Why They Need the Rule Change in Baseball

leave a comment »

Believe me, I’m no Giants fan, but as a baseball fan and as a human being, I hate to see Buster Posey have his year ended because he got run over like he was playing in the NFL, rather than MLB. The rule on sliding at home plate needs to revert back to the Little League rules: Everyone must slide or you’re out. If you don’t slide and you end a guys season, then you’re suspended for the same amount of time. If you don’t think so, I give you Pete Rose as Exhibit A. Rose is as arrogant as they come, but it’s really too much to have the guy tell us that “fans expect you to bust your ass” in an All-Star game. Ah, no! They expect you to go hard and slide in a meaningless exhibition all-star game, not ruin Ray Fosse’s career. Buster Posey and all other catchers henceforth deserve better.
