    Limit catchers' "visits" to the mound during a game or inning. So much time wasted...especially during the post season.

    Disagree. There unfortunately are those kind of innings in which you really have to talk to your pitcher a lot. Especially if you and your pitcher are not on the same page on this day. And trust me: You hate these days.

    This irritates my wife. Its just a game to me, not a war. The chummy stuff always seems to go away in the playoffs though.

    I hate that over a typical 3 hour game, you will have 17 minutes of actual game time.

    Wish there some form of clock control between pitches and batters. Keep the pace of the game going.

    Relief pitchers getting credited with the W with one inning pitched.

    It is classified as an error. Joey Votto had one similar to that earlier this year.

    Me, I'm a Realist. 1/2 empty IS 1/2 full.
