Forget Replay-Baseball Needs To Institute This New Rule Change Right Away- Bruce’s Thought Of The Day
While mostly simpletons in my view argue enhanced replay in baseball and how needed it is I have a better suggestion that has more effect on teams then a couple of bad calls that may or may not happen. Baseball should, starting next year, institute a new rule on rained out games...
