Chicago @ Tampa Bay ALDS Game 2

Recommended Posts

f***ing pathetic anti-clutch offense. A bunch of pussies who don't want to swing the bat.

Why does everyone love Swish so much? He must lead the league in called 3rd strikes.

He was clearly looking for Ball 4. That looked like Strike 3 to me.

 

You have to swing the bat on anything close. He didn't, and TB on the verge of being up 2-0.

Swisher and Thome both bug me.

 

They wait and wait, hoping to walk, then end up K'ing.

GET TOSSED OZZIE! That was not a f***ing strike. f*** YOU CB!

 

 

You're nuts...that was a brilliant curveball...Swisher got done by Howell.

 

Howell has thrown some great pitches...this aint on the umpires at all. Its a joke to suggest it...

Even pro-Rays Reynolds acknowledges that Howell got silly calls that inning.

 

I like Dye-Konerko-Thome against Wheeler in the ninth if the Sox can hold the Rays in the 8th.

 

I gotta good feeling.

Sorry, Swisher had already seen ball 4 and ball 5 that AB.

 

Some of those calls this inning weren't even close. Ozzie just bent over and took s***ty umping this last week.

What is Buckner's vendetta against the Sox?

 

What a f***in joke.

 

He's been calling questionable strikes for 8 innings now. When will the offense realize this and protect the plate when it's close?

If I answer your question, you have to change your avatar.

 

 

 

 

 

Okay- they love him because "he is a good clubhouse" guy and he's funny and good with the media and keeps people relaxed and all that BS. Otherwise- he's the biggest disappointment of the year for the Sox IMO.

Our laughable offense is the reason we lost this game.

Yes, some of those pitches were not strikes, but especially with two strikes you can't be looking for an ump to save you.

If it's close enough to be called a strike, even incorrectly, it's close enough to take a swing at.

Stand up there with the tying run on base and you take 6 pitches and never swing once? Bulls***.

You have know idea what you are talking about. according to the zone on tv and gameday I have counted 8 pitches the last 2 innings that were called strikes that were really balls.
