MLB gets it wrong — again — with change to intentional walk rule

I’m running out of clouds to yell at (and I’m not that old) when it comes to Major League Baseball. The commissioner and the players association keep changing rules, and the changes aren’t for the better.

Griffin, who turned 27 last month, has played in only 14 games over the past three seasons because of injuries. One of those 14 games was noteworthy last season because it was the Browns’ only victory — 20-17 against the Chargers — in a 1-15 season.

Griffin has never been able to recapture the electrifying style he showed as a rookie with the Redskins in a rookie season in 2012 that ended with an ACL injury in the playoffs.

Bradford wasn’t better in the new system, and Foles was further damaged with no shot to succeed with the Rams’ shaky supporting cast. Kelly piled on the Jackson decision by also not wanting to re-sign Jeremy Maclin in ’15, leaving Philadelphia with one of the league’s worst wideout corps.

Angels outfielder Mike Trout continued to prove why he’s currently the best hitter in baseball in a 6-3 win against the Rangers. Trout went 3 for 4 with two runs scored, a home run, two RBIs and a walk to raise his average to .355 for the season.
