Die, Danny Vinik, Die

I loathe you, Danny Vinik.  You are the anti-Steve Bartman, the next Jeffrey Maier. Danny Vinik ended the game for the Angels, making the play of the night for the Red Sox — outside of the Manny Ramirez walk off that’s headed to Canada — snagging that foul pop up from Jeff Mathis.

At the time, the Angels were up 3-2 in the game, with one out and men on the corners. If Mathis catches the foul ball, there’s two out, and then the Mike Lowell fly out to center ends the inning. Instead, Man Ram wound up walking, bringing up Lowell with only one out. That was it, game tied at 3, and the Angels couldn’t score any more runs. Matter of fact, they’ve only scored in one inning this entire series. That was their only chance — to be up 3-2 and hold it the entire game. Danny Vinik, you stink. More pics of the great grab after the jump.
