    Today's Trivia

    Who can tell me what Collin Cowhill has in common with all-time Met great Cleon Jones, who hit .340 in 1969 and caught the last out of the World Series that year?
    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    Ya gotta do better than that Sick. I was actually thinking of qualifying the question but then i thought, nah.

    But fine. It's also not that their first names have two syllables, start with C and end with N.

    Geez.

    It actually puts a player at a double disadvantage. As a batter of course, you're starting further away from first base. And as a fielder, you're limited to pitcher, first base, and outfield.

    I always thought they should change the rules to allow runners to run clockwise whenever there's a right handed hitter up. That will keep the runners and fielders sharp since they have to remember which direction the runners will be running in. And if gives lefties a chance to play the infield positions.

    Now how exciting would that be!

    A runner on first base would have to move to the base across the diamond whenever a right handed hitter came up. Likewise a runner on third since third base would become first and vice versa!

    I'm thinking they should try out these new rules in the WBC.

    Thoughts?
