Vote: Top 10 innovations in baseball?

 Dontrelle Willis
Was expansion a good thing?
It doesn't take a historian to note that a lot has changed since Bruce Sutter, who will enter the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown this summer, led the National League with 25 saves in a strike-shortened 1981 season.

Gone are the polyester uniforms and most of the stolen bases, replaced by fashionable new duds and even more fashionable home runs. Starters no longer finish many games, and closer no longer start many eighth innings. The game of baseball itself may be timeless, but its many nuances change with the times.

As fans begin to get ready for the 2006 season, ESPN.com is looking back at the last 25 years in baseball. The experts have come up with a list of the top 25 innovations during that time, but we want SportsNaton's take on the top 10.
