot of sense–and should be tested in the minor leagues.
If I had my way, I’d implement a Boni Jovi rule that would call the music legend to perform during the 7th inning stretch of every game Yankee game until the end of the season. That’s a little unrealistic and being from New Jersey, I’m biased. So for now, we’ll just have to settle for a free Bon Jovi All-Star game concert at Central Park.
