Coffee breaks, Water Coolers, Cubicles, ... you know, like an office.

Next time you see a foul ball, see if it doesn't remind you of a coffee break in an office: a lot of people at work, not working.

Water cooler talk: why not just put a water cooler on the mound, the place of endless mindless meetings?

Most of the players on the field are not invited to the mound meetings. So, provide them with cubicles at their defensive positions so that they can use that idle time productively: make phone calls, e-mail, tweet, ...

All that empty time sucking the life out of a MLB game reminds me of a typical office, wasting the resources of the people employed there. Both are boring.
