  • Spring training games that end in a tie?

    Tonight's Yankees/Redsox game ended in a tie, without going into extra innings. But I've seen some spring games that did go into the 10th inning. Why do some games go extra, but this one did not? Was it because tonight's game ended at night? If this had been an afternoon game, would they have let it go into the 10th?
    It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shakes, the shakes become a warning. It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.

    I was watching that game, albeit with the sound muted, while listening to music. They showed Girardi in the dugout in the ninth inning (I think) and he made a slicing hand gesture across his throat, which I took as a signal to the umpires that he wanted to end the game then and there. Kenny Singleton was saying before I muted the sound that Girardi had brought a bunch of the lower-minor league kids down to give them a chance to play in a major-league game, and indeed the whole Yankee infield and pitchers were names I never heard of, and they looked mighty young. I guess Joe didn't want to keep them up too late on a school night.
    They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

      And Bobby V raised a stink about Girardi calling the game:
