Going to keep this short and sweet, having temporarily lost use of my middle finger

Last week, you were challenged to come up with a way to counteract the pitcher favoring qualities of the humidor. The best suggestion, according to you all is...

Make the pool in the field of play

Balls hit into it have to be fished out by the fielders. Runners have to flop like a fish while advancing until the ball’s back on the field.

In second place...

Starting pitchers must:

Spend the day and night before

With the sweaty balls

In third place...

Add an equal number of non-humidified baseballs to those obtained from the humidor,

mix them thoroughly and dispense them to the home plate ump using the plinko machine. No one will know which kind of ball they will be using until it is first pitched (if then.)

How exactly does one measure the humidity of a baseball?

There has been some... discussion about pitcher usage this past week, and their inability to pitch an infinite number of innings. Your mission is to come up with a way Archie Bradley can pitch every game, at least one inning. Go!
