It’s Time to Discuss the Mercy Rule

  • September 6, 2022

This week, we travel back to May 17, 2021, the day Yermin Mercedes swung on a 3-0 pitch from position player Willians Astudillo with his team up 15-4. Since then, we’ve seen many examples of hitters “running up the score”. Sometimes even against position players. The solution to this problem is obvious. Major League Baseball needs to implement the Mercy Rule… with a twist.
