    Umpire Joe West calls the Red Sox and Yankees "pathetic" and "embarrassing"

    "They're the two clubs that don't try to pick up the pace. They're two of the best teams in baseball. Why are they playing the slowest? It's pathetic and embarrassing. They take too long to play. The commissioner of baseball says he wants the pace picked up. We try. And [Tuesday night's game] still almost went four hours . . . This is embarrassing, a disgrace to baseball."

    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.
