What a welcome sight this is. Carl Crawford will begin a rehab assignment with the Pawtucket Red Sox this weekend against the Durham Bulls.
For the first time this year the Red Sox are all by themselves in first place at the end of the day.
That, my friends, is a beautiful thing. Gonzo with a .665 WPA, and Youk with a .394. Between the two of them, they won the game twice over, with Gonzo contributing over a win by WPA.
If you add up all of Joe West's strikes called for Boston outside vs. balls called inside the zone, you'll probably find we just about broke even. But mathematical "fairness" is far from what any batter is looking for in an umpire. Congratulations, Joe West, yesterday you turned plate discipline into a game of roulette. Perhaps he should head to that umpire camp MLB.tv was so fervently advertising as the Sox finished up a series in which the professionals made a joke of things.
