Why the Olympics killed baseball

You may know that the Olympics are killing off baseball and softball for 2012. The head of the Olympics committee blames Barry Bonds, according to Deadspin. I'm actually embarrased for this guy Rogge. How are we supposed to take him seriously?

Well, at lest we'll still have synchronized swimming at the 2012 games.

Yours is not necessarily the only correct answer. To follow your strategy you brutalized the bull pen - asking them to pitch the final 5 innings - assuming the game does not do into extra innings. Additionally, you use, in the 4th inning, your second bench player, leaving only 3 of Omar, Rohlinger, Roberts, Velez. None of those guys are locks to get a base hit, pick your poison, Velez or Roberts. But only having 3 left pretty much restricts your moves later in the game. Plus, you don't note, the Padres started a rookie who was not going to go deep into the game - ie we would be into their bull pen soon. Not the no brainer you postulate.

Actually, my point (in the previous post) was that this shows that the Giants no longer care about whether they finish 20 games under .500 or 22 games under .500 and that if they were contending, they would have DFAd Correia by now
