(WILX) -- New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone is suggesting major league baseball needs a mercy rule. I'm not sure he's not on to something.
They have it in the high schools and in college softball.
Meaningless run away games don't need to play out, I can see solid reasons for that.
Like play seven innings and if it's a ten run game, then it ends.
The games are long enough as it is.
I don't know if it will ever happen at the major league level but it would sure save at least some wear and tear on players.
