Boston Red Sox Pitcher Drew Pomeranz Yells At Manager John After He Was Pulled Early In Saturday Afternoons Game With Oakland
The trade from hell continues to come back and bite the Boston Red Sox.
Last season, ahead of the MLB trade deadline Dave Dombrowski traded top pitching prospect Anderson Espinoza for starting pitcher Drew Pomeranz. This trade since that time has looked worse and worse with Pomeraz failing to find his place in Boston.
Pomeranz has had immense struggles this season and his grown increasingly frustrated over the last several weeks and all of this frustration came to a head on Saturday afternoon when he yelled at Boston Red Sox Manager John Farrell.
Pomeranz had failed to go deep for the countless time this season and only lasted four innings against Oakland. The Red Sox had gained a 3-2 lead heading into the bottom of the fifth inning, and Farrell decided to end Pomeranz’s day due to the fact that he had already thrown 97 pitches.
The decision led to what appeared to be Pomeranz confronting Farrell with his displeasure.

Pomeranz has yet to get past six innings this season, having gone four, three and four innings, respectively, in his last three outings. Since joining the Red Sox, he has gotten an out in the seventh inning just twice in 21 starts. This trade could continue to look worse and worse if Anderson Espinoza turns out to be a good pitcher.
