Your logic is so flawed it's beyond reasonable. It doesn't matter what inning you get the runs or give them up. It's about scoring more than the other guy. You just think they are more important in your head.
Like I said, same exact game, same ending, just the runs scored in a different inning. I honestly cannot believe you cannot fathom that. A game decided in the first inning is just as important as one decided in the 9th.
Think of your blackjack analogy. You won your first hand. Now on your last hand you already have money to keep playing if you want. That last hand is not your last $5.
BTW...you must not be a good gambler if your last hand is always the one where you are down to your last $5.
It's not more important, and your logic is so horribly flawed maybe you need a refresher course from whatever school you went to that teaches "logic."
Lol. I have actually taught logic classes in college (University of Cincinnati).
Thanks for the condescending lecture. I presented my argument. I have presented similar arguments in my classes. If you wish to ignore it, fine, have a nice day... go Reds!
