Your club ain’t going to win many ballgames when your starter gives up five over five; plus, your Manager pitches your GM’s two biggest mistakes. As I said before, the O’s have been the difference in the A.L. East yet again.
On a positive and then funny note…
It didn't take long for Burks to do something positive. He received a rousing standing ovation…With a runner on first, Burks lined a single to center before he was lifted for a runner…and received another loud ovation. "It was emotional, I was so nervous," Burks said. "The reaction by the crowd was awesome. I really appreciated that."
A seventeen year MLB veteran “was so nervous.” It is a great game and times sure have changed on Yawkey Way. It is not the Yawkey way any longer.
Johnny Pesky on not being able to sit in the dugout…
"I'm hurt by it," Pesky said. "If that's the end, that's the end. I'm not going to jump in the Charles River over it because I can't swim, but I didn't think this could happen. The game has changed, I guess. I understand that."
Has Johnny been smokin’ with Yogi or is he just trying to get a piece of Yogi’s endorsement action?
