It’s official! Baseball is coming back in less than a month and we get our Dodgers back in our lives. Clint and Brook break down the biggest new rules and important notes for the upcoming shortened 2020 season. Plus we react to some of those rules with 4-timer guest Ross Stripling!
Included in the new rules for the season is the universal designated hitter, big extra innings alterations, and a big opportunity for pitchers to cheat with a to-be-implemented wet rag for moisture to mitigate going to the mouth. Strip shares his thoughts on the DH and how it affects teams on both sides of the ball.
On the talk of the new extra innings rule, the guys work to greatly refine what the changes should look like — including adding to Justin Turner’s home run derby idea.
Playing Debbie Downer’s, there are also real-world issues set to cause concerns for baseball’s less-than-triumphant return. Nationwide COVID spikes all but guarantees a fair amount of players will likely test positive for the virus when officially checking into spring training 2.0. However, Brook says don’t immediately panic.
Finally, we discuss some fun or easy things that we’d like to see changed or added to the season. That plus too much Brook mustache talk.
