Hot Stove

My buddy Charlie sent me this surprise gift, a perfect snow-day diversion. After lunch Amy and I rolled the dice and played a swift inning, getting into game shape. I was the home team, and induced two pop outs and struck out a batter, leaving a runner, who'd singled, on base. In the bottom half my team took advantage of shaky starting pitching: a lead-off single, two wild pitches, each advancing a runner, a two-run homer, a single, a walk, another single scoring the runner from second, a pop out, and merciful (for Amy) strike out. After an inning of play, 3-0 Joe.

Game was then interrupted by a nap.

Pitchers and catchers report in two and half weeks. Allegedly.

Skip that game and play Strat-O-Matic baseball.
