This guy is a good portion of the reason the RS lose games that they could have and should have won, especially games at home... He goes too long with pitchers, refuses to realign the batting order, i.e move Pedroia out of the 3rd slot and doesn't seem to believe in bunting and moving runners.
Did he win 73 games this year? Why bother to change the line up. Yes Dempster should have been taken out a bit earlier, but that Garnder fly ball was catchable if the coaching staffs didnt tell the OF to shift more to the left. Ellsbury was not in the center field spot, and he was playing more on the left field wall which that was why Garnder got an easy long fly ball triple. Had it was caught, it will be 2 outs and Boston will be up by one run instead down by one run!!
I think it would have been caught if SV was healthy
It almost looked like he pulled up instead of going for it like he would usually do. Too many hits to the wall this year. Looked like he didnt want to do that again because thats what it would have took to catch that ball.
i wonder though....i watched it 4 times on my DVR and the angle he was running at he could have simply kept going, caught it, and continued on into the "triangle". i dont even think he would have hit the wall if he caught it. but it was obvious he pulled up on that ball. big difference if he catches it. but there are always "if's" in games....
sigh....off to the west coast. hopefully SF will be kind to us the next 3 days.....
