Default Re: The 2010 NY baseball thread

I was watching the YES network this evening, and since it's an off day for the Yankees, YES was playing a "classic", one of the dodger-yankees world series games.

One glaring difference in the game then, and now, is the pace of the game!

Geesh, if I didn't hear the announcers and realize this was "real time" I would have sworn they had the playback set in Fastforward.

The difference between those games and the stupid, long, games of today is striking.

Where on almost every pitch, a batter is stepping out, a pitcher is walking off the mound, or a catcher is running out to "confer" on signs.

Just play the game, dabnabit!
