Rob Manfred has shown an aptitude to make drastic changes in the sports since taking over as the Commissioner a year ago in the MLB. The new agenda is to have both the American League and National League playing by the same rules. Purists will hate the adopting the DH, as is their disdain for the Designated Hitter in the AL. They will say they should eliminate that position. There should be no solution but status quo

Rob Manfred gave an interview where some of the slow decisions by baseball made me happy, others did not.

Plus I seem to always be in danger of erasing my apps.

It is a dragging your feet episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Just ask the Cardinals of the 1970s.
