Any research on if the rise in strikeouts/ three true outcomes has resulted in more pitches per nine innings when scores are similaror more pitches per at bat? More pitches requires more time per game.

Also is fingers in pies more tied to making the pie versus eating the pies🤔… back when people made them by hand.
