Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner has an idea that he believes will keep baseball fans engaged at the end of games. Turner, while speaking with Spectrum SportsNet on Wednesday proposed the idea to end tied baseball games with a HR Derby instead of continuing the game into extra innings. "This is my opportunity to push for a home run derby in extra innings. Instead of playing 17 innings, you get one extra inning, you play the 10th inning, and no one scores, then you go to a home run derby. You take each team's three best hitters and you give them all five outs and see who hits the most homers." SI's Robin Lundberg shares thoughts on Turner's idea and whether or not it would be good for MLB.
