skeet on mischa

i wouldn't have given you it if i didn't agree

Oct 12, 2005

even though, the past two days have been some of the worst days of my life.

i have to come back and say one simple word.


if you saw the angels/sox game, you know exactly what i mean.

seriously, a bunch of bullshit.

it's like what robin brown said, from now, it's a tainted title.

and quite frankly, i could care less about a video ipod. they don't have any episodes of "arrested development" for sale. fork that. if i'm gonna watch tv on my videopod, i want to watch my favorite show or at least some ali g episodes.

I haven't seen a call that bad since the Jeffrey Maier game.

This call is in a league of its own. Really. All these other calls over the years that people are talking about: disputed calls -- maybe the guy was safe, maybe not...maybe it's a home run, maybe not...should we reverse the call, or not reverse the call? Judgment calls, bad eyesight, whatever.

This one is harder to stomach. Strike three, inning over. Period.

No, wait...players darting around the field, umpires losing control of the game, allowing the players (AJ) to dictate the outcome of a play.

In the press conference afterward, the ump also managed to throw Josh Paul under the bus.

Essentially it's MLB's position that the players determined the outcome of the play, not the umps.

Bud Selig is doing everything he can to make baseball into wrestling. If this game isn't picked up from the 10th inning on, you are right, the whole thing's tainted.

Just like every MLB record over the last ten years, though.

I can also say that if this had been Alex Rodriguez doing this to the Red Sox, there might very well be small-scale volleys of gunfire between rival gangs across the Connecticut/New York border at this hour.

As bad as it was that the Doug Eddings blew that call, it was even worse that Doug Eddings let Ozuna steal second base and even worser that Doug Eddings gave up that double to Crede and in retrospect, EVEN MORE WORSEST STILL that Doug Eddings couldn't score more than one run off Buehrle in nine innings.

I was really upset when Eddings made the ground jump up and forced that ball to touch it before landing in the catcher's mitt. What's even more troubling is that Eddings didn't teach Paul one of the fundamentals of catching: tagging the batter or throwing to first on a ball in the dirt. But what I really can't believe is that Eddings sold his soul to the devil to will Pierzinski to run to first on a strike three ball in the dirt...

This Cubs fan says the ball hit the dirt. Watch the tape.

All that would be fine if that was the call the ump made: that the ball was in the dirt.

But it wasn't and you know it. He punched him out, with the same hands signals (plural) he's used all game and throughout his whole career (ESPN rolled the tape). Everyone on earth knew it, too.

What the players do have nothing to do with it. Hell, what if Pierzinski had run to third base, backwards? Or out to left field, doing cartwheels?

Or if after strike two, Josh Paul and the Angels had walked off the field, because they thought the inning was over? Do they make the rules?

Some years back baseball hired someone to say, "Hey fuckheads, no more being dicklickers and backing up bad calls. From now on being an umpire is not about rubbing your fellow umpire's balls when he fucks up, it's about comming together and sharing information to make the absolute right call." This was going swimmingly until last night when Doug Eddings had his knob slobbed by all the other umpires who "didn't see" and later "had technology." Peter Gammons, THE BASEBALL GUY OF ALL BASEBALL GUYS, said that the umpires should have got together and told Doug that his actions led everyone to believe he "rung up" or "called out" AJ. Thus, it is in everyone's best interest to stick with that call and move on to the 10th inning with a clean slate where actual baseball can be played, not umpire's dick in ass party train ball. No one will be talking about Buehrle pitching a great game for 50 years, but everyone will be talking about Doug Eddings being an ass for at least that amount of time.
