Red Sox Hitters Beneficiaries of Generous Scorers?
We won the home opener, while recording 13 hits. But several of those should have been scored as reached on error instead. This isn't a criticism of Boston's official scorer, as he is only following the practice of all other MLB scorers. But if a routine fly ball falls between two fielders, in my opinion (and that of the pitcher on the mound, no doubt) an error should be charged. I talk more about it over at my Scoring Rules blog along with some accompanying videos. Take a look.
