America's Pastime, Time, and the End Times

The imposition of the clock into our ancient pastoral game spells the end of the sport and country that produced it — Major League Baseball announces new pace of play rules.

Cursed be the comish who promulgated these "new policies aimed at reducing game times by shortening the breaks between innings [and time to take a leak and fill up your beer], the time required for instant replay [itself a travesty not more than a year-old], and the quirk-filled out-of-the-batter’s-box moments between pitches [one of the best parts of the game]."

Let us pray that Minor League Baseball does not follow suit.
