I like baseball. I don't like 5 pitches in 15 mins.

The greatest problem with baseball is the number of pitching changes and the time each one takes. Instead of the 3 batter rule, I'd do the following:
- reduce roster size (yes, I'm aware the MLBPA wouldn't let that occur);
- standardize field and bullpen mounds;
- take away on the field warm-up pitches; and
- go to split screen ads.


Limit the number of pitchers on the roster

Limit the number to ten. The extra 3 or 4 teams use now are all relievers. You can't make as many pitching changes if you don't have as many pitchers.


Sure. Extra position players don’t bother me.

If you do that, pitchers might pitch more and runs might go up without lowering the mound.
