So I watched the All-Star game yesterday. Rather, I watched extra innings, as Jonah did not go to sleep until then. The game went on a bit long (santina went to bed before it was over), but it was not without excitement. As in many extra-inning games, one-run strategies dominate (usually for good reason), shich leads to some interesting decisions…like sending Dioner Navarro (?!?) home in the 11th instead of holding him at third. Who was the third base coach for the AL, Wendell “Send ’em home” Kim? Or maybe Dale Sveum? (Red Sox fans will know what I mean)
At any rate, it was an exciting game, complete with the specter of a tie looming large as the night wore on.
