… following the most demoralizing loss I can remember in a while:
- Can a closer survive by throwing one pitch, over and over, for three straight games?
- Is trying to make an out in the bottom of the ninth sound fundamental baseball?
- If pinch running is acceptable with two outs in an inning, why is it unacceptable with zero outs in the inning?
I don’t care what the answers are. Jonathan Papelbon and Terry Francona, you both fail the exam. Jason Bay, you get a gold star. Too bad the rest of the class couldn’t follow your example.
