As League Championship Series Begin
LOOKING THROUGH THE LENS: ESPN's Jim Rome said of Selig, "The next postseason game that you play in under four hours will probably be the first. ... There's no clock in baseball. Nobody cares if the slowest game ever takes another five or seven minutes. But we all care about some ump butchering a call which costs somebody a game. Join the rest of us here in the 21st century, Bud" ("Jim Rome Is Burning," ESPN, 10/14). FANHOUSE.com's Jay Mariotti wrote, "It's not healthy for the sport's future when playoff drama is haunted by perpetual anxiety over the next umpiring blunder. If baseball wants high credibility, not the current crudibility, Selig and his men will act swiftly for a change and recognize their crisis at hand" (FANHOUSE.com, 10/13).
