Mazzilli and the O's have been killing the Sox all season. This afternoon's game was horrible. I wasn't against the firing of Mazzilli until he blew today's game. BJ Ryan has, by far, been the O's best pitcher and one of the most dominate relievers in the game. But conventional wisdom says with a tie game at home, it's "closer" time and that is exactly what Mazzilli did. He went to struggling Jorge Julio. Julio then gives up homers to Sheffield and Matsui. JUST TERRIBLE! This move was so wrong on many different levels. Mazzilli not only needs some smart pills but balls to go against the today's baseball grain too. Mazzilli will find his sack and take his smart pills by next week though just in time for the Sox series. I had to get this off my chest. Screw you, Mazzilli, you MFY!
