Joba Chamberlain’s ejection was the subject of much of the postgame talk instead of the work of Robinson Cano and Chien-Ming Wang.
Chamberlain said he was not throwing at Kevin Youkilis. “I was just letting it loose trying to get a swinging strike,” he said. “I have too much respect for the game and for that team to do something like that.
Said Terry Francona: “If that young man was trying to get our attention, he did a good job of it.”
Joe Torre was furious with home plate umpire Angel Hernandez. “The umpires have to be schooled somehow so they have a better sense of the game,” he said.
