Monuments 9395, Mallards 9392

I lost the wild-card race in the Eddie Plank League (an international Bill James league that's been going strong for something like eighteen years) by 3.5 points yesterday.

Over the course of the season, the difference amounts to one inning of relief pitching, or a single and a walk. If Dustin Pedroia had played the last game of the double header, or if he'd stretch one double into a triple, or if just one error had been ruled a hit, I would've, could've, should've.
