Association engaged in a back-and-forth regarding potential rules changes to improve pace of play and discussed other measures Mookie Wilson Jersey , including a universal designated hitter and requiring pitchers to face at least three batters before being removed from a game.Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported the news, noting MLB made a proposal to the players' union Jan. 14 that included the three-batter minimum rule. The union responded Friday with a proposal that included a plan for the National League to adopt the designated hitter as soon as the 2019 season.According to Rosenthal, "further ideas and potential tradeoffs are certain to be explored in the weeks ahead" as both sides look for ways to improve the sport and draw bigger audiences.One notable part of the Players Association's response was aimed at competitive integrity and suggested teams' draft positions could be lowered if they do not win a set amount of games during a series of seasons.That would, in theory, provide a disincentive for tanking and stripping down major league rosters to improve draft positioning as a rebuilding method for struggling clubs.Rosenthal noted the failure to reach an agreement would give Commissioner Rob Manfred power to implement three of his proposals from last year. That power was collectively bargained, and the proposals were a 20-second pitch clock, decreasing a team's mound visits from six to five per game and a rule that would put a runner on second base in the 11th inning and beyond in the All-Star Game and spring training contests.MLB's most recent proposal called for mound visits to be reduced to four as soon as this season and three in 2020.Pace of play has been a significant talking point in recent years, especially as times of games have increased. According to Baseball Reference, the last seven seasons ranked among the top eight in baseball history for longest average game.The 2017 campaign set a record with games averaging three hours, eight minutes http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-lenny-dykstra-jersey , while the 2018 season landed third (three hours, four minutes).Proposals such as a pitch clock, fewer mound visits and longer pitching stints would surely decrease the time of games, while a universal designated hitter would likely result in more balls in play and further excitement for fans. PHOENIX (AP) — Mike Moustakas fell one win shy of reaching the World Series with the Milwaukee Brewers.“I think we had some unfinished business after last year,” Moustakas said Tuesday after finalizing a $10 million, one-year deal with the Brewers. “I loved playing here last year. It was a lot of fun. We fell a little bit short, obviously, but I feel like this team can get back to where we were at last year and make a push for the World Series.”After Milwaukee won the NL Central for the first time since 2011, Brewers chairman Mark Attanasio and his front office have boosted payroll to a team-record of nearly $130 million. They added catcher Yasmani Grandal for an $18.25 million, one-year deal last month and then made the surprise move to keep Moustakas.“Our ownership group is committed to providing the resources to do the best absolutely job we can Gary Carter Jersey ,” Attanasio said. “I’m very excited for what this team can do this year.”Moustakas gets a $7 million salary this year under the deal, which includes an $11 million mutual option for 2020 with a $3 million buyout.He rejected a $17.4 million qualifying offer from Kansas City after the 2017 season and returned to the Royals in mid-March for a one-year contract that included a guaranteed $6.5 million, then earned an additional $2.2 million in performance bonuses.The infielder hit .256 with eight homers and 33 RBIs in 54 games for Milwaukee, which acquired him from the last-place Royals on July 27. A 30-year-old left-handed hitter, Moustakas had a .251 average overall with 28 homers and 95 RBIs last year. He struck out for the final out of the NL Championship Series loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers.“Once that contract’s signed, I’m ready to go to work,” Moustakas said. “This is what I live for, this is why I play this game — to come out here and hang out with these guys and go win a championship. I can’t wait to get back on the field and start doing that again.”Attanasio and general manager David Stearns did not indicate how much flexibility the Brewers had to add payroll as the July 31 trade deadline approaches.“We certainly got a little more aggressive this year in free agency than we probably anticipated at the front end of the offseason but that was due to the opportunities presented to us,” Stearns said. “We may have to take that into account in July, but we’ll see where we are at that point and make our plans then.”Attanasio has never shied away from spending when his team is in a position to make a significant improvement. Should the Brewers need help come July Dwight Gooden Jersey , he plans to be ready.“The chips are all in now,” he said. “But we’ll find the money at midseason if we need to.”In addition to his base salary, Moustakas would earn $100,000 for winning the Most Valuable Player Award, $75,000 if he finishes second, $50,000 for third, $50,000 for making an All-Star team Keith Hernandez Jersey , winning a Silver Slugger, Comeback Player of the Year, the Hank Aaron Award or the World Series MVP, and $25,000 for a Gold Glove or the League Championship Series MVP.
