I just want to go to sheep and Chapman can’t finish it. 4+ hour postseason games that start at 8:30. WTF!  Do they want anyone to watch. 

I love this first round on days when there are four games (like Friday and Monday).  It has an NCAA March Madness feel the way the games are staggered and they have pre and post shows on TBS and FS1.  Basically had the tv on baseball from the moment I got home.  Still, I had to call it in the 9th last night and checked the score on my phone before bed.

I agree, if the games were 2 1/2 hours.  I probably love baseball more than 95% of Americans, and more than 99.99999% of Americans under 40, and I have trouble staying interested in 4 1/2 hour slow-paced games where my team is winning.  I don't know how that bodes well for MLB's long-term future.  You can't have a 5-1 game last more than 4 hours, especially if you start it at 8:40 PM on a Monday night.  To tack on an extra hour to already lengthy games come postseason time is a real momentum killer.  The Yankees used 6 pitchers and the Twins 4, and no one scored that many runs!  I guarantee there's going to be at least one Yankees-Astros game that goes 5 hours, and it won't be extra innings.
