So if you use up all 6, you cant pull the pitcher anymore?

That would maybe be in the 40s on the list of things I'd suggest to limit game times.

Also a new rule for 2018, Frank is limited to 6 Cubs related posts per day.

Constantly tweaking the rules has made the game longer.

Sounds like from a practical standpoint it isn't really much of a change at all. Especially if the plate umps grant a lot of leeway regarding "cross-ups".

Incremental step to ruining baseball. Rob Manfred is a traitor to this sport and the USA.

Is in 6 for 9 innings? What if the game goes 18 innings and you used them up after 8 innings?

Sorry. They covered it. You get one per each extra inning.

So if a pitcher is removed that does not count towards the 6. It is only 6 visits where there is no change made

That has to be the case. Sometimes you use 7 pitchers in a game. No way they would tell you you can't use a new pitcher after the 6th one. Or you can't use a 4th pitcher in a game because you made 3 mound visits to talk to the other pitchers.

No what fuck the game up is saber metrics the more pitches you see bullshit. More pitches seen= longer games

Just do the minor league thing and start calling strikes if a guy is going to fuck around for 30 seconds at the plate in between pitches. Stop granting them time out when there is no reason for it.

So when Willie Contreas comes out 6 times in the first inning, what happens when he tries to come out in the 2nd? Automatic Ball?

Probably a forced pitching change.

They should install pitch clocks behind home plate. 7 seconds per pitch. Failure to abide means the batter gets to hit a ball off a tee. The clocks should be sponsored by Rolex. I know jorr is down with this.

i didn't know they were doing that but that's exactly what my dad was saying should happen. excessive mound visits = a ball is called; excessive glove adjusting = a strike is called.

That would make the most sense. Rather than fines or ejections, this would hurt the team and managers and GM's would not stand for it.
