Dodgers, Phillies play until after midnight on a school night
Elapsed time for Game 1 of the NLCS: 4:02.
If we can't rely on the National League games to come in under four hours, I shudder to think what the Yankees might have in store for us.
At least they're not playing the Red Sox. That should help.
I've said it before, I'll say it again:
Step One in solving this crisis is to set up an electronic fence around the perimeter of the box that jolts the batter every time he tries to step out between pitches.
It's a start.
