Game 104 recap: Thank you for the raaaaaaain, yeah, yeah…

Calling a game with bases loaded, two out and the batting team down three? Thanks, umps!

Highest WPA: Clayton Mortensen, .182
Lowest WPA: Dustin Pedroia, -.102

Hopefully Josh Beckett doesn’t have to miss too much time after his back spasm tonight. I also hope that every single fan who booed him tonight feels really really bad about themselves for booing an awesome, injured pitcher. They won’t, because the narrative surrounding the team is that Beckett is fat and lazy and terrible, but they should.

    But now the narrative is also that fans shouldn’t boo someone for being fat and lazy and terrible! Look, he’s a huge prick and worthless on the field and the only reason the Red Sox didn’t win the World Series last year, but why on earth would people boo him? That’s uncalled for!

    (Just because the media conditioned them to do it doesn’t absolve fans of blame here, but it also shouldn’t go unsaid anytime anyone brings the topic up.)

  1. No trackbacks yet.
