The new Buckner is Bucknor

The game has been over for an hour now and as of yet, CB Bucknor has yet to blow another call. One wise guy commented earlier tonight on the blog that CB stood for “Clinically Blind.”

Neither of those called cost the Red Sox the game given how well John Lackey pitched. But the first caused Jon Lester to throw six extra pitches in the fourth inning and the second led to him having to get an extra out in the sixth.

You would like to think the umpires would be better than that in the postseason.
