Batman Robs Sox David Ortossed

Batman Robs Red Sox


David Ortossed: Slugger will be suspended over selfish act.

Tizzle acts like chump by tossing bats at umps.
No excuse. That selfish stunt hurts the team, and the city of Boston. Home plate ump Matt Hollowell was horrible, but you just can't argue balls and strikes. One tossed bat nearly hit umpire Bill Hohn in the leg.
How many critical games will David miss? 3? 5? 10?!?

"It just ran out of hand for a second. Things happen. I made a mistake... That's not my personality. I don't mean to hit anybody, I just wanted to throw my bats out there, like, `Here, you hit for me.' I'm not a kind of guy who's trying to cause trouble, but we're not perfect. I did something wrong, and I apologize to the umpires and the fans. It's over." -- Red Sox favorite son David Ortiz (unfortunately for the Boston Red Sox, it's not over as the fans await the suspension decision.)

Pedro, Night Kap Get Sox Back on Track
Manny's hammy hurting again. All-Star out of left field indefinitely. Ouch.

Nomar, Gabe Ruth homer. Pete brings the heat.

Dirt Doggin': Trot puts head down, runs past Sveum stop sign to score key run.

More Kap. Less KFK.
