    You better believe the advertisers loved every minute of those 4 hours. This is why I don't watch baseball anymore, it has slowed an already slow game to unbearable lengths.

    The umps should use a stopwatch to time pitchers and batters....if a guy spends more then twenty seconds at the plate adjusting his gloves, grabbing his crotch, etc., he gets hit with a strike for delay of game....if a pitcher does likewise on the mound, call it a ball. They already call arbitrary stuff like balks so why not penalize them for slow play? A nine inning game should not last more then three hours, tops.
