Umpires are like wasps
You piss one off (Joe West anyone) and all of a sudden there's a swarm of the bastards trying to get a piece of you. See above informational flyer for more information on wasps and what to do when you see one. I don't blame the umpires for the Sox somehow blowing that game last night. Sure there was that Ortiz ejection, the Pedroia called second strike in the 7th that somehow the Amica Pitchzone called a strike (I have my questions regarding the calibration of said "pitch zone"), but it was all Sox when it came to dropping the game to the Royals. Not cool fellas, not cool at all.
Now today, they get Greinke. What's the best way to recover from a 3 game losing streak? Well, it's not going against the guy that has like a 0.7 ERA the last two Aprils.
However I am proud to report that no Red Sox players were harmed in the giant fountain last night. There's always a positive. That and Javier Vasquez got lit up last night.
