Their chance of winning when down 1-0 isn't higher than when they're down 3-0? WTF?
It's a whole different ball game. Not that the result wouldn't be the same, Yankees loss, but it's a different ball game. Hell, as a kid, I'd ask the coach if he wanted the run or the hit when we were down 1-0 with a runner on 3rd. The implication was I knew, as a goddam kid, that I could produce a flyout. That question isn't asked, even by a kid, when the score is 3-0. Games are played differently based on the situation.
