UPDATE: Lackey hates it!
According to Red Sox beat writer Maureen Mullen, the team will institute a new 'twist' at jetBlue Park today. The public address announcer will call out whether each pitch was a ball or a strike and the count. Can you say "incredibly dumb"? Apparently, someone in the Red Sox organization has way too much time on their hands. What's next? Maybe they can interject the latest Liverpool soccer score during a mound visit. Or perhaps the PA guy can read the latest drop in circulation figures for the Red Sox House Organ (AKA The Boston Globe). The possibilities are endless!
