That's a load of horsehockey.


Two things would speed up the game enormously...1, no between innings tv/radio commercials over 1 minute, and 2, only 1 adjustment of batting gloves for every 4 pitches....no exceptions.

Why they ever started allowing batters to step out after every pitch, to go through the Nomar Garciaparro full uniform adjustment, is way beyond me. It is the single biggest time segment that is completely and utterly WASTE. The only reason batters do it is that they got used to doing it, and now it's such a habit they would have trouble stopping it.
