A day after Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit 91 homers in the Home Run Derby, Rob Manfred is saying Major League Baseball never meant for the ball to change.
"If we were going to do it, we would do it in a way that was transparent to the media and fans before making that change", he said, according to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com.

I think you could debate whether Major League Baseball would want home run rates spiking to quite this extent, but you cannot deny there was a belief that increasing offense could be good for the sport.
In four of Verlander's past five starts, he's allowed multiple home runs, including three longballs July 5 against the Angels and three apiece in starts against the Reds (June 18) and Brewers (June 12). It doesn't need to change very much in order to produce meaningful change in terms of the way the game is played on the field.
"You've got to remember a baseball is not a golf ball", said Manfred.
"I hate the way I feel out there", Verlander said. You have to miss bats. There's been multiple times this year where five years ago I'd probably just throw a fastball away.
Other pitchers around the league, specifically CC Sabathia and Marcus Stroman, have echoed Verlander's sentiment.
"I find it really hard to believe that Major League Baseball owns Rawlings and just coincidentally the balls become juiced", he told Sports Illustrated.
Verlander doesn't believe it's a coincidence. "I think there's something up with the ball". I don't think it's great - that the true outcomes of strikeouts, homers and walks is best for the game. "How you manipulate a human-dominated handmade manufacturing process in any consistent way, it's a smarter human being than I".
