Discussion: HR rule - why????

ooooooh

Hey PattyMac...sounds like Marv19 is another one of those "complete player"!!

Marv19, when you get up to bat, pull out your HOT senior bat, swing as hard as you can at that 44/375 ball and when you hit that 120 ft "seed" of yours and reach 1st base, get yourself a runner so you can go sit back on the bench and finish knitting that sac for your softballs!

GArocket, I would have to say that all of us that are still playing at our age are athletes, some of us are even "true" athletes like you! All of us will adapt to the new rules but that shouldn't stop us from voicing our opinions on the new rules, should it? Just my humble opinion!

PattyMac,
Had you not hit your 80 HRs in Vegas we wouldn't be going through this! I place all the blame on you!

Maybe you should only workout twice a week and learn to dink the ball and become a "complete player", that way Mr. 400 won't be so jealous of you! Just sayin.....lol

PattyMac,
Keep swinging the bat! Let Mr 400 (batting avg, I'm sure) get lucking every now and then and hit a HR! He can then pat himself on the back and feel like a "complete player"! It always goes back to the "complete player" or "brings defense back to the game" statements! Everybody in Major / Major + can hit the ball and we all play pretty damn good defense, so there no reason to "bring defensive play" back to the game....it's been there all along! All you non-belivers, just come and watch a game or two and see!
Who are the HR's hurting, anyways? Remember, a team can only score 5-7 runs an inning as it is (save the last inning, the open inning)! Keeps shots in the middle down and pitchers from being forced to wear masks!

BAD decision.....This rule change by the SSUSA knowingly puts the pitchers in a more dangerous situation, hence, the mandatory face mask rule.
How about giving the teams a few more HRs to hit (say, like, 10 in Majors) then a 2-up equalizer? Won't take all the middle shots away, but it would help! Any other thoughts or ideas out there....would like to hear'em!

I agree 100% with JBTexas & LP!!
Pitchers are already a "target" and making it the rule that a pitcher has to wear a mask makes them even more of one! Not a smart rule change! Having the pitchers sign a consent wavier seem to be working just fine! Why make pitching more of a risk by adding the mask to those who would rather not wear one?
What's going to happen when an infielder takes a bad hop to the face? Rule change....now all infielders have to wear masks? What happens when an infielder takes a bad hop to his sac? Rule change....all infielder now have to wear jocks and cups? We all know the risks, let us make the decisions to wear or not to wear protective gear!
Believe it or not, the now chanced "HR rule" protected the pitcher from hits up the middle....but, that's another subject....
