MLB Rule changes for 2019: Relief Pitchers be damned!

It’s a manager’s worst nightmare. No control over who can pitch. This year in MLB, relief pitchers who come into the game MUST pitch to 3 hitters or to completion of the inning. No more lefty to lefty or righty to righty matchups for each hitter in a close game in the eighth inning. Relief pitchers better get outs.

And to Gabe Kapler: No more positional players pitching unless you’re into extra innings. Scott Kingery pitching comes to mind…

And that pitch clock – gone.

Thank God.

Read up on more rule changes to speed up a game that is too short all ready.
