One Down, Ten to Go

I had a ton of fun watching the Red Sox win 4-0 over the Angel’s tonight. I watched at Flat Top Johnny’s in Cambridge, where I watched much of 2004.

I could write pages about Beckett – he was just great, going after batters, first-pitch strikes, etc. I wouldn’t have brought him out in the 9th, I think he was tiring, but all’s well that ends well.

The only complaint I have is about TBS. They ran their ads long and missed the first third of the top of third. I was pissed. Then they missed the first third of the bottom of the inning! As a minimum, you have to show the plays of the game, and TBS failed at that. Sitting in the bar, I couldn’t hear the announcers, and I’m sure that’s a good thing. They missed more pitches in the eigth, and appeared to be totally unaware of Ramirez being lifted for Ellsbury in left. Can’t we have Remy and Orsillo, please?

I’ll be watching Friday from inside Fenway. Sunday will be from a book in Las Vegas. Here’s hoping that’s the end of it.

The announcers were awful. But missing game action for commercials really is unforgiveable. I was in disbelief when they went to commercial for a VISIT TO THE MOUND, not even a pitching change. Ridiculous. Amatuer hour. Almost makes me look forward to Buck and McCarver.
