Hopefully he's starting to break out of his slump. This kid is also streaky as hell and capable of carrying a team when he's on a tear.

Sure-Oz

I'm not apologizing for him. He should be hitting .300+ with about 15 Hr's by now. He's definitely underachieving at the moment.
I think he'll come around the 2nd half.

I agree. And between them all, Fred, Denny, save Splitty and White I am sick of hearing them talk abotu everything but the damn game.

You can listen on the radio forever and not know what the score, count, etc is.

I really want Gordon to succeed, but after every disappointing AB I can't help but think of this:

22 HR 62 RBI .284 AVG .324 OBP .548 SLG

And then I vomit a little bit in my mouth.

I think I understand how Charger fans felt, pre-Rivers, when they watched Manning play.

He doesn't have power. He makes contact a lot but he doesn't drive the ball like he needs too to be on the roster. Can't play D, can't run the bases, can't hit for power......why are you on the team?

With the caveat that when he was playing he was getting some pretty nice bounces off that turf that helped his average. He is a good example though. I don't see Butler raking like Martinez though. His first full three seasons he hit over .300.

I think the bottom line for this game is Bannister is just not that great. He lacks a true out pitch as evident by the fact he gets up 0-2 in a lot of counts and ****s around instead of trying to drop the hammer. Until he can develop some kind of out pitch he is going to be a 4.5+ ERA guy or worse.

Right now I have the Umps on my mind. I have not seen such horrid umpiring in back-bacl games in key situations in my life. And the calls were not even close. I hope Dayton Moore is on the phone to the league about this shit cause this is two nights in a row.

Enough of the excuses, enough of the playing for next year. You get a 5 run lead you ****ing pile on..you dont walk people. Butler should be on the bench or gone, Olivo should be the DH if that is the case and Gordon needs to get it the **** together with the K's.

I agree with this. A finesse guy without the ability to get the strikeout on a consistent basis is a recipe for disaster. People want to compare a Bannister-type pitcher to Greg Maddux, but what gets lost is the fact that Maddux got his share of Ks and his strikeout-to-walk ratio was unbelievable.

I saw it. He definitely winked.

My initial reaction was that it wasn't a big deal. It's possible that the umpire has a personal relationship with coaches on the Sox staff, and this doesn't necessarily mean that anything unethical was going on. Back in the day, I used to umpire and there were coaches I was friends with; it didn't change how I called a game.

Still, I'll admit that it sure doesn't look good when an official, after some contested calls, leaves the field and winks toward someone on the other team.

There are two things that drive me absolutely nuts. The first thing that drives me nuts is when people complain incessantly about umpiring and officiating. I get it. These guys makes mistakes. Their strike zones vary. They blow pass interference calls all the time and call phantom holdings against your team twice every game. They screw up the block-charge call seven out of ten times, and in hockey they often seem to be making it up as they go along. I get it. And the fact that we now get so many more television angles doesn’t leave much mystery — these guys blow calls all the time.

So, OK. The umpire blows a call against your club, and you beef for a few minutes. Fine. That’s part of being a fan. That’s part of the story of the game. And I’m not suggesting that umpires should somehow be above criticism — I think it’s ridiculous that leagues FINE managers or players for saying that an umpire blew a call. What kind of totalitarian attitude is that? Umpires DO blow calls, and managers, coaches, players SHOULD get ticked off when it happens. In my mind they should be allowed that night to say whatever the heck they want about a bad call.

But only that night. Look, after a while … hey, enough already. When you constantly complain about umpires, you begin to sound petty and delusional. What happens is you first complain about a bad call, but then you start to see ghosts and shadows and Jorge Orta’s around every corner, and you start whining about VERY close calls, ones that could go either way, ones the umpire might have gotten right, and then you cross over and complain about correct calls. And that’s when you start to sound like a big ol’ loser. That’s why it drives me nuts.

I say this for a reason: I’ve noticed lately that my very good buddy Ryan Lefebvre, who I believe is an excellent announcer and a wonderful guy, has been moaning way too much about umpiring lately; he’s definitely creeping into that dangerous territory where you start ripping umpires for making good calls. Wednesday’s game ended when Mike Aviles was called out on a check swing, and Ryan who had been ripping the umpires for four or five innings gave a big old, frustrated “Well, why not?” The replay showed that Aviles had DEFINITELY swung, it wasn’t close, and it was correctly called out, but it was too late to say, “OK, hey, I apologize, I went overboard, the umpire was right.” Anyway, the next time I see him I will advise him as a friend to just stop the whole umpire thing. It sounds amateurish to me.

F**KIN' HILLMAN WHY DOESN'T HE F**KIN' KICK THEIR ASSES

Even on that interference call if German would have been more aggresive he would have caused a collision or made the play. Instead he let pussified it.

Hold on, we played through the mistakes of the sac flys and such. When umps are blatantly blowing calls, nto calling interference and saying batters didn't swing when they did you can't win no matter what you do. It was 9 vs. 13 the other night and to a lesser extent last night.

i agree somewhat with what posnanski is saying, but the game on tuesday night was one of the worst-officiated games i have ever seen. even as a fan, i try not to complain to much about officiating, but that game was absolutely hidious. i think ryan lefebvre had every right to make his feelings be known during the broadcast.

I don't bitch at umps especially the strike zone and especially on TV. The camera is off center and it is where the ball crosses the plate. I saw some balls yesterday that looked outside but if you are throwing from the left side of the rubber to the right with a slide piece.

Yes. The FCC issued an acknowledgement in '95 that improper camera positioning can lead to misrepresentations in most major American sports. This problem has been corrected in Europe, but Bush vetoed attempts to correct this issue in the U.S.
