>Let's Blame Willie For Long Games Too!


Quiet day. In Newsday today…
And if it feels like the Yankees, Red Sox and Mets play the longest games of all … you’re not imagining things. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Red Sox are the biggest offenders, at 3:08. Then come the Yankees, at 3:06. And the Mets top the National League at 3:01.

The Red Sox and Yankees both field lineups that emphasize selectivity at the plate. The Mets? I guess the lack of long outings by the starting pitcher leads to multiple pitching changes by Willie Randolph.
