Let’s make baseball longer and more boring

It seems like at least once a season, there will be a bevy of tedious articles where people flap their hands and faint like ladies in Victorian novels about the length of baseball games and how that means people will soon stop going to games and watching on the television. Baseball is long and boring, they say, something has to change! I say NO! It’s too short and not boring enough. MLB is not doing enough to stop people watching! This is my 20-point plan for making baseball better.

In 1997, Michael Sorkin Studio was invited by the LA Times to speculate on the future of Chavez Ravine.
"[W]e suggested creating a large new park. To leverage the conversion of a vast acreage of parking lots into green space, we have proposed developing a one-hundred-yard-deep band around the stadium where all parking would be consolidated and a series of towers would rise."
