Commissioner MLB Rob Manfred, apparently, has found another aspect of baseball that needs fixation. According to the report by Tom Verducci the league includes many new subordinate acts that throw out a high-tech token of the theft, like X'stone Astros, which was used during the playoffs last season, thus reversing the practice  It is proposed by the rules according to SI :
In addition to the prohibition of all internal chambers from pole to poles, the rule states that:
- The only direct broadcast broadcast will be the one that is given to the official representative of each team .
- A specially prepared monitor, not a resident alert defender, will be assigned to each designated representative to ensure that the person does not have contact with the staff of the team for signs, personally, by telephone or any other device.
- All other TV monitors will receive game transmissions with an 8-second delay.
- tunnels or auxiliary premises between dugout and club.
- Each club must provide an MLB audit of each internal camera, detailing its purpose, its wiring, and the location where its signal can be viewed
. the change is that he will improve the pace of the game, Manfred's favorite project:
Commissioner Rob Manfred believed that restrictions were necessary, since the theft of high-tech signs became more widespread and slowed down the pace of the game through paranoia. In November last year, general managers thoroughly approved the adoption of such rules, instead of participating in what they saw as an upcoming "high-tech weapon race to deceive," according to one source.
This is a well-grounded explanation. Dragging games because more and more paranoid teams are engaged in cryptological battles is not very interesting. This will probably put an end to further innovations in the development of characters that could at least bring some fun entertainment, if not a lot of fun on the spot.
Speaking of high entertainment, the most fascinating part of the Verducci's report is that managers and GMs will have something from the sign-abduction abstinence promise forced to them by the league:
To make sure the team obeys the rule, the MLB holds the general managers and managers personally responsible for matching. Before and after each season, each GM (or the president of baseball operations) and the manager must sign a document stating that his club complies with the rules against theft and that he did not know "a preconceived plan for the theft of characters,
These new rules seem, that they will stop the Astros-similar scheme again next season, but who will say that teams will not only develop even more advanced forms of chicaners in response? I say: let a theft sign is a post-apocalyptic bay where teams use unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as AIs, to squeeze whatever they were. If there was nothing else, it would have been nice to see Javis Baeza, he noticed the protector of the signs, hitting the baseball on a roar flying over the stadium.
