“If I’m going up there and striking out every at-bat, I’m going to get benched,” “But it’s not that way with (umpires). They can go out there and make bad calls all day, and they’re not going to be held accountable for it.
“It’s tough. It’s such a tough situation. Believe me, I’ve umpired before. It’s tough. It’s hard. But at this level, I don’t know what to say. You’ve got to bear down.” – Cody Ross after being called out without one pitch being in the zone. Sox had winning run on 1st.
