Umpires and Red Sox: Who do I hate more? ~ June 9

~~ Red Sox 8, Yankees 3 ~~

After a 3 hour and 27 minute rain delay the game started. Sabathia versus Beckett. Another pitcher that likes to hit Yankee batters. He hit Jeter, then he hit Alex (in the hip!). Then a half inning later, CC hits Ortiz.

Here is why I hate umpires, nothing was said to any of the Red Sox pitchers, in any of these games. CC hits Ortiz and the umpire is right out there, warning the benches. Then Beckett hit Granderson, after the warning. Did anything happen to Beckett? Was he thrown out? NO. That’s because Umpires have complete control, they are the little GODS on the field and there is no accountability. They don’t get fined for bad calls, they don’t get fired, NOTHING.

CC pitched good, then in the seventh the Red Sox got 7 runs. I am sitting here just waiting for this game to end. It has been a rather disheartening day, Joba has a torn medial collateral ligament in his right elbow making Tommy John surgery and a 10- to 14-month absence imminent. Possibly out for the year, and just when I was starting to like him. 😦

Phil Hughes has reportedly been throwing at 92 MPH, but he will have to go to a rehab assignment before he can come back and pitch. 😦

Russell Martin’s back is still bothering him, but an MRI showed no damage. Still he has missed two games. I’m blaming Jon Lester for hitting him with a pitch, that started it all. I can do that, this is my blog.

Red Sox are still ugly.
