During tonight’s Mets-Yankees game on ESPN, Peter Gammons chimed in from the little near-dugout media box thingy about the state of the Red Sox. Fine. He said the Red Sox’ only real concern right now is Josh Beckett’s injury, which Gammons went on to say is pretty mild and “not a blister”. Beckett should only miss one more start. Fine.
Then Gammons said the
blister avulsion was caused by a “defective baseball”.
Wha…what? I know your Red Sox homerism comes through sometimes, but at least try and be subtle, Mr. Gammons.
