Fenway dugout monitors wrecked by Rick Porcello replaced

Rick Porcello suffered a meltdown in the wake of a rough outing earlier this week, and the Boston Red Sox were quick to rectify the ensuing dugout damage caused by the pitcher.

Porcello was rocked to the tune of six runs allowed on nine hits and a walk before exiting after 5 2/3 innings of work in Wednesday’s 8-5 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays at Fenway Park. With the Red Sox down 6-2 after exiting the game, Porcello took out his frustration over his rough outing on two television monitors in the dugout.

Upon learning that cameras caught his TV-trashing tirade, Porcello apologized for his antics, citing “frustration” and admitting his histrionics were “not a behavior that I feel like is representative to me and my personality.”

Now, we have visual evidence that the Fenway staff have rectified the situation by replacing the two monitors that bared the brunt of Porcello’s ire.

All’s well that ends well.
