BOSTON (NWN) – Longtime Astros manager Dusty Baker is happy to stay out of the last fight as players point out each other on the pitch, saying “It’s too late for me to change the world on Tuesday.”
The latest flare-up of baseball’s unwritten rules came in the third game of the AL championship series on Monday night, when Red Sox reliever Eduardo Rodriguez pointed to his wrist after Carlos Correa left Houston. This was in response to Correa himself using this gesture after the home run in Game 1. to signal that it’s time for it to shine.
Boston manager Alex Cora chastised his pitcher, “We’re not doing this.” Rodriguez said he would apologize to Correa if he saw him. But Correa said he “likes every last one.”
“This is the way baseball has to move forward,” Correa said. “You have to let the players have fun.”
This was not the case when the 72-year-old Baker played between 1968 and 1986 – almost all of it was in Holland, where the make-up pitcher was fodder for a 100 mph lesson the next time he was in the test box. …
“In my days, you probably grew daisies somewhere, do you know what I mean?” he said before game 4. “It’s a new world, a new day.
“I have a 22-year-old son. I try to draw attention to him, “behave as if you were there before.” But nobody seems to matter. So what’s my opinion? ” he said. “It’s too late for me to change the world.”
