Hey Dale Scott: Watch Your Back

Afternoon Game!!! That means nothing gets done for the second half of the day at work. Technically nothing really gets done the first half either, so day baseball is the biggest anti- production event ever, and that's just fine by me.

On to the title there. Dale Scott, the home umpire this afternoon, single handedly ruined the Sox entire game plan (the plan being totally sucking for 2 1/2 hours and then start hitting in the bottom of the 9th) by calling Ortiz out on a strike that was waaaaaay outside and then nearly got Adrian Beltre to blow a gasket when he called a check swing a strike, even though it wasn't even close. Now was Papi ready to break back into pre-2008 mode and blast a home run? Probably not, but Dale didn't know that. For all Dale knew Ortiz might of had a pre-game shake and been ready to tear the cover off the ball. He was already 2-4. Maybe this was Ortiz's day to bring it back? Maybe Dale Scott needs a flaming bag of sh*t on his front steps tonight. Maybe I'm right. Maybe I should look up the laws of threatening people via blog form before I go any further?
