xaxat May 5, 2017 Share May 5, 2017 I haven't convinced myself of this argument, but I think this actually kind of makes sense. The minor leagues are developmental and the they don't have the kind of roster flexibility the major league teams do. So the commitment of young arms to complete an interminable extra inning game with limited ability to compensate afterwards isn't a good thing. In addition, where I live, in upstate NY, extra inning games can really suck for the fans. The temperature drops to the fifties or even forties and it becomes an endurance event with you and the remaining hundred people. I don't drink coffee, but I once bought a cup just to keep my hands warm for a 14 inning Binghamton Mets (RIP) game. 1 Link to comment
