MLB will use experimental rule changes in 2021 minor-league season
"So think if. Somebody's baseball ideas. Major league baseball spring training. Well do it now. Almost into it's not quite as third weekend but yeah what they're doing is major league. Baseball's got every level of minor league baseball trying out rules. New rule changes that if they go well they might consider implementing it the major league level. So it's basically test time. Experimental rule changes so. Let's go through a few of them. Yes all of it though. Just just to preface it. Steve the backstory hairstyle. Nice is they want more balls in play. Okay how can they. How can they get more ball. That that's what i read today right and it's also increase the pace of play. That's always something that every league is concerned with given they're trying to attract the youth and the youth probably has less attention span than any generation in history but Let's go through some of the minor league ball rule changes and a couple in particular that we wanna talk about. But we'll go through them. Triple a ball. Which is where the ottawa. Lynx us to play you can have larger bases. They'll be eighteen square inches instead of the usual fifteen and so that means your distance between basis is a little shorter three inches this just in and they're hoping to increase stolen bases with that aa ball. They're going to ban extreme defensive shifts. The deal is you have to have at least four defenders on the infield and they have to be all of them with two feet on the infield dirt enable inaba step off. Rule pitchers are going to be cold for a balk of they. Don't completely disengage from the rubber before throwing to a base and that's designed to increase stolen bases as well you've also got an ball pitchers limited to pick off attempts per plate appearance and if the pitcher tries for a third pick off and the runner is safe. He'll be charged with a bach. Because they we all agree that that thr- over the first base after a while it's pretty damn tedious but the two changes that will be happening in low able will be automatic strike zone systems previously used in the atlantic league in the fall league and the league is also set to use additional timers to increase the pace of play as well including between the delivery pitches and those two big. Those two things could be really big if they work in minor league ball and eventually end up in major league. Paul and those to me are the two biggest ones to me. That's like is a massive change. Stephen baseball if you have a consistent computerized strike zone be no. You know what i mean. No doubt about it. I watch games last year. Where you know even the announcers right you. You'll see a game where where the party out noise calling that low on. You know what he's calling it a strike he's calling it a strike that low on but then i saw them where it was. Just so willy. Nilly you know what this guy was calling and batters get it. You know you're just you're strikes on a little bit these calling the low on us highway one. But i've seen them where it's just knows what they're doing and its way out of the frame that they put up there now. That's a huge change. That'll make a big difference a bit. That'll nothing with the speed of play. But you know. I think it's the most significant thing ever. Yeah yeah. Baseball needs to keep evolving. All sports. Do though

"This was supposed to have started in the Atlantic League at the beginning of the year in April and they had a handful of delays even up to and including I said said they figured out as they were trying to get this going that they needed to set up not just wi fi but extended wi fi for when the umpire Rome's out of his area so they were not able to get this going until recently ah they tested it out in a long island ducks in Somerset game and then they unveil it kind of the big public bells and whistles on bailing just last Wednesday at the Atlantic League all star Game. They're hoping to run it all through the second half of the year. It's not in Atlantic. League is an independent professional league so the minor leagues. It's not running yet in any of the minor league system so they're trying to work out all the kinks this year so the next step if they can get the kinks worked out then would be to move it into some minor leagues and then make sure they get it up and going there and they would have to run those tests in the minor leagues before come to the major so if everything goes well could be in the major leagues you know I'm GonNa say maybe within three years or so so I mean it's not that far out but if the tests don't go well you know it could be delayed a little bit beyond that but it's definitely something that M._l._B. is investing much time and money to and you know how that goes once you start investing money and they're not doing it just for fun. That's right Scott great peace. Thanks for calling hope this first of many times you <hes> you call into the show. Thanks again my pleasure. It's thank you guys Scott Miller of bleacher report do umpires dream of electronic strikes great piece. I mean stars the game aim he. He got soup to nuts and apparently again.

