Once I get to a real computer you get some rep, sir.
3 whole pitches in 3 freaking minutes. A minute for the catcher to call signals and a batter to "check himself", walk around and do God only knows what after a pitch when he didn't even swing. Rick Reilly wrote a recent article for SI that did a full breakdown of a recent game he watched from start to finish and showed how many pace of play rules are being broken now by pitchers and batters, making games essentially unwatchable. I agreed with every word and I'm a huge fan of the sport. Here's the link:
