I just read this potential rule change on Twitter and I am intrigued:
For those who may be unable to see embedded tweets:
The most interesting rule change for MLB I've heard so far is a proposal that a team can have a DH for as long as the SP is in the game.I haven't gamed it out all of the way, but I think it would have some interesting effects.
This would discourage pulling your starting pitchers so early. It was also suggested in the replies that each new pitcher could require a new DH, which would discourage frequent cycling through relievers too. So the DH would basically be a permanent PH for that pitcher -- but once that pitcher is out of the game, you'd need to pick another DH or let the pitcher bat.
What do you all think? I don't hate relief pitching but it would be nice to incentivize leaving a guy like Snell in the game longer.
