Friday August 15th, 2014

MLB named a new commissioner Thursday and Keith Olbermann has decided to ignore the vote and pretend it elected him. That led to him rattling off a list of new rules to make "America's Pastime" into America's pastime again.

On the way out under commissioner Olbermann is interleague play, chewing tobacco, the designated hitter and late night World Series games.

New rules include strict enforcement of the 20-seconds-between-pitches rule and PED penalties, and Vin Scully calling all World Series games.

The ESPN host will also bring on Bob Costas and Pete Rose as deputy commissioners, and Chrissy Teigen as AL president.

You may not agree with all of these, but it doesn't seem that it would make the game worse.
