    i don't mind 7 inning double headers, but the runner on 2nd, I don't get. I'd rather they do something like start the at bat off with two balls in the count already to give the hitters an extra advantage, rather than just sticking some guy on 2nd.

    The traditional double header has been dead for a long time in MLB. Back to back games with a quick shower in between and a uniform change for the same price. Its now called day/ night double header and they clear the stadium and charge seperate or honor tics from rain delays etc. I just think the 7 inning thing is a pussy move. Baseball is 9 innings.

    To be honest, does anyone but absolute die hards want to sit through two nine inning games on the same day?

    Haha not many die hards left in anything anymore. My old man would only go to double headers. The stadium always ran out of soda and beer. God forbid they went into extra innings. There was a double header on Mothers Day in Baltimore 1966 in which Frank Robinson hit a moonshot out of the park fair into the parking lot that broke a car window. No film or video or steriods. I was there.

    The 7 inning double header is smart for this year. Look at what the Cardinals schedule looks like now.

    Yeah, I can deal with some of this shit this year, but it better not become the “new normal” as has become the latest “saying we’re sick of already”

    Play by the fucking rules that have worked just fine for many many years
