Well, we won. It feels kinda good - better than losing, at any rate. I stopped watching after two innings, despite my boss' advice to hang out at the crappy bar where I was watching the game and have several beers. It's good to have a boss like that - and he's related to Mort and Walker Cooper! So anyway, I don't have a lot to say about the game, except that it was disheartening to hear Frank Robinson imply that he was sticking with today's lineup. Letting Inning-Endy and Guzman bat 1-2 is chivalrous in the sense that you're not giving yourself an advantage over your opponent, even if your opponent is letting his pitcher lead off. In the words of Speed Racer, however, I want to win and that's all. I did have a pretty involved post in the works, but a friend came over and we wound up watching From Justin to Kelly, so it'll have to wait until tomorrow.
One more thing: a highly placed source informs me that the EA baseball game has a rather stunted franchise mode, specifically in the way player contracts are handled. Anyone have the ESPN one, and if so, is it any better?
