The MLB has Approved Changing the Intentional Walk Rule

Twitter broadcasted a number of National Football League games last season.

Manfred indicated Tuesday more changes could be on the way to accelerate games.

Witnesses have reported a fiery explosion, and plumes of thick smoke can be seen. "Felt like a bomb had gone off", he added. Tuesday's crash wasn't the first time that tragedy has struck Essendon Airport but thankfully it isn't a common occurrence.

"I have great respect for the labor relations process, and I have a pretty good track record for getting things done with the MLBPA", Manfred said. He said a coach visiting the mound or a pitcher throwing to base can be a strategic decision by a team to give players time to warm up or save their arms.

"I'm just wondering, at what point do we just keep the game, the game?" And Manfred, in particular, made it clear this is an area he sees as being worth fighting for - threatening to use unilateral powers to make changes beginning in 2018. "I'm committed to the idea that we have a set of proposals out there and we continue to discuss those proposals in private". This was one of the areas Major League Baseball studied in terms of speeding up the game, with an adjustment to the strike zone being another, per Bryant.
