    does anyone else think the newbury coach should've just forfeited at some point. i mean when it got up to, say, 31-1 after three innings, well, maybe you just walk away. i realize these kids are just here to play ball and no one's going pro. i'm not certain i'd forfeit if i was the coach but you have to do a reality check at some point. it's funny to us but not to those kids.

    Well, at least they survived their "We'll Score A Run For Every Fan Or You Win A New Car" promotion. God, what were they thinking?

    If I'm one of the pitchers I'd probably want to surrender but if I'm a position player I'd want to keep playing. Baseball season's short enough in New England as it is. You only get so many chances to play. I'd want to get in as many innings as possible.

    How this game went seven innings is beyond me.

    i can see that logic about the weather. but i played baseball at a division III school in a northern state and we lost many a game by 10 or more runs. they were not fun. it never got this bad so i don't remember ever wanting to quit, but i occasionally thought of the futility of the entire exercise. looking back, baseball is fun and i'd love to be playing, but nothing is fun about being beaten so soundly you have no chance of competing.

    I've been out there when your pitcher can't get anybody out and line drives are sailing past both sides of your head. It's an experience in itself, probably one I'm better off for having gone through.

    Maybe we played against each other. I played one year at a DIII school up north too. I always wanted to get in as many innings as we could. It's no fun getting drilled but I don't like stopping early either.

    Bridgewater left 16 men on base.

    That's fucking sloppy baseball.

    MM, that may be the most adorable sig ever. Bet the kitten pitches better than Newbury.

    But not as good as Codas.

    The codas are seriously considering a transfer to Newbury. They know they'll get innings.

    Good point. The codas are all about quality IPs.
