Quote of the Day: Mike Scioscia

Sep 17, 2009, 9:50 AM EDT

“What was the count in the end, 3-4 to Green?”

Angels Manager Mike Scioscia, voicing his displeasure at what he felt were two blown calls during the penultimate at bat in last night’s Angels-Sox game.

I haven’t seen it yet, but reasonable people are disagreeing on whether or not the check swing really was a check swing.  Scioscia is dead right about the pitch that was called ball four, however.

(thanks to Jason for the heads up)

    Of course before the game WEEI had an interview with Rick Reed’s multiple stroke and his come back.
    And I got an ugly feeling when Scioscia got into his face.

    I’m a huge Sox fan, but the umps totally blew it. The check swing could have gone either way, but more often than not it’s called a strike. Green should not have taken ball 4 since it was so close to the strike zone (actually IN the strike zone) and to me, there’s nothing worse than striking out looking to end a game.
