BLOG: No Beer In The Clubhouse?

C’mon man really? Baseball has many problems but should banning beer from MLB clubhouses be atop the list? According to Joe Torre it is. Because the Red Sox had clubhouse problems and took a dump in September you’re going to change the rules for everyone? How about letting men decide for themselves? Isn’t that Boston’s problem?

They just don’t “get it”.  How about a few of these ideas first?

  1. Speed up the game, if you can carry on a complete conversation during any sporting event that should be a red flag that it’s too slooooow…
  2. Shorten the regular season and expand the playoffs, we endure 162 games through Spring, Summer and Fall only to have a quick playoff to the World Series.
  3. Realign the divisions so it’s more competitive or at least play a balanced schedule. Playing the Yankees, Red Sox and Rays more than anyone else is just ridiculous.
  4. Lastly, How about INSTANT REPLAY? Umps are blowing calls in the current World Series and we’ve seen a perfect game ruined last year. The technology exists…use it.

A few of these changes might actually make the game fun again
