Then There’s That: Twins-Sox Gamer IV

Nick Blackburn is on the mound for the Twins, who face Boston's Josh Beckett at Fenway in the final game of a four-game series.  Comment away.

If you think umpires should be replaced with machines, example A would be the 0-2 pitch from Acees just now. Literally right down the middle and called a ball. Pathetic.

It always annoys me when a pitcher jumps off the mound and points frantically in the air like that after a fly ball to the outfield. Has any outfielder in history ever found a ball he was tracking in the sky thanks to the pitcher’s pointing? I think not.

Ouch. Not even going to say it. That was a brutal way to follow-up on the break that put Varitek on first.
I’m out. If the Sox pull this out, I don’t particularly want to see it. And if they don’t, I’m sure no sf will miss my commentary. Looking forward to the Yanks next 16-games-in16-nights stretch, which begins tomorrow! Night all.

Good win. Carl with a nice drive through the wind. Worth staying up and enduring the frustration. Carl’s having a tidy little May so far.
But what’s up with Pedey? Holy slump.

Hoey isn’t a very good pitcher, but that was a pretty good AB there by Crawford. Nothing epic, 7 pitches. But he fouled off a couple before he got the pitch he wanted.
