You, on the other hand, have not watched the game in 5 years, lost a bet, and you're now crying "rigged". The volume of action on any given baseball game doesn't even justify rigging. In other words you have no discernment skills. The pitchers are complaining about the fact the league has two different balls,, ones heavier than the other. Convenience for causing certain situations to happen. Are you too dense to realize that even playing with two balls of varying weight, far too much is still left up to chance to rig a game. The league has manipulated things in order to increase run output but that doesn't equate to rigging. The ball is still the ball. There are no magnets in them. Lololololol manipulated run output is in fact rigging. Weighted balls does in fact change the game. Magnets? You're making a pointless remark to deflect. That's in footballs. And yes that's been proven by the fact they put trackers in footballs. Those are magnetic.
God, you're an idiot. Changing the weight and composition of a baseball is not rigging. Sporting equipment changes over time, num nuts. Look at a baseball, a hockey puck, a hockey stick, anything from 20, 50, 100 years ago, they'll all be different. Rigging would be using different balls for different teams, different situations, etc. And this just does not happen. It would be easily proven if it was.
