The three batter minimum will be absolute torture when someone goes out there and just doesn't have it, like someone with a name that rhymes with Becil. But, from the hitting team's perspective, I guess it'll be exciting.

Gonna be a lot of pitchers faking injuries to get out of that. Actually, pitchers might legitimately get hurt if they have to throw 40 pitches to get through 3 batters.

Maybe pitchers will have to relearn how to pitch rather than just rear back and throw.

Yes, Major League pitchers don't know how to "pitch."

That's a lot of foul balls.

Yeah, true. I was thinking 3 outs. Still, if they don't have it and have to face 3 batters, they're liable to take a liner off the head.
