CWS: Okay, lemme do the math here

By Eric Sorenson - June 20, 2006

The first six outs of the game took about 42 minutes. Now, if I'm doing my "state-school" math correctly, that meeeeeans... (42, double the number of pitches for each half-inning... factor in the throws over to first base... multiply that by the coefficient of wind to center field... and dropped beach balls on the field of play... carry the two) it'll be about a 13 hour, 25 minute game.

Then of course, what if there are extra innings? Oh dear lord!

I've decided that if this keeps up I'm going to have Mark Etheridge and Kendall Rogers start warming up.
