Re: Rules change
On the dropped third strike, it just adds that little element of chance. The ball maybe skips past the catcher and allows a Freel-like to get on base, maybe the catcher makes an errant throw to the 1b and the guy suddenly is at second because the ball skips down the line. It creates some 'reasonable' excitement IMO.
The DH should be all or none. Both should adopt it, or both should drop it. My preference would be to drop it, but thats just me. Then again imagine the Reds lineup with a DH everyday.....less Dunn, more Denorfia [in the OF that is].
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
