Here’s the deal. Two out, runners on 1st and 2nd. A pop up is hit to 3rd. A-Rod (who was on 1st) rounds second and on his way to third yells “mine” to Clark. Howie thinks its SS McDonald, backs off and lets it drop.
Going to break, the useless play by play man throws this out there:
Did he say something when going by Howie Clark? It sure appears so!
Frankly, I’m getting a little sick and tired of all the whining of late in Toronto. The announcers are claiming bush league, Gibson’s is jawing at A-Rod, most likely telling him he’s gonna get Lillyed. The Jays bench is staring A-Rod down, the fans bitch and moan of their way to their cars. Give me a break, this is baseball. A non-legitimate run according to the booth. Did A-Rod break a rule by calling out a word?
I simply cannot equate a player yelling “mine!” vs a dirty slide, beaning somebody, etc. I’m sure this will be all the rage throughtout the Canadian TV markets and the holy grail of homer crap, the Fan 590 radio. I can’t wait for the typical Gibbons bitching, JP claiming this is why they won’t win the division, and the “witty” jokes such as A-Rod yelling mine at a strip club.