It's the the difference in height like judge strokes the play. Now Tuesday strolls the plate. You've got a recalibrate not as much rather have just an umpire just blow it with his own eyes then well. I didn't hear what he had. I heard I didn't hear was that ball. was that strike.

"The other things pitcher will be required to step off the rubber for pickoff attempts. A batter will be allowed one foul to strike bunt before a strikeout is called and lastly played umpires will define check swings more favorably for a better so all of these changes. I suppose seem of a piece they all seem intended to make the game more dynamic to get guys running to decrease strikeouts. I guess just more on Bass events more excitement and I continue to think that there may be just doing too many things at once this so many things that it will be hard to it's hard to keep track of all the things be. It's hard to assess the impact of any one of them. See It's getting to the point now where it must be pretty overwhelming or these players as I mean let's be on it. God Love It. We're probably going to come out in favor of it on this podcast but that stealing first base thing is stupid. That's like I'm not saying it's not gonNa work but like imagine going in and telling the players now you can do this yeah i. What are we doing yeah? We're going to have to have an authentic leaguer on the show just to talk about what they think of this because it must be jarring some of it's not even I mean you play the game for or your whole life under certain rules and now they're changing so many of them out once especially something like a pitcher will be required to step up the rubber for pickoff attempts all of a sudden. That's like that's muscle memory. That's like deeply ingrained probably right. That's gotta be a hard thing to just suddenly say okay. This is what you do now so I don't know if they're going to suspend ball calls until people get used to this or what but anyway it seems a little overwhelming but but I am interested in all of these rule changes and and I I've seen backlash to wire they tampering with baseball baseball's perfect et CETERA. This is making a mockery of the game. This isn't baseball anymore. People seem upset about this. At least some people and I'm not upset about it. I like it.

"So I'm not in love with the idea. But I'm either vetting it out a little bit this year in the Atlantic league. You can see how that plays out. So we were going to get some more of that. So they're they're trying a few different things. What would you think Rowbottom pirate home plate? How I feel like I've been I've been I've been wanting that for a while. Just and it's not because I don't respect on Pires. I do and I like I like the human nature of the game. I am old school. But there's there's so much on the line with balls and strikes, and it's such a hard job. Like, you can't you're not gonna get them. Right. Like, it's really hard. And I just think being that there's so much on the line with balls and strikes. It'd be great if we can get them right because. You know, they affect people's careers and the seasons like in ways that are like really hard to hard to calculate wouldn't be less fun. Yelling at a robot though. Yeah. Although I try never to get empire. Because it's like, it doesn't do you any good? You want them to call? You wanna lose lose more pitching to give more bitches? Yeah. What about a pitch clock? I don't like it. I'm not for me. I mean the game. I I don't I don't like I don't like the clock between the innings. I mean, obviously, we want things to go in a timely manner. But I think like the clock is just not a thing that you for decades. And decades you went and saw a baseball game. And now to have a clock right in your face like as like hurry up and come set. And I don't know. I'm not a big fan of it between some of those rule changes. And you know, the free agency market taking so long to develop. It seems like there's building tension between players and owners, do you think we're headed for striking a couple years? I don't know. I don't know that it will happen. But I I will say this like the players are are very aware of everything that's happening. And really preparing for that possibility. Like, so I think if there was to be one like this would this would be the time. I'm just because like maybe the last couple negotiations like the players. It wasn't on our radar that that like a work stoppage could be a necessary like tactic. But I think the guys have really like really been paying attention to the last two years and really starting to ask the larger questions and even the young guy. So I think that the guys are more connected now than they probably were over the last ten years. And I think that's that's a powerful thing. If you could steal one pitchers pitch. Let's say the history of the game. Not even now who would be to just add the arsenal. That's a tough one. I mean, it'd be nice to have that Jordan Hicks hundred and three months. Springstreen for one week. You're just adjusting tickets and one oh three. Yeah. Yeah. That's crazy. It's also weird that he didn't have as many strikeouts. You'd think with that. But he also added a slider this off season. So that's yeah. Willing to bet that he's gonna strike a lot of guys this year. I think he's gonna learn figure out some things there was some more sliders figure out maybe four seamer. He's gonna punch tickets if he's the National League. All right. So before we start her up to more kind of just random well once a question one is an assessment question. Just what are few of your pet peeves? You seem like you might keep a list of pet peeves? Olis'? I I have a less. I I don't know if that's a common thing. But what what are some things that bother about baseball? No, just now life life, New York life. New York City bicyclists, really.

