Last Night's Ninth Inning, Summarized by Three Statements Heard During It

“Y'know, some 2-1 games are thrilling. Real nail-biters. This game isn't one of them. This one is just boring. This is the kind of game you hope somebody who's never seen baseball before doesn't get. Because why would they ever watch it again?”

“YES! WOO-HOO! CARLOS! DID YOU SEE THAT? I can't believe I ever thought this game was boring! This game is the best!”

“Y'know, this game has become way too exciting. The top of the ninth was perfect. This bottom of the ninth? This is too much. It's disproportionate, it's gilding the lily. It's downright rude, is what it is.”
