The Dodgers are reportedly signing free agent OF A.J. Pollock. That makes it even less likely that they have any serious interest in Bryce Harper.
The DH not being in the National League has nothing to do with why games run long. They're trying to implement a 20 second pitch clock to speed the game up.I read a MLB story on my Yahoo Sports app. MLB is considering having the National League join the American League in the DESIGNATED HITTER. The purpose would be to address the problem of games running too long.
Will that 20 second pitch clock be experimented with this upcoming Spring Training?The DH not being in the National League has nothing to do with why games run long. They're trying to implement a 20 second pitch clock to speed the game up.
MLB rule changes: The universal DH makes sense, and it's time for the National League to make the switchA universal DH is one of many proposed rule changes being discussed ahead of the 2019 seasonwww.cbssports.com
No. It’s been experimented with in the minors.Will that 20 second pitch clock be experimented with this upcoming Spring Training?
Thank you.No. It’s been experimented with in the minors.
If it’s ever implemented I don’t think it will last long. Some experts think more recovery time is needed between pitches and that this rule will increase injuries.
Hmm. Baseball is a game of statistics. I'm sure MLB keeps track of the running time of each game....which as you correctly say is always different. At the end of the 152 game season you can add those times up and then divide by 152. You would then have the "average" running time....even though every game is different.Every game is different. There's no real way to determine whether or not one league runs shorter than the other.
