    I think Matheny is clueless. Runners on corners now, and he's finally changing pitchers.

    Horrible call on the Campana steal, and Matheny got tossed.

    Umpires 3, Cardinals 2

    Absolutely atrocious umpiring tonight.

    Cards blow another one. This one on a hot shot to 2B Greene, who does his bull fighter impression.

    Reds now in second place. 2.5 games out of first.

    Maybe Umpires 1, Cards 2, Cubs 2.

    But did the umpires give up the HR in the 9th to tie the game?

    The umpires didn't give up the opposite field blast to LaHair to force extras.

    Yes, but they called a player safe at home when he didn't touch the plate and was gunned down in right field by Carlos Beltran earlier in the game. That botched call at second was the least of the blown calls tonight.

    Doesn't matter. If you have a 2-1 lead and have a chance to finish the game off, you can't blame umpires when you don't get it done.

    The Cardinals just had to get three more outs in the 9th inning and they win the game regardless of those calls. That's their fault, not the men in blue.

    In your scenario, it would be Umpires 2, Cards 2, Cubs 1 That play earlier in the game was one of the worst calls I have seen in years. Only that play last year between the Braves and Pirates was worse.

    Lots of blown calls tonight. It's the human condition. And that's baseball. Umpires are the Great Satan. As it should be.

    I'm sorry, it is their fault if they are giving runs to the other team. You would feel the same way if it happened to the Reds.

    You're right of course. It's tough to lose that way, but it happens a lot it seems. I'd still rather have the human element over the robo umpiring. It's part of the game.
