OK that's out of my system for now anyway but back to the subject at hand. As well as watching the hockey game, I'm also reading Slow Heat by Jill Shalvis. Overall I'm enjoying this book, but I've just got to a scene that shows the author doesn't know baseball.
The hero is the catcher for a major league baseball team. It's the first game of the season - keep this in mind - FIRST game of the season - and the pitcher is the hero of her previous book. It's the ninth inning and Pace is still pitching. There is not a chance in hell that in the FIRST game of the season, they would have the starting pitcher in for nine innings.
