13 Hall of Famers who might not bat with my rules.

Only the six batter rule would completely eliminate the players listed below but consider how much you really wanted to watch any of them bat. They are mostly middle infielders and catchers. And how much more you'd rather have many more times at bat for their much better hitting teammates.

Nobody cares about the bottom of the order. Nobody. NOBODY. It's where the nobodies bat. Tuesday, June 14, 2016

There are few number six batters who are good and/or interesting. Below six it's just filler until the game resumes. So implement one or both of these two great ideas I've promoted for years.

Six batters.

Start each inning with the top of the order.
