Is Major League Baseball really considering this drastic rule change?

posted by Gary Cee -

A report is circulating that major league baseball is considering a new rule that would allow a trailing team to bat any player in the ninth inning.  Sorry, but this is a ridiculous idea.

Why even consider this?  Some folks insist that baseball needs a shake-up.  But that's the problem right there.  The game doesn't need a shake-up.  It doesn't need to be sped up.  It doesn't need to penalize a leading team heading into the ninth inning.   

Thankfully, this report is only being "whispered" about right now.

The New York Daily News has the story.
