Where’s the ill temper?
Ortiz powers Sox to bad-tempered win
I re-read this article three times looking for any comment about somebody being bad-tempered.
There was no mention or even a hint about bad tempers. Who provided the title to this well-written account of the game?
I thought the Boston Globe was prejudiced in their writing, but your editors apparently don’t even read the articles. What a disappointment.
The headline was a reference to this sentence: Both benches were warned by home plate umpire Wally Bell after Beltre was struck by a 97 mph pitch from Fernando Rodney in the next at-bat after the second Ortiz homer.
That sentence was dropped from the version of the story you saw, but unfortunately the headline wasn’t changed accordingly: GBU Editor
