to make it more bearable

I think that there should be a time limit on baseball games.  Maybe 2 hours, or 2.5 hours, to make it more watchable.  Having an untimed game is very difficult to plan a day around as a fan or a player.  At least in college basketball you can count on a 2 hour game that is usually close in the last few minutes.  Alternatively, the powers that be could require the fielding team to have just 6 players in the field.  Wouldn't it be fun to see them scramble around to try and make that inning ending second out?  I know it's a lot to ask, but why don't they also play by the same rules in both leagues?  Pitchers hitting or sitting to allow for a designated hitter.  Too confusing.
