ESPN is calling Omir Santos‘s two-run game-winning homer off Jonathan Papelbon “controversial.” Why? The replay looks pretty definitive to me. Oh, but this is ESPN, so anything even remotely debatable is immediately deemed a major controversy. That’s what happens when you have too damn many hours of air-time to fill – you make mountains out of molehills. And of course you have to justify keeping people like Steve Phillips around. I imagine they don’t leave him on the payroll for his personality.
