How long will owners tolerate their multi-million dollar hitters injuring themselves on unnecessary home run trots? Personally, I can't STAND to see the likes of Jose Guillen plod their way around the bases. They are paid to HIT!
Don't tell me about strategy or playing the whole game, either. There is nothing more boring than watching a manager decide whether or not to use a pinch-runner. I'd like to see 50-man rosters to eliminate that useless nonsense and get baseball back to where it should be - nine guys swinging as hard as they can to hit the ball as far as they can, and have someone else who can't hit run for them.
