No more pitching on intentional walks.

Raising the bottom of the strike zone.

I would like to see a 30 second timer for the pitcher to actually throw the pitch (resets of the batter steps off). If you the timer runs out, automatic ball. The games are so tedious to watch nowadays purely because the game doesn't move along.

Limit the catchers visits to the mound is all I'd do.  If you can't get the signs right, practice more.  Otherwise I'd agree with JR

How bout going down to 3-3 count. 3 balls is a walk. Force the pitcher to throw over the plate.

Why not. 

it destroys the natural balance of the game. the 3-2 count is elegant suspense.  Don't f with it.

And so will a 2-2. Makes no sense to get 4 balls but only 3 strikes

2-2 won't because it will never happen. It's not math, it's baseball

I have along with many others. Hence why they are looking to change the rules

They tweak the rules, just like football. Both sports are healthy. What you are suggesting throws away the record book.

Yea ? Guesse we shouldn't have the forward pass. Baseball is healthy ? That's a hot take!!
