Pace of baseball a problem or charm?

Here’s the definitive test of how you feel about baseball in this spring of 2022, provided at the Small Park last night by the Brewers and Reds before 10,445 people, most of whom apparently were actually alive:

Ahead 5-1 in the 8th, Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell follows his Brewers-specific Book. It’s a good Book, one that has helped the Crew win lots of games the past couple seasons. Get six credible innings from a top-shelf pitcher such as Brandon Woodruff, Corbin Burnes or, last night, Freddy Peralta.

Shorten the game with a very good bullpen that more often than not relies on Brad Boxberger (7th inning), Devin Williams (8th) and Josh Hader (9th). Rinse and repeat. At least that’s how it’s supposed to work. Textbook Book.
