@PostMasterGeneral they could enforce the rules that are already on the books about how fast pitchers have to go, but they don't wanna

@john

That's only part of the problem. If batters stayed in the frickin box instead of going walkabout after every pitch, things would clip right along.

@PostMasterGeneral that's the same rule, though. the pitcher has no obligation to wait for the batter to step back in the box unless the batter has requested permission from the umpire and the umpire has granted it

@john

They should start imposing limits on how often batters can call time.

@PostMasterGeneral umpires already have zero obligation to grant a request for "time," batters just always assume it will be granted and umpires allow them to get away with it.

the unwritten "rules" of baseball have more force than the gd written rules.

@PostMasterGeneral i mean, fair, it's their fault. they are responsible for enforcing the rules, and they are not doing that.
