I never liked that Pap trade. Dude is all about himself.

Storen is all about himself. Little *****boy couldn't handle not being the closer even if it made the team better. Storen can literally go **** himself along with his dip**** of a father.

Matt Williams is the worst manager to ever manage this team. Worse than Manny Acta. He's horrendous. Needs to get that ******* syringe out of his steroid abusing *** and resign. **** him.

You could place the division on a tee for the Nats and Ian Desmond would whiff. Matt Williams would then say, "Well, that's baseball." **** this team. Can't wait til he gets axed.

I've been doing it all season, even for that month we were in 1st. Guess I could see what was coming.

I need Mattingly and McGwire to leave Joc alone. Stop tinkering with his swing and confidence and just let him be for the rest of the year. He's still getting on base better than league averages.

Dodgers need to get out of this inning.

Still only on Time Warner. I hope they strike a deal for Vin's last year.

After giving it a while to truly analyze the system, I feel like the instant replay in baseball does not work.

Far too often, the umpires in NY are hiding behind the idea of what the call on the field was. It seems to be happening more and more. I have seen countless times (especially recently), where after watching the replays of reviewed play, I see the complete opposite of what the call ends up being. But when that situation happens, it is always a decision that agreed with the original call on the field. Its almost as if they dont want the umpires on the field to be shown up.

That call in the Red Sox game today was a joke. It was blatantly obvious that the runner never came off the base at third. But we wouldnt want to show up an umpire now would we?

The umpires in NY should have to make a call 100% based on what they see on film. It shouldnt matter what the ump on the field called. The decision should be made with what they see on the replays.

They gotta make it quicker.

Betts didn't come off the bag, even the YES commentators said so.

also Swihart's "swing" to end the game was a joke. the home plate umpire shouldn't make that call...

Thats another thing. In football, coaches have a split second to decide if they are gonna challenge. In baseball, it is so ridiculous for me to see a manager call timeout, take five steps onto the field and then turn back to the dugout to wait to get the signal that their coach in the booth thinks they should challenge.

Its silly. Make a decision.

Didn't see the Sox replay, but Conforto came off the bag for a second last night and got called out on the review. Tag was applied the whole time.

I don't mind the manager's pacing, more so the decision makers in NY. Managers have to wait from upstairs to decide to challenge.

# of cycles in 2015: four
# of triple plays in 2015: three four

Yeah they happen at a slightly higher rate. But they are still pretty special man.

Updated.

Yet another triple play tonight. And I still disagree with your opinion.

I have a mlb tv account and I use a VPN to bypass the blackout so that I can watch LA teams. The only catch is that I can only do it on my desktop/laptop laugh.gif

Where I'm pretty much sold on making the playoffs. Astros need to get it in gear for the division. We need that.
