Source: World Baseball Classic adopts extra-inning rule - ESPN I'm sorry, but I thought we were worried about which team was the best rather than finishing in time for people to watch their favorite TV shows or to beat traffic? This two runner rule is extremely annoying to me and it has to be to the statiscians who I bet would argue that a pitcher who gives up those two runners shouldn't be charged with runs because they didn't put them there in the first place. I understand wanting to end a long game, but if you can't beat a team in 11 innings, you're either evenly matched or choking. I don't see a need for this rule beyond a bunch of the higher paid players complaining that they're "fatigued". As for the pitch limitations, I don't really understand them either. If a guy can go 150 pitches before he wants out and still play well, then let him! Obviously, it's the manager's discretion, but still why put pitch limits? You play your best men! I am glad however that they're adopting the video replay rules and helmet rules. Other than that, this is a load of shit. What do you think?
