    Now with the challenge review sometime games can go 4 hours. I love the game but it's becoming an investment of time

    no 7th inning stretch....I know the fans are already asleep by the 7th inning but it slows things down.

    Because when if I pay $65 a seat to go to that game, I want it to go as long as possible. Also, they could send a girl down for a hand job.

    Infielders do that to stay loose. But if you're pro injury then so be it.

    They also aren't sitting on the bench. They ar also out there loose by the time a runner is on. Also, that's why they throw around the horn between outs if no one is on.

    Have you seen the DL lately? Tons of injuries going on all over the league. A lot of them are pitchers.
