Do you believe the MLB should limit the time MLB hitters spend out of the batters box between pitches?

    Loosely not strictly. I think an umpire should have the discretion to both hurry up the pitcher and hitter by giving some warning before calling a delay of game with some penalty. I don't like the idea of saying, alright youve got 10 second and i've got a timer lets go.

    There are plenty of other ways to speed up the game than that.

    I think they should work to speed up the game.

    When I was a kid, games generally took about 2 hrs. Today they usually go 3. And, if it's Yankees vs Red Sox, 4 hrs isn't out of the question. That's too long.

    I think the whole fixing your gloves, tapping your cleats, 3-4 practice swings between pitches is too much.

    I think in the long run thats not too big a deal. Let players have their quirks.

    Yeah, they've got to find a way to shorten the game without instituting something similar to basketball's shot clock.

    Its simple, instant replay and shortening commercial breaks.

    I don't see them shortening commercial breaks. That's where they make their money.
