What would everyone here do in the following scenario?

World Series game 1, Team A wins 10-2, Team B has connection issues and has to keep trying to reconnect. Game finishes, but does not record. Support says they can't figure out what rare occurrence caused the problem, but can set the winner of Game 1 to Team A. No effect on fatigue but both owners agree not to use the Game 1 starting pitcher in Game 2.

Options are:
A. Team A leads 1-0, series continues starting with the second game on the schedule.
B. Game does not count, tough luck for Team A.

A. Team A leads 1-0.

I would take C.  Don't have CS reset the series, but have team B intentionally throw the game however necessary.  You still wind up with the fatigue that way, get the right result, seems like the best of both worlds.

Thought of that, but had a couple reservations:
- Player B had connection issues. If that comes up again and he has to leave, there's no way to ensure Team A wins (and even if he does, might have to use relievers/pinch hitters he'd never have used in a 10-2 win. There would be no way to know if Player B left because of connection issues or as a way to let Sparky try to win the game.
- I can see issues arising over when the SP are pulled in the replay. No record of the game, so either can pull his SP in the 3rd inning and claim that's when he was pulled in the original game, and the other can claim 'No it isn't' and things go downhill from there.

It doesn't seem like it should be that tough for guys to be honest about what happened.  I've intentionally tossed a playoff game before after a similar situation...

At least twice, actually.

Agreed - should be a simple thing. For a crash in a lop-sided game where I was losing, I've never sent in a ticket for it, just started the mop up to at least get the score to where it was. Or in the case of the ninth inning - tossed it.

In this case, both owners stated that the game had finished with a 10-2 score. It simply didn't get recorded.

With a couple of notable exceptions, I find it hard to believe anyone in LIVE would pick option B.
