Commissioner Rob Manfred says Major League Baseball is trying to remove from the internet the leaked video of former Mets manager Terry Collins ranting at umpires.

The profanity-laced video surfaced this week from a Dodgers-Mets game in May 2016 that Fox televised. Collins fumes after ace Noah Syndergaard is ejected in the third inning for throwing a fastball behind Chase Utley. In the 2015 playoffs Justin Layne Jersey , Utley broke the leg of Mets infielder Ruben Tejada with a late, hard slide.

Umpire crew chief Tom Hallion is heard explaining the ejection to Syndergaard, Neil Walker and other Mets, then he breaks away to head off Collins. For many fans, the loud exchange between Collins and Hallion illuminated what actually gets said during heated disputes.

”We made a commitment to the umpires that if they would wear microphones, certain types of interactions that we all know go on the field would not be aired publicly,” Manfred said Thursday after the owners meetings ended.

”We promised them that. It’s in the collective bargaining agreement. We had no choice in a situation like that then to do everything possible to live up to our agreement. It is Labor Relations 101. To not do that is the kind of breach of trust that puts you in a bad spot over the long haul,” he said.

Manfred said there was conversation this week about how defensive shifts have affected the game. Batting averages are dropping, among other developments, and Manfred said MLB’s Competition Committee wanted to see ”whether it’s time for us to manage these trends a little more aggressively.”

A change that could occur as soon as next season: teams playing a two-game series on the weekend.

Normally http://www.steelersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-benny-snell-jr.-jersey , clubs meet for three games over the weekend. But in the case where marquee teams play just twice – say, Nationals-Yankees – those might be held on Saturday and Sunday.

Manfred said baseball was pleased with the pace of play. Games this year were averaging 2 hours, 59 minutes, 49 seconds through Wednesday; last year, they averaged 3:05:11.

Mound visits by catchers, coaches, managers and other teammates for nonpitching changes are down, too, from 7.41 last year to an average of 3.92 this season.

Manfred said the owners had a long discussion about the ”sports betting landscape” after Delaware and New Jersey began legal betting on games.

As for the never-ending debate on the designated hitter and whether the National League would ever switch to the DH, Manfred said: ”I think that is a continuing source of conversation among the ownership group and I think that the dialogue actually probably moved a little bit.”

Last week: 5-8-1Weeks 1 through 6: 42-44-4Last week wasn’t the best of weeks. Time to get back over the .500 mark…Los Angeles Chargers (-6.5) vs. Tennessee (London)The Chargers were quite impressive last week in Cleveland and seem to be hitting their stride. The Titans Zach Gentry Jersey , well, they must protect Marcus Mariota a little better if they want to hang in this one.Regardless, hopefully this game will be a better showing for the London fans than Seahawks-Raiders was last week.<em>Pick: Los Angeles Chargers (-6.5)</em>Indianapolis (-7.5) vs. BuffaloThis game feels like it will be a struggle for both sides. For the Bills, Derek Anderson is an upgrade over Nathan Peterman, but that’s not exactly a compliment. Running backs do flourish in the passing game against the Colts defense, so keep an eye on LeSean McCoy.<em>Pick: Buffalo (+7.5)</em>Philadelphia (-5) vs. CarolinaEagles are 13-2 in their last 15 home games and are coming off of a thrashing of the Giants last Thursday night. They should come out fresh and ready to go.<em>Pick: Philadelphia (-5)</em>Tampa Bay (-3.5) vs. ClevelandIf you take away last week’s blowout loss, the Browns have been in every single game they’ve played in this season. I’d expect this one to be no different. Both Baker & Jameis have big days.<em>Pick: Cleveland (+3.5)</em>Detroit (-3) vs. MiamiIt is slated to be 88 degrees with 69% humidity on Sunday in Miami, and the Dolphins are 3-0 at home so far this season. They also have Kenyan Drake & the ageless Frank Gore to wear down a poor Lions run D.<em>Pick: Miami (+3)</em>Jacksonville (-4) vs. HoustonI honestly am not sure what to think of Jacksonville right now. I’ll take them here, though, as they’ll come out with an edge after being humiliated in Dallas last Sunday.<em>Pick: Jacksonville (-4)</em>Minnesota (-3.5) vs. New York JetsHow good is Adam Thielen?? With another 100 yards receiving this week Joey Bosa Jersey , he would tie the NFL record with seven consecutive 100-yard games to begin a season. He is also on pace to break the single-season NFL record for catches. Not bad for a UDFA.<em>Pick: Minnesota (-3.5)</em>New England (-2.5) vs. ChicagoMitch Trubisky is a different QB at home (in a good way), but the Patriots offense is rolling right now.<em>Pick: New England (-2.5)</em>Baltimore (-2.5) vs. New OrleansDrew Brees has beaten every single NFL team in his career….. except the Ravens. Coming off a bye, he gets that W here.<em>Pick: New Orleans (+2.5)</em>Washington (-1) vs. DallasDallas is 0-3 on the road. Washington has beat some good teams at home. I’ll take Washington.<em>Pick: Washington (-1)</em>Los Angeles Rams (-9.5) vs. San Francisco9.5 points is a lot for a division game on the road. The Rams stay unbeaten, but it will be closer than some think.<em>Pick: San Francisco (+9.5)</em>Kansas City (-6) vs. CincinnatiThe Chiefs may have lost against the Patriots, but I’m sold on Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs offense. They will score in bunches on Sunday Night & the Bengals won’t be able to keep up.<em>Pick: Kansas City (-6)</em>Atlanta (-4) vs. New York GiantsI mean, we’ve seen better Monday Night matchups.<em>Pick: Atlanta (-4)</em>
