5 bold predictions for the rest of the MLB offseason. | SportsonEarth.com : Anthony Castrovince Article

Alas, nobody’s seriously expecting the 20-second pitch clock—the best of the pace-of-play procedures tested in the Arizona Fall League—to be instituted anytime soon, but one league source said the “one foot in the batter’s box” rule that was also tested does have some legs (pun intended).

10 problems with Jose Canseco’s predictions for 2015

Problem: The rights to Family Matters were originally owned by ABC, then CBS bought them. No way is that valuable series being sold to NBC. Sorry, not happening.

Problem: Peace in the Middle East would be amazing, make it so Cansecodamus—but where is this ocean located? Israel isn’t on an ocean, it’s on the
Mediterranean Sea. Moreover, who’s trading a part of the Mediterranean Sea? 200 miles in any direction hits Egypt, Lebanon, Cyprus or Syria.
