I thought it was dead obvious that Manny's knee dug into the turf while trying to slide...it durn near flipped him over. I was really surprised that he wasn't hurt, what with all the momentum from that big old body of his. He got a raw deal from Buck/McCarver for not pointing that out. Yeah, it was an error, but I bet a hundred bucks that he hit a seam in some new sod. That's got to be the only green grass in Mass. right now.
Marquis cracked me up, but I did think he beat the throw by about a picosecond. Regardless, it really makes you appreciate the umps and the job they do. Now, don't tell anyone I said that, OK?
