This game was ridiculously long.

Those of you of a certain age will remember how Johnny Carson used to make remarks like that, to which the retort was, "How long was it?"

No innuendo here, just facts. They barely got out of the second inning after an hour had gone by. Two hours, top of the fifth. Three hours, top of the seventh.

And this is just the beginning of spring training. At least it wasn't like one of those regular-season games which end up 3-2 and close to four hours because pitchers can't throw strikes and managers keep traipsing to the mound to switch pitchers.