"I these are rules that are going to be implemented in the Atlantic league. Which by the way is a pretty good independently started here in the northeast do. New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York got a team the Long Island ducks. I some reason they put a team in Texas. Doesn't sit didn't seem to make sense. Still doesn't make sense to me. They've had franchises joined the league drop out of the league comeback in his I think two out of the original ones over the twenty years at the league has been in existence. I was kinda bombed because I had a Atlantic league team. Twelve months my house. It takes me fifteen minutes, my house into photocopy a proper and the field that was in Camden, New Jersey overlooked the Benjamin Franklin bridge, which ran from Camden into Philadelphia, so fourteen miles somewhere there abouts a really nice minor league stadium. Campbell's field was the name of it. Campbell's has a major plant right down on. The Camden waterfront there, and they helped kick in money and bought the naming rights for the field and add the Camden Reeb river sharks for years, and they went belly up, which was unfortunate because it really was a quality stadium. I've been to minor league stadiums all over the country. And this one was as nice as most as nice as the stadiums that they have down in Florida and Arizona that major league games during spring training. And they just couldn't make a work, which was unfortunate. Probably. So many entertainment dollars to go round and Philly is it is as I said just on the other side of the bridge and Phillies a diehard Phillies town, I was disappointed. They could make a work went to a bunch of games staff over the years, but they no longer play in Camden. They redid the field. I guess Rutgers Camden, it's a spinoff university of Rutgers University, which is up New Brunswick, downing Camden. They've got a campus as well. And they've got their own athletic programs and not the same as Rutgers University itself in the big ten. They bought the field and turned it into a baseball slash softball slash soccer field. Which was it was a great stadium. I bummed out by the Atlantic league is got into bed with major league baseball. I guess MLB reached out to him and said, listen, we've got some rule changes. We're contemplating. We don't want to do it. We're not going to do it on a major league love. We'd have get okay. From the players to be able to do something like this. And we're not going to be able to slap it together. We're not even sure we want to do with our minor league teams. Minor league teams were working on other things developing players. We're not sure that we want to do. So would you like us to fund the Atlantic league? And you accept the rule changes that we want you to implement for us. And apparently, the Atlantic league said fine. They're not doing this out of the goodness in Iran. I can tell you that because they are as I mentioned earlier at least in part competitors. Because Atlantic league teams are within some kind of distance of a major league team. And we're gonna win. When Orlando bleed game you're not going to a major league game. So they they shouldn't really wanna be helping each other out the only way it works. Is somebody's writing a check. So without having seen the finance agreement. That's in place. I'll speculate for you. Oh, MLB wrote a pretty good check to the Atlantic league and said we'd like you to implement these rule changes. So we can get a firsthand look at them in practicality on the field. So we can make a determination. Whether we'd be good for our game. The game on is the pie levels. No mound visits for anyone other than the pitching coach for. Other than excuse me for pitching changes or medical issues. So the pitching coach can't come out and talk to the pitcher anymore. The catcher can't go out and talk to the pitcher anymore. The patriots gotta be out there on an island by himself that is certainly targeting pace of play. They want to speed up the game of baseball. I think it's a little over reactive. I'd like what they did last year. Limiting the numbers of visit. You could have rather than white them all loud. I think that's an over. Stap in trying to speed up the game. So I don't like it. But I understand it yet about pace of play the elimination of most defender of shifts by requiring to infielders on each side of second base. I like I sign off on it. I don't like it because yes, you're limiting defence. And defence should be part of the game. You're handicapping defense. But in professional sports, they put rules in all the time to protect teams against themselves that they've gotten so good at crunching the numbers and figuring out when and when not to share that it is hurting offense in baseball. 