According to Anthony (a Mets fan),
Your team doesn’t always win.
There are rules (but in baseball the team that goes first doesn’t get to go last too).
Every person has good days and bad days, and any one player’s bad day can change the course of the whole event.
Often a bad bounce can change the momentum of the entire event.
Money, unfortunately, has a lot to do with how well your team plays, and the result.
The game is rarely won in the last inning.
