The season is three days old and this rule change is already creating havoc. This is what happens when you let owners come up with a plan to “do something” about a couple of injuries, without taking some serious time to evaluate the impact on the game. For what it’s worth, it was probably the correct call under the new rule, but they have totally taken away the possibility of doing much to break up double-plays.
I’m not sure more double-plays is going to make baseball more interesting.
