fire Rob Manfred 

Post#1 » by Neddy » Tue Feb 28, 2017 4:11 am

is there anything we can do as fans to get Rob Manfred fired? even a Japanese baseball columnist Kimura wrote in length about the ridiculous nature of automatic intentional walk, and with him talking about even potentially cutting the game down to 7 innings, we have got to find a way to get rid of this guy before he turns baseball into blernsball. I am seriously thinking about sending hate letters to Rob Manfred's office everyday until he is gone, but I don't see it doing much good for the cause. I also thought about starting an online petition, but I don't know enough people around me who loves baseball like I do to get it going with any real momentum. but there must be somebody who is connected enough on social media to make the petition go viral...

any suggestions what we can do? we must save the best game that ever was created on this earth before a lawyer with no baseball background ruins the game and burn it down to the ground.

just a motivational quote from you know what

"Ray, people will come Ray. They'll come to Iowa for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up your driveway not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at your door as innocent as children, longing for the past. Of course, we won't mind if you look around, you'll say. It's only $20 per person. They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it: for it is money they have and peace they lack. And they'll walk out to the bleachers; sit in shirtsleeves on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they have reserved seats somewhere along one of the baselines, where they sat when they were children and cheered their heroes. And they'll watch the game and it'll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come Ray. The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come."

hate this move so much as well.

If you can't watch the pitcher throw the ball 4 times to a catcher, why the **** are we catering to your needs in the first place?

Not like intentional walk even happen that often. Some games it doesn't happen at all. Do people really have that short attention spans that they can't handle 4 pitches? Like , why is this a thing?

I still can't figure this one out. Never heard anyone ever complain about the intentional walk slowing down the game.

that's what happens when lawyers with no baseball background gets to run things. did Manfred ever play this game at any level? as far as I know, he didn't even play a litle league ball. this is a total disgrace.
