Jim Joyce a major league baseball umpire made the worse call of his carreer last night, and he will be the first to admit it. Armando Galarraga (Detroit Tigers) had a perfect game right up to the last pitch, when Joyce called Clevelands Jason Donald safe at first. After the game Joyce watched the replay over and over and admitted he was wrong. What happens now? Does Galarraga get his perfect game?

This marks David’s fourth career Player of the Month Award,Ortiz hit .363 with four doubles, 10 home runs, 16 runs and 27 RBI’s.
Way to go Papa!
Ken Griffey Jr. retired last night, I find it sad when a player like Griffey ends his carreer. It makes me feel very old. When my daughters Godson was a little boy he loved Ken Griffey Jr. I didn’t understand at the time how you could love someone that much that didn’t play for the Red Sox. Well Patrick is now in his 20’s, and I get it. There are not enough players out there like him. Sorry you never played for the Sox!
Sox played a great game last night! One more tonight then on the road again.
Tim just can’t catch a break. He pitched a really good game and just couldn’t get the support he needed. Of course the Home Plate Umpire didn’t help at all.
Not one of Big Papi’s most flattering pictures, but I understand his fustration!
Dale Scott took the sweep away from them.
A replay clearly showed was the pitch was well outside the strike zone.
Day off today to regroup. Than off to Detroit
I really don’t care what the local papers say, I really don’t care what the so called fans say, I believe him!
I would love to know where these leaks are coming from? Confidential, hummm…doesn’t that mean it is not to be spoken about, leaked to or written! and if you do slip and tell oh say a reporter, isn’t that a criminal offense? If it isn’t it should be. And why hasn’t this person that continues to leak this stuff get caught? I’m sure they know who it is.
It is time to put all this crap behind us and get back to playing baseball like we all know the Red Sox can. There is still plenty of time left, but let’s not let it get ahead of us.
We have all read the papers and listened to Big Papi, now back to the game of baseball.
New York will be in Boston in a couple of weeks. I hope Wakefield is back by then, but even if he isn’t, it will be our turn.
Detroit tonight at Fenway, the weather is going to be hot and humid, just the way we like it!
