I share your hatred of whoever is behind the plate (doesn't matter who, they all suck, but it's Chad Fairchild) but looking only at Gameday, I see ball 4 to Edwin as the only questionable call. And the called strike on LeMahieu to begin the inning could maybe have been called the other way. ... NESN on-screen zone is a little smaller than the Brooks pitchf/x zone, so what looks like a ball on NESN might really be an actual strike ... Because NESN's gotta NESN.This ump can eat my ass
