The play by play is funnier

Top 1st: Kansas City
- Batter flied out to center
- A. Callaspo grounded out to pitcher

0 runs, 0 hits, 0 errors
Kansas City 0, Minnesota 0

Bottom 1st: Minnesota
- D. Span struck out looking
- A. Casilla walked
- A. Casilla to second
- J. Mauer struck out looking

Top 2nd: Kansas City
- M. Teahen popped out to left
- B. Butler grounded out to shortstop

Bottom 2nd: Minnesota

Some solid two out innings there. Even some one out ones - and some innings that ended on a hit :-D

It didn't bother me today though, I just went to mlb and sportsline to make sure I knew what was going on.

lol if you take the play by play as it is, this would be the most convoluted game ever played.

Top 5th: Kansas City
- B. Butler to third
- B. Butler to third
- B. Butler scored, J. Buck to third
- A. Gordon lined out to second

Top 6th: Kansas City
- B. Bonser relieved G. Perkins
- R. Shealy to third, M. Teahen to second
- R. Shealy to third, M. Teahen to second
- C. Breslow relieved B. Bonser
- M. Teahen struck out swinging
- B. Butler grounded into fielder's choice, R. Shealy out at home, M. Teahen to third, B. Butler to second

1 runs, 0 hits, 0 errors

Bottom 8th: Minnesota
- R. Ramirez relieved J. Bale
- M. Tolbert out at second
- M. Tolbert out at second
- M. Tolbert flied out to left
- N. Punto walked, D. Young to second
- M. Tolbert at designated hitter

I'm laughing so hard at imagining the game actually progressing like this. :-B

That reminds me of playing with ghost runners when we only had like 5 people to a team way, way back in the day. I've had my share of HRs where I knocked myself in.

I think everyone has had their share of homeruns where they knock themselves in. The real challenge is to hit one and not score.

I meant knocked myself in twice on the same hit. I specifically told myself not to make this mistake. :-S

Stats are not correct for many players as well. It makes it a little difficult to decide what pick ups i need for tomorrow.

Thumbs Down Yahoo :-t :-t :-t :-t :-t :-t :-t
