IDEA FOR THE NEW COMMISH: In N.Y., Joel Sherman writes under the header, "How To Make Watching Baseball Fun Again." Sherman: "What is needed -- among other things -- is a better way to captivate fans between pitches. I offer something I hope marries a traditional element of the sport with the modern." Each team should hire "someone who really understands game strategy," then have that person "quickly put up questions on the board and bottom of the TV screen." The telecasts should then "have the poll results instantly update on the board -- and also on the TV scroll, because the questions also go out to viewers." Sherman: "Think of it as a real-time tutorial as you get armed with information that now gets fed to managers to actually make these decisions" (N.Y. POST, 8/19).
