Funny stuff from the Marlins-Red Sox spring training game yesterday. First of all, they waited through a two hour, thirty-nine minute rain delay, just to start the game. Did the umpires not know this game doesn't count? How often will we see a game during the regular season survive through 2+ hours of a delay? Probably not much. They should have just called this one off.
Anyway, during the game, Anibal Sanchez threw a solid 89 pitches and looked sharp. The funny thing about the game though was in the 8th inning and the Marlins down by one run. They got their first two batters to reach base. Then, the game was called. Supposedly it was raining again and this time they couldn't wait. Oh well, the game doesn't count, right? This reminds me of when you are little and playing a sport against some kids and the moment they take the lead, they say it's time for them to go home. Lesson learned, Red Sox = Neighborhood Cheaters.
