CB Bucknor's called third strike makes for the trifecta of pettiness.

I thought the same thing, counselor, because it would have continued until the strikeout.

Honest effort on every play.

Both teams fell short of that standard.

Meaningless game. Hahahahahaha!
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it

Fuck the Rangers and CB Bucknor, but the Fenway Fuckwits stand out as the biggest assholes in that story.

I didn't realize it was CB's call. That does indeed make it complete.

Yeah, I think I was with the stRangers up to the deliberate missed pop-up.  It is up to them if they want to leave their starter out there till his arm falls off, I don't know why Boston needed to get all pissy about it?  Fuck them both anyway.

Tyler Glasnow tonight 4.1 inning, 0 hits, 2 BB, 0 runs. Since his return he has yet to surrender a run in 10.1 innings over three outings.

Cole needs to go out and get me that lid today.
