S&P Downgrade of U.S. Credit Rating Broken Down Into Baseball Terms by NESN Nation

With news that Standard & Poor's has downgraded the United States credit rating from AAA to AA+ on Friday, many Americans may be struggling to understand exactly what that means.

NESN Nation's Nate Hinchey tried to figure out how the U.S.'s debt crisis can best be understood in baseball terms.

What he came up with was that Australia is like Josh Reddick and America is like J.D. Drew. Check out the video to see it all come together.

If you can make sense of things any better than Nate or have your own baseball analogy, make sure to let us know in the comments below.
