…and to think, I thought pulling his auto in my overpriced box of 2007 Goudey was a bad thing.
Two days ago on ESPN’s televised game of the Red Sox vs. Rays, Coco Crisp slid hard into (insert player here). For the rest of the night, the two ESPN announcers spent an hour crying (more like bitching) about Coco’s dirty move and implying in so many words that Coco was going to be “wearing a baseball” the next day. Of course, they were right about that one.
The thing is, I don’t think anyone expected to see the beat down that took place at Fenway Park tonight. In my eyes, Coco earned his stripes tonight. I hope when Bud starts handing out suspensions they also go after the pitcher who threw at him and maybe even his pitching coach/manager. If you saw the game on Wednesday, the manager pretty much guaranteed this would happen and on camera!
As far as Coco, he’s probably going to survive all this. After all, he’s a lifetime .328 hitter in 7 seasons in baseball. He is one bad…… Thanks for the entertainment!
