is there ANY benefit to a 90 minute mash using only 2 row.. crystal 20 and crystal 80? I am mashing right now and wondering why I am doing 90 minutes rather than 60???

Maybe a bit better efficiency but usually you're good to go after 60 minutes.

From what I understand, you only want to mash that long if you're mashing at a low temp, like 150 or below, to achieve full conversion.

Barelywine @ 148. Seems low, i would think you would want to mash around 154 - 155
