The MLB's new "bonafide" slide rule has already had an affect on the outcome of several games in the early season. The league needs to realize that the timing and the overall rule change itself has negatively impacted the way Americans view the sport already and how they could see it in the future.
It's an even year, and that means the Giants are a lock to win it all, right? It appears they may be set up to do so for the 4th straight even year. It all depends on if the pitching can improve on what it did last year by a fairly large margin.
