Fox Misses Ramirez HR

When Fox came back from commercial for the bottom of the fourth inning of the ALCS game 5 this afternoon, Manny Ramirez was circling the bases. He had homered on the first pitch of the inning while Fox was still showing a promo for its local newscast here in Boston. If you thought Fox was catching hell so far over its crappy coverage, wait until the postgame uproar over this one.

(I haven't participated in the Fox-bashing in this space mostly because it's too easy--the brother of a Yankee player is a game analyst, for instance. I listen to the radio and watch the TV with the sound down, so at least I heard Manny's homer live).
