Sox Machine Live!: So much for letting the kids play

The Rundown:

Josh and Jim recap Wednesday’s activities that saw a fun moment turn into a scuffle and inexcusable ejection for Tim Anderson. Why it’s terrible for the league having pitchers retaliate with a minor penalty, and why umpires should be required to explain their actions.  

Also, explore how the roster could be impacted if Lucas Giolito and Yoan Moncada need to spend time on the injured list and preview the upcoming series against the Detroit Tigers.

The only excuse I can see the umpires using is that Tim hold the bat for a few seconds and they can say it looked like he was gonna attack the pitcher.
It’s BS but I’m sure they would say that.
Still, fun series for the Sox 🙂

I used to be all for the unwritten rules. Not so much these days. I’m glad someone finally called out Nolan Ryan and Bob Gibson for being sociopaths.

Manuelos replacing Giolito…hmmm….Banuelos has an unhealthy 6.1 walk rate per 9 innings
