I still don't know why the umps didn't act on lester during the game.
what more could the league see that the umps did not.

I do think its funny that the good ol boy mayor Casey got some days. I wonder if he will be patting the Rays on the ass at first from now on.

As I write this I see that it is tomorrow for Allan and most of you and I wonder, how is the weather tomorrow?

They argued that same thin on the postgame last night , about lester's intent.....Didn't MLB show they would do this , when they suspended Farnsworth for missing Manny....

So, let me get this straight - charging the mound and thowing a punch is bad.

Throwing punches at a player while he is pinned by another player is also bad, just not as bad as charging the mound.

Watson - shows his anti Red Sox bias again.
