I've been following the World Series through the five-minute daily wrap-ups on MLB.
That saves me from spending four or five hours watching the games between the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers.
The first two games won by Boston have featured big home runs by the Red Sox and great plays such as Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi's leaping catch Wednesday night.
But I can't tolerate the endless pitching changes, hitters stepping out of the batter's box, the yawning waits between pitches.
It used to be dramatic for a hitter to foul off pitch after pitch. Now, it's like water torture.
I've found more interesting the spate of stories about the 1916 World Series between the Red Sox and the Dodgers, then in Brooklyn and then known as the Robins, or the Superbas.
Red Sox pitcher Babe Ruth won a 14-inning complete game in that series. The contest lasted two hours,. That would be two innings today.
