Different Attitudes In A One Sided Game

August 6, 2016

What a difference in attitude toward a long, one sided game displayed by complaining John “Superstar” Sterling and Suzyn Waldman whose team was winning and that of Indians’ announcer Tom Hamilton, the team on the short end of the (13-7) score.

Sterling and Waldman were moaning the game would not end, citing the number of pitches thrown by Indians’ middle relief pitchers.

Sure there is an early game the next day/today, but it is 1 p.m. not 5 a.m. and as I drove home in traffic, I thought Sterling and especially Waldman, who really paid few “dues,” to get a job many can only dream about,  should ponder those who have to dig ditches and such for a living.

Meanwhile Hamilton, again his team was losing and by the way whose lead is again down to two games in the A.L. Central, extolled the professionalism of home plate umpire Dale Scott, who let the game play out, not calling close pitches that were balls, strikes, to get everyone home earlier.
