If you like baseball and golf, as I do, you lived a full Sunday.
The British Open was on when we awoke and the Twins tried to play until we were dead asleep.
The results were mixed. Jordan Spieth turned in one of the great turnarounds in golf history and the Twins played sloppy, uninspired baseball. The common denominator: Neither should have taken so long.
I like Spieth and love watching him play. But no golfer should be allowed to take 20 minutes to take a drop.
Speaking of eternities, the Twins played their longest undelayed nine-inning game in franchise history Sunday, and for no good reason.
Baseball's timelessness was once one of its charms. No more. Now what we're witnessing is players moving about with no urgency and pitching changes that no one wants to see.
