    Does anyone think umps get warnings (like an employee does) for calling a crappy game like this??? Even for Liriano the zone is really small.

    [QUOTE]This is really a shame.  Bedard is throwing quality pitches on the corners and getting nothing from the ump.

    It would be different if he were wild, but he keeps hitting the same spots and ump still wont budge... It better go both ways!

    That's a good point you bring up. I wonder if teams file complaints and MLB employees investigate...Hopefully, Liriano gets same tight strike zone as Bedard did in 1st

    It makes no sense to make major league pitchers throw down the middle like that.  I guess this clown wants a high scoring game tonight, that or he just isnt in good position to see the black on the right side of the plate

    Bedard looks great.

    It's unfortuante MLB can't get rid of awful umpires like this guy.

    Seriously, I hate this umpire.

    [QUOTE]Miller-esque command, thus far, by Bedard. Would be nice to get out of this with only one run allowed.
    Posted by CMHBOSOX[/QUOTE]

    Friend:  don't know what game you're watching - Bedard's getting squeezed like a ripe melon.  NESN's showing those "balls" on queztek and a bunch were strikes.  "Miller-esque?"  Er, okay.

    good points Red-Sox and J-bay

    I can live with a tight zone...as long as it is equal for both sides.  I would like to think that the Sox would notice this...and take more pitches tonight.

    Amazingly, McLelland was voted the second best umpire by MLB players as recently as last year (behind Joyce - the one that blew the Gallaraga perfect game last year).

    We didn't get some borderline calls that inning but you typically don't get the benefit of the doubt when you have no command/are all over the place.

    Playing from behind again. Starting to get use to this...Unfortunately....

    Red Sox batters might as well wait to swing until they have 2 strikes on them

    Francona better tell the batters to not swing...see if we get that zone.
    oh wait...he just called a strike that was a ball for bedard.  THIS IS CRAP

    I watch gameday while watching the game. There were 10 of Bedard's pitches called balls that were strikes. The problem is that Bedard looks like he's not doing well, when in fact, he had a very good inning. Hopefully the coaching staff realizes this.

    It's all about the end result!  and judging by the "results" they can play from behind every day as far as I'm concerned.

    Just got in. 4 walks and 37 pitches by Bedard in the first? Not so good. Glad he got out of it with only two scoring.

    Someone should take McClelland into the locker room between innings and let him see the pitch track on tv... Maybe he doesnt know he's being stingy with the strike calls

    better second for bedard but dangerous, had to throw balls right down the middle of the plate. burnett walked the bases loaded in the 6th, double by mathis 3-1 angels

    With the long first inning and the pitch count , looks like another short night for Bedard.

    Happy with that walk for Pedroia. 3-2 pitch was very questionable.

    Poor game plan by the Red Sox so far.

    There's a 70% chance that you will walk if you don't swing at anything as this umpire is god awful.

    I'm getting tired of watching Gonzalez roll over pitches and ground into double plays. Meanwhile. AJ Burnoutt is now sporting a bleach blonde mop top/bowl cut, and getting rocked for 4 in the 6th. 4-1 LAA.
