"I want to see Cody Bellinger hit bombs and Jacob deGrom steal souls just like the next guy. I also want to see Javier Baez snap tags, and Yasiel Puig cannon throws, and Byron Buxton on a dead sprint anywhere. It’s not because I was 12 in 1983. It’s because I like a lot of baseball in my baseball game. That’s the entire argument: We want more baseball in the baseball game."
