    heres a few of my list


    eliminate dh, it's not real baseball

    batters could only step out of the batters box once per at bat

    get rid of most interleague play, maybe have it once a year and that's it

    makes fines less hefty for charging pitcher, the more fights the better

    eliminate guaranteed money contracts, you earn when you play

    eliminate that new wild card

    time clock for pitchers

    no pitches for intentional walk

    DH both leagues

    tie after 12 innings are played

    expand playoffs to 4 more teams

    revenue sharing among all teams equally like NFL

    I'm a BB genius

    Don't allow small market owners to pocket revenue sharing. They have to put it into the team or build up a war chest of cash if they don't
    use it the season they get it on signing players.

    I like it. You shouldn't miss the playoffs if you're one of the top teams in the league while some shitty teams gets in because they're in a weak division.

    no pitches for intentional walk wouldn't work, pitchers would just pitch around, and why don't you like the intentional walk, never heard that before

    I like making them throw the four balls. I've seen wild pitches on occasion. I'm sure they feel more pressure throwing those intentional walk throws than an actual pitch.

    Reorganize & pool all the existing players into either a Caucasian league, a Negro League, A Beaner league, or a Chink league ...and have the winners of each league play each other in a playoff tournament in the post season ...The final two teams vying to call themselves the Champion of All Races
