Around the Bellhorn
On your Mark, get set, Mueller and Roberts go home
Sox win in walk off, 3-2
MLB.con: "Sox lose as Bellhorn strikes out"
Ian Browne checks in with "Dewey beats Truman" gaffe.
"Hi, I am the author of the bogus story that was up on MLB.com for a few moments
last night. here is what happened. i have a deadline of filing the story at
the last pitch. in the type of game that last night was, my only choice is
having one story ready to go if they win and one if they lose.
unfortunately, in my rush to get down the locker room after bellhorn's hit,
i sent the WRONG microsoft word attachment file to my editor. for some
reason, my editor deployed the story as was, without making the changes,
even though this person was indeed aware of the final score and knew that
the Red Sox had won. it was an operator error on my part, and a terrible
editing error on the other side. basically my mistake was flicking the wrong
switch, and after all, isn't that why i have editors? anyway, if you could
please run my explanation in any way possible, i would appreciate that. i
don't want people to think i was making up the wrong score and didn't know
that the Red Sox actually won the game. it's tough being compared to Dewey
defeats Truman :)
thanks a bunch."
