4.5 hours. 1:06 for one inning. Yuck.

Dodgers took FOUR hours, 32 minutes to beat the Nationals 4-3 in Washington. Inning 7 took one hour, 6 minutes.

Who finds that entertaining? It was the fifth and deciding game of the quarter final series. Now the Dodgers need to win two best of seven series.

The current conventional wisdom is to burn out your entire roster as if extra innings are impossible. This results in Clayton Kershaw getting the final out against a guy I never heard of.

Games are too long with too little action and too much dead time between pitches. Baseball like this is unwatchable, unless you record and fast forward between each pitch.
