If you think Yankees-Red Sox games are interminable, you're not alone.
SI.com and the MLB Network broke down Sunday night's glacial 10-inning Red Sox victory and confirmed what everybody knew.
SI.com found that, in selected innings, Boston's Josh Beckett averaged 23 seconds between pitches with nobody on and 43 seconds with runners. He once took 59 seconds between pitches to Eric Chavez.
The rules say a pitcher must deliver a pitch within 12 seconds with no one on, or a ball is added to the count.
But, as Tom Verducci of SI.com pointed out, no umpire has enforced that rule in two years, since Boston closer Jonathan Papelbon was targeted in 2009.
