...and I believe that he is correct. My baseball players will be studying this...
Hitters are obsessed with the long ball and at-bats take too long
Players don't have the discipline not to get themselves into the celebrity-obsessed culture
Hitters glare at pitchers if the baseball is "even a baseball card's width inside"
There are few dominating pitchers and pitchers rarely finish what they start (i.e., managers rely too much on the bullpen)
Catchers go out to the mound more than they should
Stepping out of the batter's box frequently also adds to inning length
There are not enough day games so parents can take kids and grandparents can take grandkids
Designated hitter should expand to NL--"It ought to be uniform"
Too much disunity between union and owners
