Nationals Infielder Anthony Rendon Labels Baseball ‘Too Long And Boring’

“I don’t watch baseball—it’s too long and boring,” he told the Washington Post.

The Nationals are in the middle of a pennant race and their best hitter does not like watching baseball. Is that a problem? His success thus far in 2014 suggests otherwise.

<\blockquote>

Yeah, and I don’t really watch tapes of technical reviews and staff meetings when I come home.  They too, are too long and boring.  Although, strictly speaking, they are not billed as entertainment.

The comparison to soccer in TFA is interesting.  The beautiful game can be painfully slow but at least that clock keeps moving and you have some idea when it will end.  This tied Angels-Mariners game I’m watching is moving at a pace that suggests it may never end.  They should just go to penalty kicks and be done with it.

Now THERE is an idea: after a certain point in a tie game just hold a mini-home run derby. Each team gets to send up a fixed number of "sluggers" for a fixed number of pitches. Whoever hits out more balls wins! Whaddayathink???

Of course most people's jobs aren't spectator sports :)

It's akin to writers not liking to read - you occasionally meet one who will admit it. I know literature professors who don't really like to read or write; it's a "job" to them.

I'm surprised at how many actors don't like to see the movies or shows in which they have performed. Maybe that's just insecurity talking, but you figure they'd like to find ways to improve their game? Or maybe not?

I'm pleased as punch over the pleasant surprise that has been Anthony Rendon, but there's something about him that I just can't put my finger on that bugs me. Like one day I'll look here and find some scandalous article about him or something. Until then, it's all good.

As a sometimes semi-professional trumpet player, I don't like to listen to studio recordings of stuff I've played on so I can relate to that.

Dear baseball,

Your game is too long and boring. Please eliminate three innings.

P.S.: I am not a crackpot.
   10. Robert in Manhattan Beach Posted: July 19, 2014 at 12:08 PM (#4754284)
UPDATE: The Angels-Mariners did eventually end when some guy I've never heard of got a hit off some other guy I've never heard of and one of the teams scored a run. At least that's the word I'm hearing. It ended long after I'd lost interest and any sensible fan had gone home, so we'll have to take MLB's word. Time of game: five hours, fourteen minutes. Yay baseball!

It's not surprising that a baseball player, whom we can assume rarely watches games he's not actively playing in, and who rarely sits on the bench during the games he plays in, thinks games are too long and boring when he's not playing. Rendon is not the first player to make this statement, nor will he be the last.

It's pretty clear that the modern game drags, especially games in the AL, and super-duper especially games in the AL East. There's no reason for baseball fans to pretend this isn't the case. A game should be between 2 and 3 hours long, not between 3 and 4 hours long. If baseball can tweak the edges to move the pace back to the 2-3 hour bracket without impacting the game outside of the margins, that would be good. (The majority of delays in televised baseball are due to longer and longer TV/commercial breaks, especially during the playoffs. MLB is incented directly to NOT solve that problem correctly.)

Retraining hitters to step into the box and play with the same pace as players from the 70's (go back and watch those at bats and compare them to today's at bats) wouldn't harm the game and would speed up the "clock."
   13. Daniel in Toronto Posted: July 19, 2014 at 12:29 PM (#4754294)
To speed up games (a little), I'd like to see a rule that a relief pitcher has to face a minimum of two batters.

Shorten time between innings by 30 seconds and charge more for commercials. Thats 9 minutes right there.

I like the 2 batter minimum for relievers. Would make for some interesting strategy. I'd rather see the league lose a few Loogy's then a few DH's. But the vast majority of reliever appearances are for more than one batter. This would not move the needle very much.

Only allow a batter to step out of the box after a foul ball or a "dusting".

Enforce the rules on time to deliver the next pitch.

Just those relatively painless things shaves 20-25 minutes off the game time.

Done.

   16. Rickey! trades in sheep and threats Posted: July 19, 2014 at 01:01 PM (#4754310)
In addition to the items @15, moving back to a "put the ball in play" sort of game would probably shorten the games as well. Strikeouts, in addition to being fascist, take time. As do walks.

Make it 4, and you've got something.

Yes.

Yes, and cut it from 15 sec. to 10 sec.

Also, eliminate all visits to the mound except to remove a pitcher.

In Japan, they play extra innings if needed, but if the game is still tied after 12 innings, it ends, and goes into the books as a tie.

This isn't a bad method for in-season games at all. You already record half-games back/up in the standings.

That wouldn't make a noticeable difference. Enforcing written rules and keeping batters in the box is going to make a much bigger difference than worrying about the extra 3 minutes that results from two mid inning pitcher changes.

I do not, for the life of me, get why this is the rule people want to focus on, it doesn't make a big difference, or even a difference at all. NBA,NFL etc... takes 10-20 minutes to play the last 3 minutes of a game, but adding an extra 90 seconds is what is killing MLB's pacing?
   23. cardsfanboy Posted: July 19, 2014 at 02:54 PM (#4754368)

That is the only thing proposed on this thread that 1. would make a difference 2. might possibly happen 3. doesn't screw with the game.

There are 300 pitches(roughly) in a game, reducing the time between pitches by even 3 seconds means a savings of 900 seconds or 15 minutes.

Or just book a tie after nine innings. Or play one additional inning where each team gets six outs. Or roll the tie over like a tie in a skins game and make the next game worth two. Something. Spending over five hours to decide the outcome of one regular season game is insane.

Sometimes I have to wonder if people on here are actual baseball fans...

I mean lesser sports, like soccer have ties, but the best sport in the world should never do something as utterly ridiculous as that or even worse... a homerun derby(ala NHL) to determine a winner.

