I think they should put a time limit on it. If they can't tell after 60 seconds, the call on the field holds up.

Hell you could make that 30 based on what I have seen.

Arod's 3000th a home run. I was at Jeter's 3000th, which was also a home run. Probably the most exciting sports event I've ever been at. The seat, being 9 rows up from 1st base weren't bad either.

I don't even count Aaron's home runs hit while a DH for the Brewers.

Bob LOL... you gots to! Forget the roids, 3000 hits is 200 hits a year for 15 years. That's an accomplishment no matter what. You can do roids, uppers aka "pep pills" like they did in Aaron's day, or nothing, you still have to get a bat on the ball and get it through for a hit, averaging 200 times a season for a long time.

But you don't have to play in the field. Sit in the shade and come out once in a while. How about put on the flannels and get out there?

as older sports ( baseball ) fans we are more than 50 years . The complexity of baseball will never be on an equal playing field. but what has changed in some years is the action of modern day ball players. The little league chants w/ softball actions. Clearly shows where men are acting like girls.

Then face up to the unfortunate fact that your team is mostly made up of half ball players.... Designated Fielders

A bit ago Steve Carlton was a stud. When a pitcher complained about lack of run support he said, "Pitch a shut out and hit a home run."

Bob,

I can appreciate that, but the AL ain't goin' back.

As it is now, your NL teams have to play by AL rules in their parks. There is rumor mongering going on where teams could carry 2 extra players because AL managers don't know how to manage their bullpens and keep a bench. Imagine!

So, being a Yankee fan, I could curse the day Ron Blomberg was born, or I can root for my team.

And, by the way, studs like Steve Carlton don't exist in either league any longer!

A courtesy runner for the pitcher? When are they going to put a keg behind second base?
