Do you think baseball has a pacing problem?

Last night’s game between the New York Yankees and the Texas Rangers (won by Texas 10-3) took four hours and five minutes to complete. This is all-too-typical these days of high scoring playoff games with lots of pitching changes.
How long do you think Game 7 of the 1960 World Series (a 10-9 game with plenty of pitching changes) lasted? If you said two hours and thirty-six minutes, you are right.
Heck, it took me longer than that to write about the game.
