Mudcats, Yankees Agree To Play Boring Game

Updated Sunday August 12, 2018 by J Biggs.

The Mudcats and Yankees met for the second time of the season in a game almost completely unremarkable in every facet of the game.

Prior to the game commencing, the managers for each team met with the umpires to express their complete indifference to playing the game competitively. The manager's bantered back and forth before finally agreeing to play the game at approximately 3/4 speed. The manager's agreed that there is still plenty of baseball left in the season, including the playoffs, and now is not the time to overexert oneself and risk injury. With everyone having full-time jobs, the managers agreed the best thing to do at this point was to coast nonchalantly into the playoffs.  

Mudcats manager Chris Smith returned to the dugout to give his team the instructions. "A good indication if you're playing at the proper speed is if your pace is faster than a jog but slower than a sprint".  Smith continued, "we've worked hard to get to this point in the season and now it's time to take a game off as we approach the final leg of the season. I for one will be thinking of all the other things that I could be doing other than playing baseball, like taking my pet rock to the Vet". "What do you think my pet rock's name is?" asked Smith. "Rocky? someone said. "No... it's Steve.... my pet rock's name is Steve" replied Smith.

Once the game began, both teams sauntered to the bottom of the second inning where the Yankees scored two runs presumably on a pair of sacflys or some kind of boring play like that. Not to be outdone, the Mudcats responded with a sac fly of their own in the 4th inning. While the players played at a leisurely pace, the pace of play was anything but leisurely. Twenty-three minutes after the game began the game was nearly over as players for both teams routinely swung casually swung at the first pitch for routine outs to everyone's delight. 

The Yankees held a 3-1 lead heading into the top of the 7th. The Mudcats drew a leadoff walk and found a way to get the baserunner in position to score on yet another sac fly cutting the deficit to 3-2. The Mudcats then brought the tying run to third base and were down to their final strike when the game took a sudden and dramatic turn. When the Yankees pitcher unleashed a wild pitch, Drob dashed from third to score the tying run. Drob slid into home as the tag was applied to score the tying run.  However, the sudden change of pace was too much for one person who called Drob out on the play, ending the game 3-2 for the Yankees.
