Baseball games still take too long. Blame the Red Sox.

With beer going for $9.00 a pop, every extra minute increases concession sales. But more money can’t be the cause. Right?

   1. Jose Is The Most Absurd Thing on the Site Posted: April 22, 2014 at 03:36 PM (#4691353)
Does any sport other than baseball routinely track how long it takes to play a game? It doesn't seem like football takes any less time than baseball and even hockey takes about 2:30-2:40 which is not outrageously less than a 3:00 baseball game.
