    Olympic Baseball problem

    Played the Over 9.5 between Canada/China.
    Final score 10-0 for Canada. After 8 innings the game was called on account of mercy rule. It was graded a winner after the game was finished(2 days ago). Today I log on to make my play to realize that they cancelled it. Has this happened to anyone else?

    I won't say it's a rarity at all, however it was regraded correctly IMO sir.

    It's a strange one, it shouldn't be right but it is.. the wagering rules for baseball weren't written with the mercy rule in mind.

    Yeah I know and understand the rules for totals, and the mercy rule in olympic baseball should be clearly stated. If its a push its a push, if they want to regrade it 2 days later I understand(though I dont like it), but to regrade it and not even send an email explaining the situation is disrespectful in my opinion.
