Yeah that’s where I disagree. I lean towards being a purist. The game takes as long as it should take, I don’t necessarily buy into fitting it into everyone’s schedule. I get why though, it’s about viewership and ratings.I like watching sports but it can be very time consuming. When a game goes to overtime or extra innings it starts to really take a toll, maybe interfering with other things that needs to be done. I'm all for speeding up the game, especially baseball since it's not as fast paced as most other sports. Things like a timer between pitches, or reducing the time when changing pitchers or speeding up extra innings are great IMO. Baseball has historically very resistant to change which I think has always been a big negative so I love the fact that they're finally doing some bold things.
