Will Vendors Sell Squishies, Too?

The White Sox announced that they will change the start times for some games to 7:11 as part of their whoring...errrrrr...marketing agreement with the 7-11 convenience store chain.

Yeah, yeah, I know it’s just the latest example of MLB’s willingness to do anything from a buck. I guess it’s just a logical extension of the thought process that brought us the Pepsi Starting Lineup, the Cellular One First Call to the Bullpen, the Budweiser Play of the Game, and the Southwest Airlines How Far Did Fly home run measurement.

Just curious, though...if the Wrigley Co. wanted to market Extra gum with the White Sox, could they demand that every game go into extra innings?
