If you’re Big Papi here, your head HAS to explode, right? One run game, versus the arch-rival Yankees no less, and you’re sat down on a full count with the bases loaded in the ninth with one of the WORST strikeout calls in recent memory.

Can’t blame David Ortiz one bit for going ballistic here, even though it’s only May and not October. Every game counts, and at this rate, his contention with home plate ump Ron Kulpa is all about the principle. Look at this pitch location…
Can’t sit a slugger down like that in a one run game, ever.
