In Baseball, Grammar Strikes Out

At least it does when it’s grammar by BoSox pitcher [tag]Curt Schilling[/tag]. Look at this comma splice-ridden monstrosity:

"Everyone has days and events in life they’d love to push the rewind button on, yesterday was one of those days."

Adding a simple and after the comma would’ve at least made the sentence grammatical, eliminating the common splice with a coordinating conjunction.  However, I think he meant erase, not rewind, button.  A rewind would mean a repeat, wouldn’t it?

 

Anyway, if you haven’t been following the real-life controversy, I thought I’d point out the grammatical aspects at least.
