This is it on the bugs, but why is it that so many of us had the same opinion? As bad as Pinella is, he would have protected his players better.
And there is a Steinbrenner sighting:(h/t mickey07)
...ripping into umpire Bruce Froemming, the veteran crew chief from Friday night's Game 2 who declined to stop play despite an infestation of Lake Erie gnats.
"The umpire was full of [expletive]," Steinbrenner said of the retiring Froemming. "He won't umpire our games anymore."
In the wake of that Game 2 defeat, Steinbrenner said the Yankees had complained to baseball commissioner Bud Selig about the decision to play on. "[Selig] just said, 'That's in the umpires' hands,' " Steinbrenner said. "But Jesus Christ, it was terrible. It messed up the whole team, [Derek] Jeter, all of them."
We can only hope the Rocket comes out throwing hard and goes seven with the lead.
