Rob Manfred doesn't think baseball "needs to be fixed," but has defended a series of pace-of-game proposals.

Manfred says the game does need to change "so that baseball means as much to the next generation as it does to our generation."

Major League Baseball is currently negotiating with the players' association over which, if any, of the proposals will go into effect for this season.

Manfred has endorsed raising the strike zone, eliminating the intentional walk and finding ways to streamline instant replay.
