Enter Scott Downs. Now I'm not going to shit on Downsie. He didn't have it. That is going to happen over 162 games. But I am going to shit on the manager because he didn't have anybody else warmed up IN CASE Downs didn't have it. What's the harm in getting another reliever up to start that fateful eight inning?
Now most fans seem to be up in arms about his choice not to pinch hit in the ninth for John Buck. I will give you that. But it really should have been a tie game at that point.
Some notes from the game:
The closer you sit, the bigger the mistakes look.....
Ortiz getting pinch hit for was AWESOME. Some Red Sucks fans in the row ahead of me actually turned around because of my laughter with a disgusted look on their faces.....and I then directed my laughter at them.
We lose 2 - 1 on tweeting Tuesday. You would think the cheap bastards at Rogers would have wifi in the Dome considering they are in the fucking communication business. Nope.
