Last night’s Boston-Tampa Bay game went 3 hours, 49 minutes. And this was for a 3-1 Red Sox victory.
Yes, that was an improvement over Monday’s 4:19 affair. Many people blamed the slow moving Buchholz for that one.
Well, who was at fault for Tuesday night’s drip-by-drip game? I tried to make it to the end, but with the game moving so slow, it proved to be a wonderful sleep aid. I didn’t see the final score until this morning.
In the other game Tuesday, Detroit’s 8-6 victory over Oakland went 3:25, which now seems swift compared to Boston-Tampa Bay.
As I said, I’ll continue to monitor the game times during the postseason. Assuming I can stay awake.
