Max Scherzer’s slider is pretty dang good, but he doesn’t deserve too much credit for this swing and miss from Red Sox catcher Sandy Leon. Whether Leon took his eye off the ball or suddenly believed the strike zone was in his pants, you can’t embarrass yourself at the plate much more than this.

And then Rick Porcello hit a three-run double on the following at-bat, so I guess everything (in all sports) is just weird as hell tonight.
