    I have it on TV in the background while I am doing things on the computer.

    The 2nd & 3rd innings were enough to put the D-backs on the back burner.

    With all games averaging about three hours, those regulation games that
    take 3 1/2 hours have become tedious. Especially over a 162-game
    regular season schedule.

    NBA, by comparison, has average games of about 2 1/2 hours, including
    a half-hour halftime. And many less games over a regular season.

    This year, I think that the juiced baseballs (more batters coming up)
    have made the length of MLB games really tedious.

    The league is defeating its own purpose -- to attract viewers.

    I think the Merril Kelly experiment may be over next year, doubt he makes the rotation .

    Yep, the up and down nature of this team is maddening, we can’t be up because we aren’t good, sell and restock the farm and just suck the second half .

    If you dump your good players, you'll suck for years to come. Just get some pitching and we'll be in the mix.

    Greinke, Ray, Holland, Perralta, Dyson, Lamb, Avila... Not all at one time, but several of these players need to be sold...of course, it takes two to tango, so if we aren't getting any quality in return, then we don't sell.

    The epitome of a .500 team. Can't even dominate the worst of the worst the league has to offer. I think this game speaks volumes to Hazen.