You make two huge assumptions. First, you assume the pacing of the end of NBA games is optimal, or even good.

Second, you assume it's only 90 seconds to bring in a relief pitcher. I've never timed it, but from experience I"m pretty sure it takes a half hour to switch out a reliever

I have timed it, and it takes 90 seconds.

No, I'm not a particularly big fan of today's brand of baseball. 90% of that is pacing. It's similar to how I (and everyone else) soured on the NHL during the neutral zone trap era. The NHL actually heard fans say 'This sucks' and addressed the issues. Now, the NHL has never been more faced paced and exciting. I want the same for my formerly beloved baseball. There is no reason - when there is such a chorus of voices out there saying 'This sucks' - that something shouldn't be done.

First, you assume the pacing of the end of NBA games is optimal, or even good.

Yeah, this is always the center of cfb's argument. That somehow NBA and NFL are the gold standard. The ending of NBA games suck, that's not a high bar. All the stoppages in the NFL suck, that's not a high bar. Baseball could do better if anyone in charge gave a ####.

Not really, but often times this argument is coincided with TV ratings talk and how the NBA and NFL are beating the snot out of baseball in some meaningless ratings numbers, which proves that those sports are more popular or some other idiotic garbage like that.

The point is that MLB's pacing issues have nothing to do with what is going on in the game, and there aren't noticeably more mid inning pitching changes nowadays than in the past (Generally speaking prior to the 70's, almost All pitching changes were mid inning) It's all about broadcasting and human rain delays.

   32. dejarouehg Posted: July 19, 2014 at 04:34 PM (#4754416)
I thoroughly enjoy extra-inning games and don't believe their frequency or lack thereof is a significant factor. (When I used to go to games I rooted for extra-innings - more is better!!)

Eventually, someone will wake up and force pitchers to conform to the 12 second time limit and batters will have to stay in the box or risk the pitcher throwing. (I think we will have crossed the Rubicon if there is ever a time clock.)

What can not be legislated out is players taking more pitches to wear down the starters.

I thought it would be interesting if fans started counting when Josh Beckett gets a ball back from the catcher. Maybe when they reach 20, the umpire will react.

Another possibility is to limit the number of pick-off attempts per baserunner so that after x attempts, you could institute the 12 second clock again.

I completely disagree. Three strikes takes less time than 4 balls.

At every level of baseball, batters should be encouraged to swing the bat.

Start the games at 5 pm, start TV coverage at 7 pm. Then nobody but the suckers at the actual game will have to sit there for 4 hours and even they will learn not to roll up early. When you flick on the TV and find it's already 8-0 that will be awesome cuz you can switch over to Hogan's Heroes re-runs (that Schultz is hilarious!) and other TV programming that is not long and boring at all.

Or, y'know, read a book ... Ha! almost got through that with a straight face.

Man up you winps! Baseball needs your eyeballs for 3.5-4 hours per day to get through this rough patch of Francoeurian horror. After all baseball has done for you, it's the least you can do.

if you repeat something often enuf, people start to believe it.

E.g. a liberal society is responsible for increase in crime rate. Or personal injury lawsuits is why medical bills are so high.

As you pointed out w/ respect to popularity/time of game; people often juxtapose several issues into the same conversation if it has to do with: a) something they follow, and b) something they are upset about.

Like we have that conversation about drop off in offense, and people are complaing: a) too many strike outs, b) not enuf balls in play; c) hacking at the plate is aesthetically displeasing; d) games take too long; e) just allow one throw to first; f) move fences out, g) make the reliever face 4 batters h) don't allow them to shift i) dont allow them to carry 12 pitchers j) allow steroids k) dont manicure the infield...

Dont ever change Primates.

Yes, and that run was also scored by a pretty obscure player. I pity the fans who had to watch him for 16 innings, and that's not even mentioning the fact that this nobody had four hits and a walk in the game.
   41. BDC Posted: July 19, 2014 at 06:37 PM (#4754485)
I like the ballpark and usually go early (it's quieter :) Sheer time there is not a deterrent. Having a reliever take 45 seconds meditating what to throw somebody in the 7th inning of a 8-1 game, as if he had more than one pitch to begin with, is like watching videos of paint drying.

And I think everyone here agrees - other fixes have less consensus, but "play ball" is universal.

Nah, follow hockey's other example. The 10th is played with just 8 fielders, the 11th with just 7, etc.

And the super-fair Golden Run! Flip a coin to see who bats first in extra innings, first run wins. Alternate if you want.

Also no breaking balls after the 8th inning, no changeups after the 9th, aluminum bats after the 10th, runner on 2nd to start the inning after the 11th, no OF allowed after the 12th, the unwritten rules no longer apply after the 13th, managers put to death if the game is still tied at the end of 14.

I didn't follow, what exactly happened? (I'm an American, once USA was out, I was done)

Netherlands -- Argentina, in one of the most boring displays of soccer in FIFA history,** were 0-0 at the end of 90 minutes, played the 30 minutes of extra time as if playing the ball into the other team's box was strictly forbidden and went to PKs.

** Kinda figuring that would happen, I slept in and didn't get out of bed until extra time was scheduled to start, so I make that conclusion based on friends' opinions.

What's amazing is that there's not a single Yankee position player who was in the starting lineup less than ten months ago who's even on the bench for today's game. There are two (Murphy and Almonte) on the 40 man roster, but that's it. Is this the Yankees or the Houston Astros?

It's pretty clear that the modern game drags, especially games in the AL, and super-duper especially games in the AL East.


Let's not blame the whole division for the sins of two teams.

The Os and Jays are consistently faster than average, despite playing nearly a quarter of their games against the New York/Boston Yankees.
