it’s not how many runs you score, it’s when/where you score them

ah, George Will:

Hillary Clinton, 60, Illinois native and Arkansas lawyer, became, retroactively, a lifelong Yankee fan at age 52 when, shopping for a U.S. Senate seat, she adopted New York state as home sweet home. She may think, or at least would argue, that when she was 12 her Yankees really won the 1960 World Series, by standards of “fairness,” because they trounced the Pirates in runs scored, 55-27, over seven games, so there.

Unfortunately, baseball’s rules — pesky nuisances, rules — say it matters how runs are distributed during a World Series. The Pirates won four games, which is the point of the exercise, by a total margin of seven runs, while the Yankees were winning three by a total of 35 runs. You can look it up.

somebody needs to re-factor this into the form of a question, and ask Hillary during the Q&A of one of her appearances:  do you favor “fairness”, or do you favor the Rules?

  1. Perhaps she would prefer the GOP’s “winner takes all” approach?
