Although it seems like "no big deal," isn't it nice to see the on-deck guy telling the oncoming baserunner whether to slide or not?! (That is his job, by the way.)
Kotsay was imploring Swisher to slide the moment Swisher headed for home. Nice job.
Oh, if only Billy Mac might have reminded Byrnes he needed to touch home for the run to count (vs. Boston,) ........ and (this kinda ruins my rant,)who was in the on-deck circle, by the way, during the most famous non-slide in our history??!! I honestly don't remember .... I think I passed out.
