We all know baseball games are getting stretched into interminable lengths. Most of them seem to surpass three hours now. What can and/or should be done to reduce the length of games to something more tolerable?

Simple, they instituted a time restriction between pitches a while back. The only problem is that I have never seen umpires enforce it. Not only should pitchers be forced to pitch but batters need to be in the box ready to swing within an enforced time frame. Other things that they can do is limit how often the catcher can talk to the pitcher. We all know that this will not happen with things like expanded instant replay and other baseball issues taking precedence at the meetings. One rule change that should happen next year when interleague play is throughout the season is that the team with the best record should get the homefield advantage during the World Series. The current means of deciding based on who wins an exhibition game is ludicrous.

EVERYONE thinks the method of deciding home field advantage during the World Series right now is bullshit. You think that's incentive to a good player who's with a floundering team in Kansas City or Seattle?
