LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Pete Rose sounded bowled over. Charlie Hustle, who famously flattened Ray Fosse to score the winning run in the 1970 All-Star game, couldnt believe Major League Baseball intends to eliminate home-plate collisions by 2015 at the latest. "What are they going to do next, you cant break up a double play?" Rose said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press after MLB announced its plan Wednesday. "Youre not allowed to pitch inside. The hitters wear more armour than the Humvees in Afghanistan. Now youre not allowed to try to be safe at home plate?" Rose said. "Whats the game coming to? Evidently the guys making all these rules never played the game of baseball." New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson, chairman of the rules committee, made the announcement at the winter meetings, saying the change would go into effect for next season if the players association approved. Safety and concern over concussions were major factors -- fans still cringe at the thought of the season-ending hit Buster Posey absorbed in 2011. "Ultimately what we want to do is change the culture of acceptance that these plays are ordinary and routine and an accepted part of the game," Alderson said. "The costs associated in terms of health and injury just no longer warrant the status quo." In a sport long bound by tradition, a ban will be a major step. MLB also is instituting a vast increase in the use of instant replay by umpires next season in an effort to eliminate blown calls. The NFL reached a settlement last summer in a concussion-related lawsuit by former players for $765 million, and a group of hockey players sued the NHL last month over brain trauma. Banned for life in 1989 following a gambling investigation, Rose insists Fosse was blocking the plate without the ball, which is against the rules. Fosse injured a shoulder, and his career went into a downslide. "Since 1869, baseball has been doing pretty well," Rose said. "The only rules they ever changed was the mound (height) and the DH. I thought baseball was doing pretty good. Maybe Im wrong about the attendance figures and the number of people going to ballgames." Alderson said wording of the rules change will be presented to owners for approval at their Jan. 16 meeting in Paradise Valley, Ariz. Details must be sorted out, such as what should happen if a catcher blocks the plate without the ball? "The exact language and how exactly the rule will be enforced is subject to final determination," he said. "Were going to do fairly extensive review of the types of plays that occur at home plate to determine which were going to find acceptable and which are going to be prohibited." Approval of the players union is needed for the rules change to be effective for 2014. "If the players association were to disapprove, then the implementation of the rule would be suspended for one year, but could be implemented unilaterally after that time," Alderson said. The union declined comment, pending a review of the proposed change. Some players spoke up on Twitter. "No more home plate collisions?! What is this? NFL quarterbacks are catchers now?" Oakland outfielder Josh Reddick wrote. "Nothing better than getting run over and showing the umpire the ball. Please dont ban home plate collisions," Pittsburgh rookie catcher Tony Sanchez posted. "Totally disagree," added retired catcher John Flaherty, now an analyst with the Yankees YES Network. Discussion to limit or ban collisions has intensified since May 2011, when Posey was injured as the Marlins Scott Cousins crashed the plate. Posey, San Franciscos All-Star catcher, sustained a broken bone in his lower left leg and three torn ligaments in his ankle, an injury that ended his season. Posey returned to win the NL batting title and MVP award in 2012, when he led the Giants to their second World Series title in three seasons. In Game 5 of this years AL championship series, Detroit catcher Alex Avila was pulled a couple innings after being run over at the plate by Bostons David Ross, a fellow catcher sidelined for much of the season by concussions resulting from foul tips. "This is, I think, in response to a few issues that have arisen," Alderson said. "One is just the general occurrence of injuries from these incidents at home plate that affect players, both runners and catchers. And also kind of the general concern about concussions that exists not only in baseball but throughout professional sports and amateur sports today. Its an emerging issue, and one that we in baseball have to address, as well as other sports." Former catchers Joe Girardi, Bruce Bochy and Mike Matheny -- all now managing in the majors -- attended Wednesdays meeting. "I dont think its completely sparked by anything thats happened in baseball as much as whats happening outside of baseball and how its impacting people and impacting the welfare of each sport," said Matheny, now managing the St. Louis Cardinals. But not everyone is in favour of a change. "I lost time as a catcher being run over a couple different times, but I thought it was part of my job and I enjoyed the contact," said Girardi, the New York Yankees manager. "Now Im not so sure that everyone enjoys contact. But I love football, so I liked it." MLB intends to have varied tiers of punishment. "I think there will be two levels of enforcement," Alderson said. "One will be with respect to whether the runner is declared safe or out based on conduct. So, for example, intentionally running over the catcher might result in an out call. So I think that the enforcement will be on the field as well as subsequent consequences in the form of fines and suspensions and the like." Drafting the rule figures to be complicated. "Does it include at every base or just home plate?" Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. "Whats considered blocking the plate and how do you define all of it?" The NCAA instituted a rule on collisions for the 2011 season, saying "contact above the waist that was initiated by the base runner shall not be judged as an attempt to reach the base or plate." The umpire can call the runner out and also eject the player if contact is determined to be malicious or flagrant. The rule is likely to have an effect on youth leagues, too, where player safety is a primary concern. Little League runners must either slide or try to get around fielders. Plate collisions often are prohibited in high-school ball. "The actual detail, frankly the kinds of plays that were trying to eliminate, we havent finely determined," Alderson said. "I would expect to put together 100 of these plays and identify which ones we want to continue to allow and others that we want to prohibit, and draft a rule accordingly." Adrian Amos Jersey .

