I still think, as I said earlier, that expanding, or at least calling the strike zone as it was originally intended, can possibly help shorten the games. It does this by the pitchers throwing more strikes (and fewer balls), thus more strike outs, fewer walks. The pitcher doesn't have to groove the pitches right down the middle, thus giving the batters an advantage to get more hits/home runs. It would take away from the offense and make more of a pitchers game, but should decrease the game times. At least it makes some sense to me.