'cause shifts do the job that they're supposed to do and limit deadpool laters and take basis away by having guys properly placed defensively on a diamond and baseball wants more offense. So it should be easy to say as little just tell the hitter to hit them where they aren't that makes sense. But major league baseball doesn't want to ask that the players. They want to have them. Go up there and swing it. So they are kind of plating eliminating shifting by keeping to infielders on each side of the diamond. That's to increase offense in major league. Baseball three batter. Minimum for pitchers barring injuries. I think that plays into pace of game as well. Because the managers are just going out there and changing pitches all the time and having to have thirteen patriots on a twenty five man roster. You got nine position of your in American League. You got ten ten position to Bill including designated hitter half of which you're gonna use for just one position and the other half were all of the positions. Well, they can limit the number of pitches. Are you being used by going with? I'm like this. And I laid out my staggered approach that yes, this could be implemented for the first seven innings every game. But in the eighth inning give demand. You're a little bit more flexibility. You only have to pay to hitters ninth-inning win the game. Truly is on the line. We only have to play face one hitter. If you wanna pull a guy right away. I think it really will. It keeps the essence of manner. And strategy in a game exempt as a matter of fact, I think it adds to it. Moving the patriots a back in additional two feet to sixty two feet six inches comma during the second half of the season is the most ludicrous thing I've ever heard of in my entire life. We can debate how much moving the rubber back. Two feet would do. Yes. The balls gotta travel longer. You can't throw it as hard. It can be as hard coming out of your hand. Is it was? But it's got a slowdown gravity is gonna take home. So ninety nine could become ninety seven ninety five could become ninety two. It should make it easier for the headers adjustment period for the pitchers as well. I think that's good again. I'm ready willing and able to take a look at that. In the middle of the year is asinine. I never heard of anything like that. First of all, what are you gonna do? Take two weeks off and fix all the fields. And I know by the way, just tell the pictures. Yeah. Go out and throw from two feet further after Dave. She worked on getting emotion. Exactly. Right. From say, it's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. If you're going to do something like that you need to implemented over time not changing in the middle of the season and a one that annoys me the most the use of track man radars to assist home plate umpire, calling balls and strikes. Assist. Somebody needs to explain assist to me. I think you meant to say replace home plate umpires calling balls and strikes because if they put radar in if they put lays in the empire's can no longer make the call a laser is going to make the call, and I didn't grow up playing video games. When I was a kid, we had this novel idea if you like sports, you went out and actually played them rather than sit in front of a console and a sixty inch television with a joystick in your hand. So I was never a video kid. This was feels like to me major league baseball would become joystick time that lasers are deciding to game rather than actual play individuals humans umpires I like instant replay ever call is wrong. I want to get it. Right. You have to have some implementation with actual human beings. And I think the empire's do as good a job as they can call him, balls and strikes. So that's one I will you'll never get me to buy. I'll never give up the game. I love major league baseball. But I will watch it with less pervert, if they go to this this one as as Eddie addic- is changing the length of the pitch in season as dumb as that is. I do that before we go to lasers. Call him Baltin strikes. Eight eight eight seven to nine ninety four ninety four. What do you think? Tom from Albany is up on CBS sports radio. I tommy. Hey, Jodie next taking my call. You gotta but with all the pace of play stuff. You know, the one thing I'll tell you. Now, this is an admittedly small sample size. But everybody I've talked to my friends who are based. Okay. And I've heard it in other places too. I think you're on the you know, you're saying the right thing with it's the pace of play not necessarily the game. But I'm telling you right now from you know, from what I can tell with no callers on sports radio. It's the biggest thing that is getting people away from the game. And that they hate is the schlepping in between pitches that is you know, all the other changes that they're that. They're thinking about and trying to implement their great. But you know, the one I'd like to see and I'm a huge baseball fan the whole night. It's my favorite sport. I'd like to see the pitch FOX. I really would. And listen we've known that in the game of basketball implemented any number of rules to just get the players to play the game. There is the twenty four th you know, there's the shot clock. There's the inbound rule. There's the half court will there's the three second rule, you know, the play clock and football. Yeah. There's a play clock. And you're just to get the players to get the game going. And that to me is the biggest thing the pitching changes. You know, I see where they're coming from one. I think they did a good job in terms of limiting the mound visits gazette was contributing to the schlock put well, but the big thing is the Nomar Garciaparra stepping out, and you know, tying batting gloves in between each pitch the pitcher walking around on the mail bag five times. It's that's the big thing that more than anything. I really don't mind the three and a half hour game. And I'm hearing more and more people say that as well. It's just they have to get you know, again, you've probably heard this before you've probably seen it before. And you remember you go back on any one of the. Yes. Number up here. And you watch the Yankee classes games for the Yankees always win. It's yeah. I mean, you watch any of those games like they Righetti perfect game or any games from the nineteen nineties pre strike, and you just it's it's almost amazing. You know in I was in my teenager, then..

