The Hot Seat? Really?

In more important news, I wanted to point out Dan Shaughnessy's hysterical column in the Tuesday Boston Globe that concludes by saying Terry Fracona "is suddenly sitting on the hot seat" because he didn't pinch hit John Olerud for Alex Cora in the ninth inning Sunday night.

Really, I'm not kidding. That was a killer moment (I recall thinking to myself, I hope he just strikes out, rather than make a double play; then he made a double play), sure enough, but I don't think it wipes away the World Series championship just yet. I would've preferred a column on how ESPN slipped Francona some cash to let Cora hit so that the ESPYs wouldn't be delayed.
