i just dont understand what tavarez was thinking

ahead in the count

you KNOW bellhorn k's a lot... and he just hit a ball pretty good foul. you have two strikes on him. why give him something to pull? pound him outside until the counts either full, he k's, or he gets out or on base. live and die by the outside right there...

that didnt cost them the game though.

woody not being able to pitch at all

pujols rolen edmonds doing NOTHING

calero walking the first two out of three batters he faces

renteria not taking an extra step and fielding that ball cleanly by 'tek

plenty of blame to go around

Fox didn't show enough replays of that run.

As I saw it, Manny fired the ball to Varitek, who caught it and had the plate blocked. As Marquis slid into him, Varitek flinched slightly to the outside. Marquis hit Varitek in the chest and may or may not have touched Varitek's glove. Marquis's inside foot then touched home plate.

I thought Edmonds got jobbed on his last strikeout too. I couldn't tell where the strike zone was all game.

fox didnt show enough replays because it was clear he was safe

his foot slid under tek before varitek even had complete control of the baseball.

the strike zone was the worst ive seen all playoffs. no consistency high or low, in or out.

i hate baseball right now.

Also, is there any way the blown save can be credited to Manny instead of to Foulke?

Did anyone else catch Tavarez crying in the dugout after the game?

That game set baseball back a few decades.
Anyway, the only thing that really matters...1 down, 3 to go.

If you're a gambler and want to live dangerously, bet the under in any game in this series...man this could be a high scoring series, we'll see tonight with Schilling vs. Morris if the scoring can be held down a bit.

Eh, I doubt the scoring can be held down. We're talking Fenway, after all, which is more like a pinball machine than an actual ballpark (poke the ball somewhere, anywhere and it's likely to bounce off a wall).

I found this forum post very interesting, and true too.

Quote:
To start our story, go to the tape of tonight's game and watch Woody Williams' first two innings of work. Watch him try to establish the low strike. Watch him try to throw around the knees- inside, outside, and center. And watch Montague call a ball every single time.

Watch Williams try to establish the outside strike- that's the left side of the plate, for right-hand hitters. Watch Montague consistently call balls.

For some crazy reason, Williams isn't able to get strikes. He keeps pitching down the middle and the BoSox keep getting contact. Wonder why.

Now, fast forward your tape to the top of the fifth. Jim Edmonds is at the plate. Arroyo throws a low strike. Amazingly, Montague actually calls it a strike.

The Fox cameras happen to be right on Edmonds' face. He starts talking to the ump while he prepares for the next pitch. I can't read lips very well, but he seems to say something like "How was that a strike? You haven't been calling that pitch all night".

Mr. Edmonds strikes out.

Now, fast forward to the eighth inning, Jim at the plate, bases loaded. Two pitches that were obviously inside (both two or three inches further in than Williams' pitches in the first inning). Oour friend Jim is called out looking.

Coinkey-dinkey? I think not. Why is Montague officiating the World Series?
The Cardinals should do a lot better tonight. I'm really not worried about 'em. After all, they've been perfect at home this post season, and I'm sure they can pick up at least 2 wins in Boston.
