More than once in a baseball fan's life, he or she meets someone who isn't a fan of America's pastime for one reason and one reason alone: The game is too boring to watch.
The next time that happens, may I suggest that you refer those folks to the past "week" of major league action, one that saw 17 games be decided by walk-off hits.
Not all of them were mammoth home runs, as we've come to expect when we hear the term "walk-off," but each got the job done, sending one team to victory and another home in agony.
I put "week" in quotation marks because I'm stretching the definition: Instead of your normal seven-day week, we're going with eight days of action. But as you'll see, there's a very good reason for making that one-time change.
