The Players Union Drops To Manfred's Level Of Stupidity And Disregard For Baseball: All Doubleheader Games Will Be 7 Innings (Starting Saturday)

... because science tells us the virus is much more contagious from the eighth inning on.

Well, it turns out it's not only Commissioner Rob Manfred who has an insatiable desire to turn baseball into an utter joke. MLBPA Executive Director Tony Clark brought forth a proposal that all doubleheader games this season be reduced to seven innings, and MLB agreed.

While there are no planned doubleheaders on the schedule, making up postponed games because of current (and, no doubt, future) SARS-CoV-2 outbreaks and bad weather and probably locusts and frogs falling from the sky, there will be several twinbills over the next two months.

And, yes ... the Extra Inning Bullshit ("EIB") will start in the eighth inning of those games.

I can definitely see the EIB and seven-inning DHs becoming permanent. This is how it starts.


Let's see how the Chances Of MLB Driving Me Away From Baseball Forever Index is doing . . . It has increased to 30%.
