The umpires are too arrogant, too. They rule on emotions far too often.

Nothing to add? You helped prove my point since you're an umpire. Ironic.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

How can I add anything to a joke? Jokes are meant to be funny and if not based on falsehoods, they're gross exaggerations; hence my laughing at yours and the preceding poster's posts.

Having said that, guys like Angel Hernandez, Phil Cuzzi, CB Bucknor don't belong in the game. Then again, that's what MLB gets when they hire people based on race and not ability (yes, I am well aware of the inside story through my friends in professional baseball--it's disgusting).

Expanded replay wouldn't work n the Santana situation because the reactions of the fielders are affected by the umpire's call.

yea but this umpire was really foolish. calls go either way, but

what also was seen, is the ball actually went over the bad, in addition to hitting the white line.

for the umpire to miss both is really foolish, and he was right on it. with nothing in his vision.

what a moron.

2 no hitters

galarraga of Detroit got robbed of a true NO NO, and johan gets one when he shouldn't

FULL replay is needed big time.

the umpires are really out of control now.


I'm betting you would fail umpire school.

Not true at all. There are always situations where an umpire can change a call and position runners accordingly. That kind of judgement also comes in when balls are called dead for a variety of reasons.

If the ball hit the line and the batter was running with no one on base, they would probably just award the better second base.

Why is the Angels feed of today's Rangers-Angels game blacked out?

Not that I care because I would rather watch the Rangers feed, but it doesn't seem to make sense. Somebody asleep at the switch at DirecTV?

agreed- why is FSW blacked out? I'm in the San Diego market, but that shouldn't matter.

The ball did hit the chalk line, but going over the bag in the air has nothing to do with it being fair or foul. If it is in the air, it has to HIT in fair territory for it to be a fair ball. It can be 10 feet fair passing by 3rd base but if it hooks foul after that and the first place it hits the ground is in foul territory then it is a foul ball. Now a ground ball that bounces before 1st or 3rd is a different story.

Therein is the key. A bouncing ball that goes over the bag and lands foul is fair, but a ball in flight that goes over the bag and does not then touch fair territory is, in fact, foul.

Anyone who thinks the ump was incompetent on his call on that play needs their head examined.

I wouldn't call Adrian Johnson incompetent; rather, he simply erred. As humans, umpires will occasionally make mistakes. He did; now it's history.

No Extra Innings feed for the Athletics-Rockies game today. It's the free game on MLB.tv for those that want to watch it.

So we have the Phillies feed of the Phillies-Blue Jays game, but no SportsNet feed for the Blue Jays...why? It's not on SportsNet 1, it's just on the regular SportsNet.

Once again, a completely random and arbitrary usage of these feeds. DirecTV really needs to figure this stuff out.

Not every game or feed is included. Get over those expectations and it's a great package.

It gets cheaper I recall, but I don't think it gets to even half price, somewhere a bit north of that.

I've never seen this latest deal before, it was a great bargain, middle of June and they knocked off $70? Wow! Maybe the half season price will be more attractive this year.
