This one's going to be exciting, and no, I'm not punching my face as I type this.
As an exclusive to this site, courtesy of David @ Fangraphs, here's where this game left off the first time we played it ... Indians up by four runs, two outs in the top the of the fifth, bases loaded, one strike away from going official, with almost a 90 percent chance of an Indians victory if the game went nine innings.
You won't find this or even so much as a Box Score from that game on any other site -- that's how thoroughly that game and its stats were blotted out of existence by weather and gamesmanship -- and, admittedly, by a sudden lapse in control by Byrd. And if those things aren't motivation enough to produce a great game, I don't know what is. [Jay]
