Braves seem to be piling up the errors here...

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

What the hell's going on at Turner Field right now? I can't see any of this but the radio guys are saying that the Atlanta fans are tossing debris onto the field?

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Now fans are getting HURT. The umps better stop this shit now.

Edit: ...And Bourn strikes out with the bases loaded.

Look, I don't mean to offend the Braves fans here on this board, 'cuz I'm guessing you're not at the game right now. But those jackasses in the stadium should be ashamed of themselves. They're damn lucky the umps didn't call a forfeit.

The call probably was bad. But I don't fucking care. Nothing justifies a riot like this.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I watched the play several times, I can't fathom how that was an Infield Fly when it was halfway out into the outfield. It was a fly ball to the outfield, the outfielder should have caught it. I could understand a few steps into the outfield being an Infield Fly Rule, but not that.

It wasn't a riot. Just tons of debris for 45 minutes from thousands of fans. Nobody got violent as far as I know. MLB denied a protest and called it a judgment call. What a load of crap.

Oh, and I how the Yankees get swept.

Careful. People might start to think Yankees fans are insufferable with talk like that. We wouldn't want that would we.

Look, I'm not really in favor of the behavior of the people throwing things in Atlanta but to sit here like a haughty moralist and pretend like this is the only city and fanbase that could possibly act like this is laughable. Could you imagine if this would have happened in these same circumstances in Philadelphia or even...gasp...New York!

After watching the Braves play to an empty house for the last few years it was strange to see the fans actually, ya know...give a shit.

Bizarre call, ugly reaction. The I spent $100 on a playoff ticket plus a dozen beers mentality can make a guy do just about anything.

Joe Saunders won, and Nate McLouth had 2 RBI in, a Major League Baseball playoff game in the year of our Lord 2012.

I'm still trying to figure out if I'm hallucinating.

Well, it has to be a judgment call. It's not the umps doing something clearly unauthorized (which is the only time a protest succeeds), in this case, it's a misinterpretation of the effect of the rule. If a strike is low, you can't say "how can you call that a strike, it wasn't above the knees. The umpires don't have the authority to call something a strike that is below the knees." It may be the wrong call, but it's still a judgment call.

Anyway, I think the Braves fans were justified in being upset. However, you know that there would be universal criticism if these were Philly fans.

1998. McGuire is ejected by Sam Holbrook and Cardinals fans litter the field in St. Louis during a game against the Atlanta Braves.
