I like the extra time between pitches to allow time for me to check out the "scenery" in the ballpark around me.... :P :P :P

In an effort to speed up the game, how about a rule that a batter can only adjust the straps on his batting gloves one time per at bat? Seeing guys like Jeter adjust the straps after every pitch is annoying.

You know, it was sort of laughable when only Ron Hassey did it. But now so many players do it... I'm all for speeding up the game. I really baseball to be unwatchable these days. :cry:

Back to the whole speeding up the game thing, Jeff Sullivan presents Carlos Pena vs Jon Papelbon. Papelbon on his own averages 31 seconds per pitch, Pena at the plate averages 27.6 seconds per pitch. When they meet the average pitch time is a ridiculous 37 seconds between pitches.
