I know the way to eliminate defensive shifts.

I won't even say it because it will insult your intelligence.

I mean, I'm sticking with the game I love no matter what, but this is truly ridiculous to even think about:

 " 'For example,'  Manfred volunteered, 'things like eliminating shifts, I would be open to those sorts of ideas.' When Ravech pressed, Manfred confirmed that yes, he was talking about defensive shifts — the practice of positioning fielders in places where ground balls are likely to go — and that yes, he was open to outlawing them for the good of the game."

Wee Willie Keeler just spun in his grave.
