Anyone else think they ran the piece just as an excuse to take a dig at the Sox? Talk about twisting the knife with mustard and relish!
Eh, it's a tough call. It didn't happen in the 9th, but I can see how that could be considered exciting as Trout's homer happened in the bottom of the 8th against one of the best pitcher's in baseball.
All that said, **** Len Casper. He got his job after three other people turned it down. He's a leftover, and he knows it.
