FanPost Friday: How would you fix baseball if you were commissioner?

It might not be broken, but things could be better.

It’s safe to say that almost every time MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred does something to improve the game or tries to expedite pace of place, it is met with near universal derision among fans.

Leading into the abbreviated 2020 season, this became more evident than ever, as Manfred struggled to make a season happen, and then almost immediately dropped the ball by not taking COVID infections as seriously as he should have.

But coronavirus aside, I think most of us watch Manfred work and quietly think “I could do a better job than him.” Perhaps it’s wishful thinking, and none of us are likely to ever get a chance to test out our theories, but in today’s FanPost prompt, you can have a chance to explain what you would do to make baseball better.

It can be a rule change to the game itself: ie. permanent DH, or abolish the DH altogether. Or it can be related to fan experience: ie. make tickets free for kids under eight to promote families coming to games.

Whatever rules you would come up with, take them over to the FanPost link, select “New FanPost” on the left, and tell us what your commissioner legacy would be.
