Because it's just a matter of time before we see the Twins do it in the big leagues.
I'm all for this. It seems to make total sense.
Even as young kid, I remember wondering about the current paradigm.
When playing the Angels, for example, in any one given game, how are you most likely to win? Contain Mike Trout. How are you most likely to keep Trout hitless? Throw your 3-4 best pitchers available at him, don't let him face the same guy twice, change the location from which the call leaves the pitchers hand as much as possible.
Same for nearly any other good team. If you hold Francisco Lindor hitless in a series against Cleveland, you'll probably win it (or at least make it much more likely).
They'd definitely need to figure out a way to not slow the game down any more, but I think we'll see this.
