Ken Griffey, Jr. sleeping in the clubhouse. Carlos Lee getting yelled at by Chris Carpenter. Alex Rodriguez crossing into Bradenia. Seems like all these incidents have brought these 'unwritten rules' of baseball into focus.

Combine those with Morgan Ensberg's excellent posts about these same rules and a new book being published on the subject and this season has been all about baseball etiquette.

My question is this: which of these rules do you think are the most important? The silliest? More because of common courtesy? Do you think there should be any rules added? Taken away?

Basically, act like we're setting up a Kangaroo Court. Let's set the ground rules we think are important and run with it.