It'll get baseball back to where used to be when it actually wasn't astronaut pastime he could play an American game too. And. The half just other thing with these how many pitches you face. This is stupid. Yeah. So we're in agreement on this in the sense that one is a function of time and we eat up the game and the others function strategy, and we don't wanna mess with strategy. They think that's going to speed up the game. But it isn't. Okay. You don't mess with strategy. I there is something that is intriguing.

Then if you're pay gets cut. If your pig out of my Bill Beck. Let's brain pitching mound. Back the second base of input pooling little people coming up little if Duke loses without Zion. Does it really count? Are the raiders right to pump up? Derek carr. You don't any religion to Roger Goodell. Danny was felt like. It's time for the game. We found on a shelf behind a box in storage closet, something or nothing. Let's get the first one from sports television legend, Michael Ray will Bon that's Hugh. Something or nothing. Dukes lost last night. Without zayante watched all of it nothing. I put it in the same category as their lost North Carolina. These are very good team ten and North Carolina. They are ranked teams. He's the best basketball player in college basketball. We assume he's going to play again, if he played in either of these games the line would have changed by ten or twelve points. It's something it's a big something is not because I on was out, although for junior take head its way around the basket as did North Carolina without Zion.

I think Derek Carr is a franchise quarterback. I don't know what more supposed to say. I mean, if Patrick Mahomes comes available, of course, go get them. But this indicates to me they're not in the market to go in the draft for a quarterback. And they're not in the market to go for Nick foles. First of all, this is nothing and it's stupid because if you felt you had a franchise quarterback, why the hell did you trade your franchise live, backer and your franchise wide receiver last year? So they don't even believe this junk. Okay. And it's junk with people are out there pronouncing in the middle of February. That somebody's a franchise. Somebody's a number one. Somebody's going to lead us. It doesn't mean squat do enough. Some it's a big. Fat noth-. What's next something? Nothing. San Francisco Giants have their second meeting with your boy. Yeah. Bryce harper. I want to say this is something because I can't believe it's nothing. I am troubled by all this. We hear nothing out of the Bryce Harper camp. There's nothing definitive.

There's guys that go down and w triple A and people get signed pretty quickly out of the Atlantic league. I think I heard that the reason. Why that hadn't happened in the last two years from his I just don't have AA time. So teams don't really want to sign a guy into Stroman AA, if he hasn't been there yet, they wanna more experienced guy who's been there and done that.
