As the World Series ends, let's consider shortening games

(Continued)

Baseball’s brass know they have a problem, but so far they’ve been unable to speed up the game. For instance, baseball initiated a 12-second pitch clock, but it hasn’t been enforced.  What did they expect?

Other unnecessary delays have been discussed and debated for years. Again, no action.

Baseball fans like to sing Take Me Out to the Ballgame and even proclaim "I don’t care if I never get back."

Well, the truth is that they do. It’s time someone took action.
