    I'm fine with the 3 batter minimum. I think it puts emphasis on a new type of strategy, while also increasing the chances for offense. The league is really suffering from a "strikeout or home run" problem, although just putting a limit on pitchers isn't going to solve that alone. More guys need to learn to hit against the shift.

    Great question and something that I was wondering as well.

    As a beer vendor, I like these rules Monday - Thursday. Don't love them Friday - Sunday though.

    See post #15.

    A pitcher can be removed after facing just one batter if that batter is the last out of the inning.

    The sooner balls and strikes are called by a computer, the better.
