I have been listening to baseball games on the radio for, roughly, 50 years. I never heard what I heard in the 4th inning of VP Glenn Geffner's call on Sunday, August 26.
Glenn: Julian Tavarez stands on the mound. He has a baseball in his hand. He stands, ready to deliver.
Holy Jesus Palomino: The pitcher has a BASEBALL IN HIS HAND? Good thing it wasn't a pomegranate. He would look silly.
It's rubbing off on Poor Old Joe, too. In the fifth, Dustin Pedroia had an epic at-bat. At the end of the at bat, he got a 2-run single. Red Sox lead 3-1. Joe says: "Polanco had a great at bat"