Meanwhile, the Jets extended their winning streak to four and remain perfect under Paul Maurice. Its the Jets second four-game winning streak of the season, the other coming in mid-November.Eleven games into the Premier League season it is time for reflection, as a third international window of the club season is upon us. After eleven games, there have been many standout performances. Here is my best XI of the season so far: GK - David De Gea (Manchester United) - It is no coincidence that the standard of goalkeeping in the Premier League has risen at the same time the standard of defending has dropped. Many goalkeepers are having outstanding seasons for their clubs, playing behind some vulnerable back fours, including Joe Hart and Hugo Lloris who have had excellent seasons so far, but no one has been better than De Gea. The Spaniard has made some of the best saves of the season some of which came in the Manchester derby, but no save has been better than the one he made against Bryan Oviedo in injury time against Everton at Old Trafford. RB - Nathaniel Clyne (Southampton) - The 23-year-old Englishman has kicked into another gear this season after progressing nicely last year under Mauricio Pocchetino. Guided by new boss Ronaldo Koeman he is still encouraged to get forward, often positioning himself on the halfway line when his centre-back partners ignite an attack, and his excellent form has seen him rewarded with a call up to the England squad. Clyne is not the best right back in the league, Seamus Coleman and Branislav Ivanovic would have strong arguments for that honour, but on form he has been the standout right back so far this season. The Manchester Evening News recently reported that Manchester United should reunite Luke Shaw with his former full back partner. Clyne has got a long way to go to play for a team like United regularly but at Southampton he is excelling at a steady pace. CB - Gary Cahill (Chelsea) - In a league full of inconsistent performers at the centre-back position, Cahill excels and never has a bad game. Comfortable in possession, quick and strong, the English defender is outstanding in the air and becomes a menace in both penalty areas. Considering the era of average English teams on a national basis it is every credit to Cahill that one of the worlds finest club teams currently has a member of Englands defence at the heart of it and one that no one ever says needs replacing. CB - Winston Reid (West Ham) - No position in the league has seen more money wasted on it in the past couple of years than centre back. No longer can a team part with over 10 million pounds on a defender and call him a sure thing. Just ask Liverpool who has spent 37 million on two centre backs in the last 15 months and neither have convinced yet. Reid, a free agent next summer, however continues to put in consistent performances for a Hammers side that have had a tremendous start to the season and it is little wonder that the Kiwi is stalling on a new contract with many big clubs looking at him next summer as a potential free agent signing. LB - Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea) - Pundit Gary Neville has a very loud voice these days. This is not a bad thing as the former Man Utd defender is outstanding in his role for Sky Sports and is so well respected that when he says something many automatically agree. Neville recently said the Spanish full back was the best defender in the Premier League. Based on his form this season it is hard to disagree as the former Marseille man has continued to impress in a left back slot despite being more familiar at right back. Jose Mourinho made the move to put the 25-year-old at left back, instead of Ashley Cole, at this time last year and it speaks to his development, and, to a degree, the weakness of the position throughout the game, that he can be considered one of the worlds finest left backs at the moment. M - Nemanja Matic (Chelsea) - TThe outstanding midfielder of the Premier League so far.dddddddddddd This time last season Chelsea were playing a similar system to what they play now but with Frank Lampard and Ramires as the two central midfielders. The duo was effective against some teams but they lacked many significant attributes needed in a top midfield. Matic brings tremendous power and strength along with an outstanding footballing IQ. He reads the game brilliantly and without him the rest of the stars who get much more publicity at the club (including his manager) would not be as successful. M - Cesc Fabregas (Chelsea) - The summer signing from Barcelona brings the guile, creativity and finishing ability that the midfield lacked last season. He has formed a phenomenal partnership with Matic that will be sensational for Mourinho for most domestic matches. Occasionally the pair could struggle in tandem against top teams away in the league, and in the Champions League, and may need another, deeper midfielder than the Spaniard in more competitive matches, but, overall, the pair can more than excel against weaker teams domestically. His assist for Andre Schurrles goal against Burnley on the opening weekend remains the best pass of the season and his goal at Crystal Palace showed Chelsea now have a central midfielder on the same creative wavelength as…. M - Eden Hazard (Chelsea) - It was a difficult summer for Hazard at the World Cup for Belgium. The world watched expecting the star to reach the next level and dominate on the games biggest stage but that didnt happen. However, since returning to Chelsea he has continued his development and no longer seems to wait for the game to come to him. Instead he often grabs hold of periods of the game and brings fear into opposing defenders. Hazard is a breathtaking dribbler and now has far better players around him than last season, which will only speed up his inevitable progression into a world-class talent. F - Sergio Aguero (Man City) - No matter what side you support it is great to see Aguero fit and in form again. When he plays consistently at this level it is easy to make a case for him to be the third best player in the game. Aguero scores goals with both feet and his head, inside the box and out, on the break or on instinct. Citys title credentials still remain because of the individual brilliance the Argentine forward brings each week. Having started just 37 games combined the last two Premier League seasons, both he and his team will be hoping he starts over 30 this season. F - Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) - Where would Arsenal be without the Chilean? Citys reliance on Aguero to make them good instead of average has been well documented but Sanchez has made Arsenal average instead of poor. Like Aguero, he scores goals in different ways, pulling off at the back post like he did against Manchester City, scoring one-on-ones, like against Sunderland, and scoring goals with his head or drifting in from the wing, like he did against Burnley. A true, genuine difference maker that Arsenal are lucky to have. F - Diego Costa (Chelsea) - No current player has made it look easier to score goals in this league than the former Atletico Madrid man. Like Aguero and Sanchez he is a genuine world-class star because of his versatility in front of goals. He can be a poacher but he reads plays brilliantly, finding space and anticipating where the ball will be so he can finish in style. Completes the revamp of a much-needed spine through the middle for a much-improved Chelsea team. Subs - Hugo Lloris (Tottenham), John Terry (Chelsea), Leighton Baines (Everton), Morgan Schneiderlin (Southampton), Angel Di Maria (Man Utd), Dusan Tadic, Graziano Pelle (both Southampton).
