Turning Back the Clock – The Hardball Times

Game length is a problem. I work. Staying up late to watch a game is something I just can’t do on a regular basis. It’s even worse going to the ballpark. When the game gets done around 10 PM, I’m home from Fenway about 11:00-11:30 PM. Add in an extra hour, though, and I’m struggling to get up in the morning.

There is one matter, though, that was a problem when Selig became acting commissioner, and has grown unchecked into something approaching a crisis. The game on the field is taking too long, longer than it needs to, and much longer than it used to.

I admit I’ve been a pest about this matter before, complaining about it when doing recaps of postseason games that kept me up way past my bedtime. I felt a touch guilty, and tried to restrain myself from going into full-fledged rants. No longer. It’s time to commit to being a pest, for the good of the game.
