Default *Official* 5/24 "Danks" A Lot; Sox-4 Marlins-3

An extra inning win no less

Danks wasn't bad...not bad at all.

After that putrid exhibition in the last of the 10th it was nice to see somebody come through in the 11th. Thought they were going to urinate away another golden chance.

All's well that ends well.

Wonder if Hawk is going to get a call from the commissioner for his remarks and reaction to the Hernandez debacle. . .

The sooner replay is expanded in baseball, the better. Same with the electronic strike zone. The human element sucks.

Didn't he get talked to by JR last year or the year before for some things he said about Joe West?

You will never, ever see a non human calling balls and strikes. That according to Joe Torre this week to Dan Patrick.

Keppinger basically bailed Hernandez out with the game-winner in the 11th. That was a CB Bucknor-level call. You'd have to think with this call and the absolute blown call in Cleveland with the A's, he's going to catch some attention from the league office.

Bad thing is, given the normal rotation of umpires, Hernandez will be behind the plate tomorrow.

Thankfully Joe Torre and the rest of his moronic ilk have to die eventually

Should we take up a collection so Hernandez can buy some glasses? He's behind the Plate tomorrow night with Jake on the Hump.

Hawk wasn't "over the top" about Hernandez, so he might get off. Stats freaks will tell you that 1 in 5 bang-bang calls are gotten wrong. That was one of them. Some of the bullpen underachievers did OK tonight. Let's hope Paulie's power comes back. The contact certainly has.

Thanks for ending it, Keppie.

Angel Hernandez should be fired. Period.

I really have a problem classifying that as a "bang-bang" play. Alex was clearly safe. If you can't get that call right you should not be umpiring Major League Baseball games.

Sox have won by the way eight of their last 12, probably the best stretch of the year.

Unfortunately with umpires it appears to be the same umpires blowing calls time after time. I thought when Selig took them over that things would change since they didn't have as much power anymore via the union but you can make the case things have gotten worse.
