Baseball commish Rob Manfred announced this week that MLB's dropping the 4-pitch intentional walk from the game, opting instead to have managers signal the ump with four fingers, which is probably three more than they'd prefer.

This is supposed to help shorten the game. Right.

The wave-a-dude has been a rule in softball for quite some time, presumably because no one wants to see even 30 seconds cut from their post-game drinking time.

But this is The Show. Who complains about something that might happen once a week per team?

We know this, because we listen to our customers. No one complains about an extra half-minute skipping through what Fanorama has to offer, like these handy dandy dual-purpose snowboard and motorcycle goggles for only $16.29:

Trust us. You may need more than four fingers to put them on, but no one's complaining about a year-round, multi-purpose accessory!
