A 1-0 pitcher's duel may be boring for some casual baseball fans who just want to watch homeruns... for someone who works many games at Target Field, a 2 hour-15 minute game is wonderful (particularly when the Twins win.)
Like the judge that wants the case over, a civil case that the plaintiff waited 2 years to get his day. Some want it to end, and some want the full deal.
Fans come from miles to see games, have planned and anticipated the day for months. They come early as they can to watch the field dressed, batting practice, and maybe see their favorite close up, get an autograph, and a bobblehead, and find out where the players will exit after the showers, and wait there too to see them and get a chance to extend the special experience. It might be a young kids first MLB baseball game, something that will make a new fan for life. I get that those that might work the games like it ending quickly, but not me, never me. I think extra innings is the greatest thing that can happen. Drama, more baseball.... I get to be there longer. But I get where you are coming from..... I guess.
I loved this game. Time is no issue. Pitcher's duel, or explosive offense.... I love the drama of a close one, a comeback, a shutout, and the comfort of a blowout. Love love love.
