That darn Olympic 11th inning thing

Good job Olympic breaths.

The 11th inning let’s get the hell out of Dodge and bust rule specially conjured for the last baseball Olympics (for a while) is a real loser.
Talk about sucking the excitement out of a baseball game.
Extra innings generally are interesting, even thrilling. The Olympic artificial flavoring of an ending — not so much.
They start the inning with runners on first and second and each team picking where to start in the lineup.
Why not just stage a simulated game from the start or a rousing game of over-the-line while you’re at it. Who needs innings. Just play it on the computer and reveal the results.
The reason for this lame format is just as lame. Get the games over with since the tourney only lasts two weeks.
USA USA  got burned by Cuba last time. This time they beat Japan (barely) for the honor of a rematch.
Can you say bronze medal?
