The problem isn't the time to the mound, it's that managers switch pitchers 3 to 4 times an inning late in the game.

Plus, hold on for this mind blower.....A 9 inning game is a long game! I know it's confusing and hard for MLB baseball to understand this but the game has no clock and managers manage it that way.

If anything it would extend the game for the reasons already mentioned. The pitcher would have to wait for the cart to pull up and pick him up.

While it would be "cool" to see - I fail to see how it would save time.

Hear hear. I am glad the game has gotten more strategic. The length is fine, MLB cannot give in to the ADD generation.

I was a doubter, but maybe, just maybe we can win with pitching, defense and fundamentals.
