02:29 pm - [beisbol] well, the double play was nice
Well, if Boston's golden boy Dice-K retired after that lovely first inning and cashed out that contract, he'd have been paid rougly $7.42 million for each ball he gave up.

The odds of him giving up a homer on the first pitch, by the way, were 10,000 to 100, according to the office line-guy.

Yes, yes it is.

And I have a hard time believing that 1800ish Baseball games, 18 of them are openned with a homer on their first pitch.

I believe in this case, the odds meant you'd have to put up $100 minimum to get a payoff.

I, too, am a bit confused, but I'm not the bookie here.

Dice-10-K. Not bad, not bad.

We were all bracing for a Schilling meltdown after the first, tho. Hoo boy.
