Mattingly: Reversing the tolerance for Ks would speed play

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly thinks reversing the tolerance for strikeouts would speed the pace of play.

"Analytically, a few years back nobody cared about the strikeout, so it's OK to strike out 150, 160, 170 times, and that guy's still valued in a big way," Mattingly said. "Well, as soon as we start causing that to be a bad value - the strikeouts - guys will put the ball in play more. So once we say strikeouts are bad and it's going to cost you money the more you strike out, then the strikeouts will go away. Guys will start making adjustments and putting the ball in play more."

Strikeouts have set records in recent seasons, with teams averaging 8.03 per game last year. A career .307 hitter with 222 homers over 14 seasons, Mattingly never struck out more than 43 times in a single year.
