In response to scash2013's comment:
You lost me at " Buck and McCarver are doing a fine job of announcing , the umpires are doing a good job of officiating"
Buck and McCarver are a joke. They are clearly biased. They whined about a called strike on a Tigers hitter for ten minutes the other night. But when the Sox took the same call on the same pitch and it was called a strike, those clowns had nothing to say but praise Tigers pitching. I don't see any point in whining about it. I just hit the mute button now.
And the home plate umpires have been erratic on both teams. There is often little rhyme or reason to the balls and strikes calls. Strikes are balls and balls are strikes. Joe West is a moron. A lot of the calls Sanchez was getting in game 1 were ridiculous.
+1 ? Really? Take a look at the game thread. It has become a travesty. All you see are " Farrell is an idiot , does not know how to manage." " The announcers are a joke, they love the Tigers and hate the Red Sox." " The umpires are not only incompetent , but they are being paid off to fix the games." Meanwhile, there is some terrific baseball being played by two top teams. But we keep getting this childish nonsense. I'm tired of it. Let these guys turn off the sound if that suits them. I will leave the sound on and tune out the game threads.
