I won't disagree but on the most controversial call of the day, the one that that drew the most heat from a Cub, the strike three call on Lee, it was clearly a strike, a good inche above the knee.
The ump was giving the low strike, big time. But I think more umps should be doing that.
Props to Lohse. We need someone to step up with the team struggling to get Arroyo a win. Nicely done Kyle.
