Furthermore, the number of pitchers a club can carry on the active roster will be capped at a certain number, to be decided by the aforementioned joint committee. To adhere to that rule, clubs will have to designate each of their players as either a pitcher or a position player prior to each player’s first day on the active roster for a given season. That designation cannot change for the remainder of the season. Position players will not be allowed to pitch except in the following scenarios:

• They are designated as a “Two-Way Player.” A player can only qualify for this designation if he accrues at least 20 Major League innings pitched and at least 20 Major League games started as a position player or designated hitter (with at least three plate appearances in each of those games) in either the current or the prior season.

• Extra innings.

• In any game in which his team is losing or winning by more than six runs when he enters as a pitcher.

3 batters in a game is a lot.

I understand wanting to limit pitching changes within an inning, but if the inning ends before the guy faces 3 batters, they should be able to change pitchers no matter what. They shouldn't have to bring him out again for the next inning and then possibly replace him in the middle of the next inning, wasting even more time.

The more I think about this, the dumber it is.

Suppose the other team has runners on first and third. I bring in a new pitcher and he gives up a hard hit double on the first pitch scoring 2 runs. Now I have to leave him in with a runner on second for the next two batters even though he obviously doesn't have it. That's just gay and may even make the game take longer.

They were basically running a sort of 8man rotation and constantly putting healthyish pitchers on the 10-day DL to rest them and sub in another arm.

It was well done on their part. They have a lot of good but fragile guys like Hill, Ryu, others.

It was so 180.

In 2018 Dodgers had like 7 avg-above avg starters in:

Kershaw

Buehler

Hill

Ryu

Maeda

Wood

Stripling

then w/ a dropoff to

Ferguson/Santana (spot starts here & there)

This year they still have:

Kershaw

Buehler

Hill

Ryu

Maeda

Stripling

Urias (somehow back from a shoulder surgery throwing 94-97)

and Dustin May in the minors, a top 50ish prospect

Cap on the number of pitchers is far better than the 3 batter rule. If you put the cap at say 10 pitchers, then teams will have to make a hard strategic choice whether to carry a LOOGY. Additionally, the pitcher cap will make it more important for starters to go longer into games given the smaller bullpens. Tampa’s opener strategy would be harder to pull off.

I don't know that it will. I guess teams would actually be MORE likely to split up left handers in the lineup, so you couldn't bring in left-handed reliever for one inning.

If a guy clearly sucks, you shouldn't be forced to leave him out there to give up hits based on this dumb rule.

If the inning ends, you should be able to take him out.

If he allows a batter to reach base, you should also be able to take him out. Then I could maybe get on board with it.

Bums getting shelled is great. Usually pitchers don't get pulled after one shitty AB anyway (unless they were already going to get pulled due to lefty/righty matchups)

Lol at all this retarded fussing around the margins that will have shitty unintended consequences and maybe save 5 minutes per game. There is so much dead time during games -- between pitches, between batters, and during pitching changes. Number of pitching changes itself isn't bad, it's the warming up on the mound. Allow 30 seconds for mound visits from manager (clock starts when the visit is declared, so those fat ass managers had better get a move on). Allow 30 seconds to run in from the pen and take a warm-up pitch. No more time for visits from catchers or position players.
