Facebook, MLB In Talks To LiveStream This Season's Games For Free

MLB Players Association has agreed to the change "as part of a broader discussion" about pace of play, the outlets reported Wednesday.
The new rule will end the four pitches used to intentionally walk a batter, replaced by a manager signaling to the home plate umpire for the walk.
It is estimated the that change will chop off about a minute of dead time per intentional walk.
Overall, Manfred aims to improve the pace of Major League Baseball games.
The problem with change, as Manfred surely knows, is that baseball is a sport of deep tradition and continuity that, unlike other sports, has been played nearly exactly the same way for more than 100 years. However, we will never see the moments an intentional walk gone wrong provides us again.
Still, it won't affect the outcome of games much, either, as it's rare that pitchers throw wild pitches on intentional walks.
On a different note, Facebook will soon release an app that'll let its users watch Facebook videos on their TVs, including live broadcasts, which could be great timing if the Major League Baseball deal pushes through, assuming such a notion - of people being able to watch games via Facebook on their TV - will be permitted.
"It's just one of those things that happened", Cole said after the game, "first time I've ever done it and hopefully it never happens again".
But congratulations to baseball for cutting one minute one out of every three games, in the middle of a 162-game season. The owners have the power to unilaterally make changes to the game starting next year, according to Manfred.
The flip side of that scenario comes when a pitcher actually gets his lob a little too close to the strike zone and an intrepid batter goes for it. Commissioner Rob Manfred claimed it was a way to speed up games, but I just think he's trying to fix what isn't broken.
