MLB agrees to make extra inning runner on second base rule permanent


Recommended Posts

First, I'm not a fan of this. I don't think there was ever anything wrong with extra innings pre-2020, and it sucks we need to change this part of the game to appease the "games are like too slow, man" crowd.

But, being as this is the permanent rule now, I wonder if it will affect rosters a bit. Given that we're now at 26 players on the roster, I wonder if some teams will switch to carrying one really high end pinch runner instead of the extra pitcher that most teams tend to use that extra spot for. Like does this rule along with the 26 man roster make the Jarrod Dyson's of the world just a bit more valuable?

I doubt any team puts a player on the bench to show up 6 times a season at most.

Most teams average about 12-13 extra inning games per year, which makes it worth considering in my opinion. Just one extra dude with blazing speed and maybe one more skill (probably defense).

Probably my least favorite of the new rules. Playground nonsense

Reminds me of the shootout in the NHL. They play an entire game five-on-five, five minutes of three-on-three, then they resort to essentially penalty shots to decide who wins? Seems minor league to me.

This might be a good thread to ask who all was here for that 19 inning game in 2014? I actually was out in Anaheim on vacation for that series and was there that night. I remember the agony of the Angels kept getting runners on and not getting them in. But now that those games have been taken away what a memory now.
