When is an Idiom not an Idiom? 

The Toronto Blue Jays are losing badly to the Red Sox this Patriot's Day morning, probably because the pitching is strictly bush league.

I'm being completely literal here: The Toronto starter, Dave Bush, was lifted for a righty reliever, Brandon League, after giving up seven runs in 2+ innings. I guess sometimes bullpen rosters are destiny, and sometimes an idiom is not just an idiom.

Incidentally, if you're not from New England or Wisconsin, nor a SportsCenter addict, you may not know that Patriot's Day is the annual commemoration of the Battles of Lexington and Concord. It's observed in three states, and celebrated in Boston by a bizarre endurance contest and the only Major League Baseball game started before Noon.
