Sad about baseball this year.

Also would mean no commercials which would speed games up.

Hand-cranked 8mm film.  You'd just have to have a short delay with runners taking the film canisters off site, develop them, digitize them, and sending the resulting Zapruder film version of the game out to the world.  There could be commercials, just inserted later, so the game really would/could go faster.

Just thought of this... you'd have to put a big Faraday cage around the whole stadium to keep ne'er do wells and their cell phones from violating the ban without resorting to pat-downs of everyone coming in the gate.

If Greg Maddux can throw a complete game in 1 hour and 46 minutes, that would mean that after a pitch, he didn't wait around for the oppo to even have a chance to steal pitches.  So what is the problem today?  I'll bet credits to navy beans, it has to do with sponsors and their dollars.  The longer the game, the more their money is put to good use.  More time for commercials.  It always comes down to money.

If Jesse Barnes can throw a complete game in 51 minutes...

I want the answer to this question:

“How many times did the trashcan bang while you were at bat?”

You are expecting them to have counted?  Oh wait you just want them to embarrass themselves so you feel better.

Why is it when I read that question, all I can think of is "how much wood can a woodchuck chuck"?

That’s also a Geico commercial, I think.

Somewhere there is an adult website devoted to banging trash cans.

Have to catch the other can first before the 'act'.

I don’t know how you find time during your busy day to come up with all this stuff. Did you actually do a Google search for, “two trash cans chasing each other down the street”?

Actually, "Methodology of Trashcan Procreation".
