The one “non-call” in the closing minutes of the 2018 NFC Championship game has annoited Rams vs Saints a rivalry. I want to stop here. The one “non-call”? There were more than one so called “non-call.” There were two other “non-calls” that should have gone against the Saints, but unlike Sean “Bounty-Gate’ Payton, Sean McVay did not go crying to the league. He didn’t even go crying to league after the “non-call” on Brandon Cooks that prevented a touchdown pass in the Super Bowl. He just moved on.
“It’ll be a challenge for pitchers to get right-handed and left-handed batters out,” Roberts said of the three-batter rule that figures to impact situational relievers. Whatever the rules, obviously there’s some consensus, so we’ll abide and support. As they evolve, we evolve.”
Dave Roberts gave us his take on the league’s new 3-Batter rule that will take place in 2020.
The league adopted this new rule during their winter meetings. The does not allow the manager change pitchers unless they have faced three batters or the end of the inning.
