  • Report: Universal DH, 3-batter minimum for pitchers among proposed rule changes

Amid rising tensions between Major League Baseball and the MLB Player's Association, the two sides have been meeting about some major rule changes that could fundamentally alter many aspects of baseball as we know it.

Depending on where you fall in this debate, you're either thrilled or still upset over Rob Manfred's decision to deny the players request of the DH in the National League.

Larger issues such as the DH and changes to the amateur draft will be for talks to determine the next collective bargaining agreement.

Major League Baseball has proposed that a team not be allowed to bring in a reliever until the previous pitcher has faced three batters or an inning ends. Shoot, Manfred even passed on the opportunity to bash Scott Boras and his fellow agents when a trouble-stirring reporter (OK, it was me) asked whether it was a bad look for the game to have superstar free agents Bryce Harper and Manny Machado unsigned so close to the start of spring training. The proposal is viewed as a countermeasure to what the union argues is manipulation of service time to keep top prospects under team control.

Trump says summit with North Korea's Kim will be in Hanoi
In the course of negotiations with the Trump administration, North Korea has not launched a missile since November 2017. North Korea has been known to parade its missiles through the streets and has aggressively pursued a nuclear program.

Manfred first proposed the pitch clock before last season but the idea was shot down by players.

While it's unlikely that we will see some of these new rules get put into play this year, there's a strong chance that by 2020 we could see a whole new game. "I think that there are pieces of their response on the on-field proposal that were very encouraging". "I wish they were signed and ready to go".

Two changes created to shorten games are still on the table for 2019, according to the AP. "They are different in kind than the type of playing-rule changes that we have out there", Manfred said.

After three straight years of drops that left Major League Baseball attendance at its lowest since 2003, Manfred said it is too early to speculate about 2019. "I think that we recognize that the media landscape is changing quickly and if somebody is going to be managing that changing landscape, we just as soon that it be us", Manfred said.
