An interesting idea to speed up the game from Yankees manager Joe Girardi. Borrowing from the NFL, Girardi said he would have small listening devices for batters to receive signs. For pitchers and catchers, they could use them to change signals.

Interesting perspective from Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka on implementing a dugout signal for intentional walks: "Perhaps it will take away some of the drama out of baseball. But, if you are just talking from the standpoint of a pitcher, it's an advantage because there is no chance of the ball being overthrown over the catcher's head or anything like that. Also, last year, Gary Sánchez almost hit a home run off an intentional walk, so it avoids that situation too. But also, intentional walks are something that can throw a pitcher off rhythm a little bit. When you are pitching out, the balls that you are throwing are light tosses. And then all of a sudden you have to go back into the game and throw 100 percent to the next batter. So perhaps not having to do that will keep you in rhythm."
