The Los Angeles Dodgers have been through an odd season on their path to becoming NL West champions. They experienced difficult rain delays, extra-inning marathons, and more unusual events that added to an already lengthy regular season.

MLB formed a committee to look into methods that will speed a game along, which may prove difficult given the wide array of player routines. The Dodgers heard from the League earlier this season when they were issued a warning for relief pitchers moving to slowly from the bullpen to the mound, and players taking too much time to get in the batter’s box.

Comments from both Jamey Wright and Darwin Barney suggest they aren’t among those concerned with needing to move games along more quickly. Wright argued baseball fans don’t have an issue with the length of games and Barney added players have become accustomed to playing three-hour games.
