Blame of the Game: Scot Shields
If Scot had had the liberal strike zone afforded C.J. Wilson, he would have been out of the 8th inning on the 4th batter.
As bad as Shields was - and it is about ten times more threatening to the team's fortunes than the lights of Ervin Santana and Bartolo Colon combined - he went thru a meltdown after getting squeezed. Enter CJ Wilson who was held to a strike zone approximately twice the size of what Shields had to work with.
I am not an umping whiner, look back over everything I have ever written, it takes a 2005 Doug Eddings too get a peep out of me. The Rangers got this one giftwrapped twice - once by Shields, once by Blue.
