The Players React

By now you've heard that MLB is considering outlawing the fake-to-third, throw-to-first maneuver, and perhaps you've registered your opinion in the accompanying poll. But what do the players think about the proposed rule change?

"That’s fine by me, just so long as they never do anything about that play where the base runner hurls his body at full speed into the catcher." - Buster Posey

"A lot of people say MLB is too slow to get things done, but when it comes to the important stuff, like making that fake-to-third thing a balk or leaking the results of confidential drug tests, they're Johnny-on-the-spot." - Ryan Braun

"I like this because it's fan friendly. And before I was a baseball player, I was a baseball fan. And like any fan, I love it when I can't see my favorite team play because of vitally important blackout restrictions." - Joey Votto

"I still get to be several feet from first base while recording an out, right? Okay, cool." - Todd Helton

"I'm for anything that keeps the game moving. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got to adjust these batting gloves for the thousandth time this at-bat." - Nomar Garciaparra
