Because baseball can never look at itself and be happy, September has once again brought us grumbles over roster expansion late in the season, as if it is a real and true problem that must Michael Brantley Jersey be addre sed, lest the game wither into a memory of American culture. Its not always there in the substance of what is said, but you can tell from the tone.It's worth repeating: There were 142 pitchers used in 15 MLB games last night (with only one extra-inning game). Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) September 13, 2016Maybe it is worth repeating that there were 142 pitchers used in 15 games on Monday, but if its worth repeating, its because its cool. Mondays games featured 15 pitchers appearing in the major leagues for career appearances in the single digits. These are minor leaguers who are being rewarded at the end of the year with a taste of life in the bigs, and seeing what they can do against Jim Thome Cool Base White Jersey the best competition in the world.MORE: Baseball's 12 ugliest September collapses ever, rankedJose De Leon of the Dodgers in his second game, Reynaldo Lopez of the Nationals in his seventh and Ariel Miranda of the Mariners in his ninth all were winning pitchers on Monday. Its exciting to see the next wave of talent in the major leagues ahead of time, even for contending teams.The current system is not perfect. Teams should be playing each other with rosters of equal size, which is not always the case, especially in early September when some teams prospects are still playing in minor league playoffs. What is not a problem is giving managers more pitchers to choose from, especially in baseballs current climate of arm injuries. At the end of the season, it makes sense to have extra pitchers on hand who can lighten the load and contribute innings.Strategically, there is a difference between September roster usage and the rest of the Jason Kipnis Jersey year, but the claim that baseball is ill served by playing under different sets of rules is undermined by the four-decade presence of the designated hitter in the American League while pitchers hit in the National League. How important can standardization really be when the World Series has different rules based on which ballpark the games are in, and the advantage for Game 7 is determined by a midsummer exhibition?The average game on Monday lasted 3:06, six minutes longer than the major league average for the season. The games on Monday also averaged 10.27 runs, well up from the season average of 8 Trevor Bauer 2018 MLB All-Star Game Jersey .50 a reason for both the usage of more pitchers and more time being taken up.MORE: MLB mangers ranked, 1-30The i sue of September rosters is highlighted this year because it is time to negotiate a new collective bargaining agreement. Its worth thinking about how to make things more equitable, but the general principle of having minor leaguers come up at the end of the year is worthwhile and should not be scrapped.The solution that still makes the most sense is one that has been around for a long time, promoted by Orioles manager Buck Showalter and many others: teams should declare a 25-man roster before either each game or each series. It would allow for a few extra matchup scenarios, because you would be taking somewhere from two to Cleveland Indians Alternate Jerseys four starting pitchers off the roster, but generally would leave the game as is, while also allowing those young players to get a look. Its a fair compromise between those who see expanded rosters as no problem at all and those who see them as a pox on the game.
