    I hope they don't go to 7 inning games all the time.
    A big part of strategy when the other team has their ace on the mound is to keep it close until the bullpen comes in.
    With 7 inning games, that doesn't happen.
    I'm ok with 7 inning games on double headers. I am sure the players love it.
    It's nice for the fans that the second game isn't all bench players too, since the first game is only 7 innings, many starters can play both.

    I love the DH, I have been wanting that in the NL my whole life.

    I thought the extra runner on 2b in extra innings would be stupid, but I actually like it. It makes extra innings more exciting, and it also helps prevent those 14-18 inning marathons which wear out the players.

    Don't like the reliever has to face 3 batters minimum, but I could live with it.

    Of all of those I dislike the runner on 2nd base the most but as long as it's not in play in the postseason it's ok.

    I'm fine with 7 inning double headers but only for make up games where we aren't doing split day-night games. so basically that will make them very very rare. but if you want to do a 1pm and 4pm 7 inning true doubleheader because the team has to play early the next day in another city im okay with it.

    But I really enjoy it.
    How is the scenario scored officially to show why the guy arrived at 2B? Just curious.

    Runner Placed on Base

    Xxxxxx starts inning on second base.

    NOTE: The runner placed on second is the man who made the last out in the previous inning, unless a pinch runner is used. Also, if that run scores, it is an unearned run. Here is an odd scenario. A pitcher could pitch a perfect game, yet still lose. He retires all 27 batters in regulation. The runner is placed on second to start the tenth, and subsequently comes around to score without the aid of another runner reaching base.

    How would you like to pitch a no-hitter, or better yet, a perfect game and lose, because baseball management is a clown shoe and start arbitrarily putting runners in scoring position?

    Iím on board with the DH. Like others have said, I hardly noticed it. Iím not sure if thatís good or bad.

    For 7 inning doubleheaderís, if we go back to a normal 162 game season, I think itís a moot point. Teams donít like doubleheaderís from a gate perspective. Maximize the $$$.

    Runner on second in extras is too gimmicky. A hard no there.

    26 man roster? Eh. I prefer ballplayers being ballplayers and they play the whole game. Wholesale substitutions like early this season was a wtf to me. Stop that. I realize I am a fossil.

    And I do like the 3 batter rule. I view the pace of the game as important. I donít go to the ballpark to see managers try to be geniuses. Letís move things along here.
    Itís not the thing you fling, itís the fling itself.

    I'm also curious how it would be noted on a score card. What is Xxxxxx?
