I loathe the idea of ties too, but if you gave me the choice of ties after 12 or this current crap, give me ties all day.

If they agreed to ties, would then MLB go to a standings point based system similar to the NHL?

I hadn't thought it through, but baseball isn't a continuous sport the way hockey is; teams can't give up runs in a failed attempt to score themselves. So that probably wouldn't be necessary - which isn't to say it might not still happen.

All have some variation of a person on 2nd, but some come with an out. Some come with a 1-1 count. Some have bases loaded and 2 outs. I don't mind tournaments handling it differently, but can we stop shouting "CALIFORNIA RULES!!!" then explaining to the coaches what your interpretation is that day?


I'd like to think this is all the result of some maniac who is just screaming about how big a fan of California he is.

it was all Anthony Kiedis's idea
