Tom Caron threw us for a loop this morning with a rebuke to one of the most beloved athletes in Boston Sports History! None other that David Ortiz. What is TC's beef with Big Papi?

I'm not crazy about those comments because without the so-called 'snitch' none of this would have ever come out to the public.

 

I get what he's saying about keeping this in house, but I'm telling ya, baseball no longer wants this swept under the rug, I think what he (Fiers) did was courageous because they have to clean this up.- Tom Caron on David Ortiz' "Snitch" Comments

It has been argued that the most influential element in the cause of 4 hour baseball games is due to the stealing of pitch signs.

Pitchers and catchers spend MINUTES reversing and resetting signals for off speed pitches because if a great hitter (like Ortiz) KNOWS what pitch is coming? That ball will end up in bouncing off the John Hancock Building.

I actually agree with TC because a baseball game with a brisk pace (2 and a half hours or less) is vastly superior to the 5 hour snooze fests that have become the norm.
