Scoreless inning? Only one runner left on? Bor-ing! Is this turning in to a pitchers' duel?

Heh. Wait til you see the 4th inning.

Yeah, just wait. This game is going to end up being 27-25. Or something like that.

It would be neat if going through the cards in order recreated an actual significant game from history. Obviously not with respect to player but outcome. But that would take quite a bit of coordination.

Andy said...

Not really, Split--they had to come up with the events for each card somehow. They could've done it simply by opening up a play-by-play account of a famous game and putting each play on each card.

Andy said...

Splint, even.

Splint Chesthair said...

Well, I said it would take coordination because I was thinking maybe they put some thought into the action on the back of the players card (good players=good hits) but doesn't appear they did (McCovey and Yaz ground out?). If they did put thought into it, they'd have to coordinate with card numbers and basically lay the whole set out or you'd get nonsense card numbers. But since it doesn't appear that they matched Play Ball outcome to the player on the obverse then it's much more likely.

Splint Chesthair said...

er, much more possible, I don't think it's very likely though.
