Who is at fault for the 1st inning last night in Houston?
Can we blame the catcher who has never seen a ball dance like that before, sometimes dropping up to 14 inches vertically and moving horizontally up to 12 inches as it came at him?
Maybe the Red Sox should have called up the same catcher that handles Steven Wright down at Pawtucket?
Do you blame it on manager John Farrell?
In a post game interview he stated, "It's the first time he's thrown the knuckleball in a dome, there's going to be extra movement to it." Sounds like this is something he should have taken into account before sending him out there?
Toronto Blue Jays knuckler, R.A. Dickey works in a home park that has a dome on it, but then again he gets to practice in there all the time.
Lets have a pseudo-scientific look at this and see who we can find to blame for this terrible start and what might be sabotage for our chances of seeing the flutterball back at Fenway any time...
