What are these guys looking for with two strikes down 2 in the 9th? Swing the damn bat.

AJ is nuts about the curve. Xander almost never cheats to get to the fastball.

I love bashing mlb umps as much as anyone but this game is on the bats

Sox have been unproductive against a lot of shitbag pitchers

So what is Raffy supposed to do? He also called a ball five inches off the plate a strike in that AB.
I know it's frustrating, but five inches off the plate would be in the middle of the batters box

Agreed but Robertson however is not a shitbag pitcher.

This ump is not making it easy however. His strike zone has been a mess this inning.
