No instant replay is ruining a wonderful game in Phoenix

The Nationals and Diamondbacks are playing a wonderful and riveting game in Phoenix. (No really! They are!)

Roger Bernadina hit a ground out and the throw beat him to first in the 11th.
He was called safe.

In less than 20 seconds two angles were shown that the throw beat the runner at first.
The inning was extended and now Washington has the lead.

And as I type this the Nats hit a grand slam to give the team a huge lead.
The inning should have been over.
The pitcher made 3 outs. No fielder made an error. And yet he had to make FOUR outs.

Isn’t it worth 20 seconds to let the correct team win?

A wonderful game has been ruined.

Hope you idiots who are against instant replay love that blown call.

A good job interview for Albert Pujols

Albert Pujols stayed at home plate and watched his beautiful walk off home run against the Cubs sail for an extra beat.

It was his second straight walk off homer against the Cubs. And that look he gave to me has extra meaning.

It might just be saying “Take note Chicago… I could be doing this in Wrigley next year!”

I still think there will be a lot of pressure on Albert to go to either the Mets, Dodgers or Cubs next year.

I’ve written that before.
Well if that is going to be the case, smacking walk offs against his future employers can’t hurt.

But remember Cardinals fans… you can’t boo!

Thank you Miguel Olivo!

Mariners catcher Miguel Olivo hit the 8th inning Game winning homer to beat the Tampa Bay Rays today.

The Mariners were losing in the 8th and the rally, capped by Olivo’s blast, put the Rays down and this Red Sox fan is happy about that.

My Sox are going to try and chase down the Yankees this weekend. I don’t want Tampa sneaking up behind us.

Every win counts.

Thanks for the help.
