  • "There's no interpreters/cryin' in baseball!"

    Not to play devil's advocate here but Jerry Remy's remarks regarding translators being allowed onto the mound for in-game conferences seem to have a valid point.
    How many times has the MLB changed the rules regarding players whose first language is Spanish to have interpreters during the game? Along those same lines, how many native Spanish speaking players have learned the 'language of baseball' before they've learned to speak English?
    In the season where the intentional walk has been reduced to a batter just walking to first without having to stand at the plate while the pitcher throws random outside pitches in order to 'save time', the extra time needed to have an extraneous translator walk out to the mound and basically repeat what the coach/catcher has to say to the pitcher seems to not 'save time'. Come on MLB-make up your mind!
    On the other hand, translators or not, let the game play itself. Regardless of the advertising billions that are in flux and the 'time limits' of national television.
    A baseball game, IMO, (and that of the immortal George Carlin) should not have a time limit. Extra innings are a bonus to be savored. Time saved at a baseball park means extra time to find where you parked your car.
