It's bad enough that under normal circumstances we have to constantly see Boston on the East Coast Sports Programming Network--do we really need the extra dose of Northeastern media myopia?
Grumble, grumble--and yes, Middlebrooks was obstructing on that play...
Yes, me too. I often refer to them as the other Sox, as THE Sox had the term sox first.
I hate on the MLB iOs app that they often use the nicknames for Other Sox players.
I rooted for the Other Sox in the 2004 postseason. Since then I've grown so tired of the Other Sox, their fans and the media coverage of them. Doesn't help how Cubbie clowns glom onto the Other Sox.
And, yes, you're right that was the right call to end the game.
