Mike Scioscia Should be Fired on the Spot

Calling for a squeeze in that situation was one of the worst managerial moves I have ever seen, with dire consequences. I am so thrilled to see small ball cost a team the game.

I don't know if I'd call for Scoscia getting the ziggy, but that was a silly call.

Here's an added reason I haven't heard elsewhere. It wouldn't have won them the game. The Red Sox scored in the bottom of the ninth.

So even if the play works, you are very unlikely to score another run and all things being equal the Red Sox still come up and tie the game.

I've always liked the saying that when you play for one run, that's usually all you get. Sometimes it's not enough.
