The Minnesota Twins baseball season ended suddenly. After thrilling us all in Minnesota with by winning over 100 games, they didn't win a game in the playoffs.
The Minnesota Twins baseball seaon also ended slowly. Their three playoff games clocked in at 11 hours and 51 minutes total time.
Baseball is my favorite sport and I enjoy rooting for the Twins. But Major League Baseball really needs to do something to speed up the pace of the games. They've put in some changes to try to speed up the pace, but games just keep getting longer. My guess (and hope) is that we'll see pitch clocks soon. My pet peeve is whenever they bring in a relief pitcher in the middle of an inning even though he's warmed up in the bullpen, he still needs to spend time warming up when he comes into the game. But, I digress.
Even though they had a wonderful season it's disappointing for it to end that way. Some day we'll be able to look back and appreciate the joy this season brought. But until that time, there's always next year.
