"I never argue with people who say baseball is boring, because baseball is boring. And then, suddenly, it isn't. And that's what makes it great." - Joe Posnanski
Squuezed again. WTH!
Another terrible, lazy arrogant ump...what else is new?
Man, lower 1/3 of the zone is apparently only a strike every other time.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
That's just BS umpiring there. Terrible.
"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN
jobbed again by the ump
The older I get - the better I was
and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
It didn't miss. That's where. But the umps do NOT like that walking off the mound before the call is made. Just like the batters walking towards first and flipping the bat before the walk is called. Right or wrong, the umps don't like being shown up.
What an awful call, not calling a strike a strike.
Not gonna lie...that was strike three to Martin. Home plate ump has not been good tonight.
It's even more a testament to Leake that he walked only one batter tonight given how tight this zone has been. Wow.

Cingrani is mad...awesome
