How is the best way to deal with an inconsistent, pitcher-friendly strike zone?
Apparently, it’s to keep the bat on one’s shoulder or maybe just swing halfway and hope for the best.
The Red Sox succeeded in running up Anibal Sanchez’s pitch count in Saturday’s 1-0 loss, but that was their only victory of the night. Even though they were no-hit until there was one out in the ninth, the outcome wasn’t finally decided until Xander Bogaerts’ popup to short.
