Ian Anderson’s early exit shows MLB’s problem with starting pitching

ATLANTA – Watch a magnificent action movie on your phone. Rides in a tightly tuned sports car with a donut spare tire. Listens to the Vienna Philharmonic on cheap headphones. See what has become of baseball, and its beginning pitching.

The excitement is gone.

We are kings of convenience. The Braves beat the Astros in World Series Game 3 on Friday night, 2-0, in what could have been an all-time classic, how about a no-hitter in place through seven innings on a humid, thick night. Instead, two races were scored. 11 jugs were used. No story was written. Unless you’re in disgrace.
