Also, lowering the mound was one of the greatest disgraces in baseball, probably equal to PEDs. The only difference is PEDs ****ed the entiretly of history whereas lowering the mound only really ****ed Bob Gibson so there was less outrage (because we can't have nigras throwing 1.12! That ain't right!).

I basically oppose all rule changes ever made in baseball, including the Ray Chapman rule that prohibited pitchers from being able to throw a 95 mile per hour, dark brown, egg shaped hunk of fast-breaking tar and spit covered shit straight at a batters face but at least I can understand why they did that. I disagree, but I understand.

This, there is no reason for this. This is seriously the worst thing to happen to baseball since Hideo Nomo got his nose under the tent and let the yellow menace into the game. Nowadays you see them winning awards and playing in the all star game like everything is just la-dee-da and they've been here all along.

Keep in mind that Scram has a huge sentimental/traditionalist streak when it comes to baseball, being change adverse should be expected. The fact is that blocking hte plate is such a tiny percentage of the game, compared to, say, the DH, or mound height. I think it's much ado about very little.

I think he was just reiterating himself, since I essentially confirmed he is completely correct.

If it were up to me, we'd go back to the 1904 rule book and the game would played like that under penalty of law.

The MLB lost Buster Posey for a year due to a home plate collision. They are now so far on the negative side of the "overall excitement gained/lost due to home plate collisions" ledger, that they will never get back in the black.

I don't watch baseball to see collisions at home so good call by MLB. You can't impede a base runners progress the rest of the way so why have they allowed it at home all this time? Anyway good for baseball and it helps protect catchers.

As soon as we lose our franchise catcher and I want him to get hurt, they pull this. Notice that the league never gave a **** when the Yankees had that scrub Russell Martin on the line. Fishy, fishy timing.
12. When menstruating, use a product that right for your menstrual flow. A tampon too big can irritate and develop fungus. A product left in too long can cause bacteria or fungus build up. Products can be changed at least every 4 hours. Except when sleeping, they can be left in for the night
