So the ump's an idiot? Got it.

Utley's getting strikes called on him when the ball's 6"+ outside, and the Yankees are getting the same pitches called as balls when they're up to bat. It's inconstent, and it's bullcrap.

I'm not going to complain on that one, looks like it could have gone over.

It is inconsistent, but when the catcher moves his glove that way they usually don't get the call.

I would like to see the Phils make Andy work this inning, oops, maybe not.

The HR I'm willing to concede was a HR. But it should've been bases empty and 2 outs at the time, and the pitch selection would've been different.

Then maybe the ump should've looked at the ball and not the catcher. Like they're trained to do.

Fox is a disgrace to sports. Unbelievable that they have a fuckin camera in fair territory. A fan would be ejected.

agreed, and what are the odds a ball would actually hit it.

Phils are not having good at bats ahead in the count.

No, as a catcher, you need to make it look like a strike if you want to get the call. Ruiz didn't do that.

You have to move your glove out toward the plate to catch the ball ahead of where he caught it, so it looks more like a strike. They teach that at catching clinics. He didn't receive or frame that ball well at all.
