White Sux Whine About Frankie

Remember back when the L.A. Times gave sports-hack Mike Downey way too much space in their regular pages to sort of pontificate about stuff? God, those were the days....

Anyhoo, Downey's got a piece today whining about K-Rod's post-game antics. Excerpt:

Well, if the Sox had to lose one, at least they lost to a very good pitcher.

"No, it was devastating," center fielder Brian Anderson said in the Sox's clubhouse later.

Having to watch K-Rod's mound act, he meant.

"Why do they let him get away with that stuff? Somebody should have a talk with that guy," Anderson said.

"I just wish J.D. (Dye) had hit it out, stuck out his arms and stood there going, 'Grrrr!'" [...]

Rodriguez is an Angel, but no one expects him to wear a halo. It is simply that a pitcher can go overboard with this kind of thing. Losing teams do not like to be shown up.

The ninth inning of Friday's game was a good battle of wills and skills, but it wasn't exactly for the pennant.

 Devastating?
