You know how Boston Red Sox/Yankees matchups tend to be long? And how it's usually chalked up to the players on both teams being very patient and taking a lot of pitches? I say BULLSHIT!
The truth is that they prolong the breaks between innings because they know how profitable the advertising time is when these teams play against each other. Go get yourself a stopwatch and compare/contrast.
In other news, I was selected in the Rhode Island Day lottery for the Red Sox and now I have an opportunity to buy tix tomorrow. I want to sit in the bleachers, preferable above the pen. I think that would be lovely.
I'm playing ball tonight and I can't wait.
