MLB want's faster games, they can always go to 7 innings, cut down the time between innings but that will never occur.

And while I'm on my soap box, how about cutting down the regular season so the playoffs don't end in November?

I see a day where Major League Baseball broadcasts will do what the WWE has already done with their SmackDown program.

They have (I believe) two commercial segments during every show where live action is shown in split-screen along with the commercials.

NBC announced last week they will be reducing their ad time by 10% across their network and changing how they are packaging them.

I believe it's just a matter of time before MLB adopts such changes.

What about one inning with 27 outs?
