I loved how the crowd started chanting "infield fly" after every ball hit to the outfield.
 
2012-10-06 02:12:10 AM  
The TBS commentators seemed rather upset at the fans about their reaction (tossing bottles, trash, midgets, etc. onto the field). To me, I can understand why they were upset. They came to see a fair ball game, and when something that atrocious happens, that is not corrected, it makes one upset about shelling out craploads of money for parking, seats, and $8.00 beer. The agreement is that I pay you money, you show me a fair athletic competition. I'm not getting my money's worth when calls like that are allowed to stand.

I know, many will argue that the Braves lost the game with three errors. I can't argue that. However, the game wasn't over after those errors, and they deserved a fair chance to come back. Bases loaded with one out is a hell of a difference from runners on 2nd and 3rd with two outs. For one thing, a sac fly (as long as it's to the outfield) plates at least one run.

Don't be pissed at the fans who paid good money and believe they have been cheated out of watching a fair ball game. That ruling easily could have been overturned.

And why the fark is the outfield umpire making an infield fly rule call? Shouldn't that be handled by the infield umpires?

When the fark was the last time fans threw trash onto the field for 15 minutes?

Like 1930something?

That was unexfarkingscusable, the fans should be ashamed, and the Braves damn near should have had to forfeit.

He's probably going to sleep for about a day or two, then take his family on a long, long vacation.

I saw him in an interview discussing what he had had to give up to be a baseball player for so long. He said he's never taken his family on Spring Break, or on a summer vacation to Florida. While I'm sure they've been many, many places during the winter, the fact that you've never taken your kids on summer vacation has to weigh on a father, especially when you are that wealthy. 

It was pretty cool that all he wanted to talk about was how much he missed being with his family.

You've never tried driving the Downtown Connector to get to a sold-out Friday Braves game, have you? That sh*t would make a nun want to kill somebody.

Look, I'm not advocating doing what they did. I'm not saying it was right. But I am saying that major league sports should expect things like that to happen when people are paying out the ass to see a fair athletic competition, and they feel like they just got cheated out of their money.

Do you honestly believe for one second that MLB would providing refunds on their tickets? Parking? $8.00 beers? 

Major League Baseball should feel ashamed as well for allowing such an incorrect call to stand, thereby calling into question the integrity of the game. Atlanta fans are fine with the Braves losing. We don't riot or anything like that. However, Georgia rednecks do not like to feel cheated out of their money.

The drive can't be much worse than sitting at the Whitestone Bridge toll plaza for two hours. It's not so bad anymore, but going to Mets games in the 90s, you could be stuck there for two hours.

Also, depending on how you look at it, the call wasn't AS bad as it looks. Basically, it boils down to whether or not the average shortstop could catch that ball with "normal effort." If so, infield fly. The horribly late call by the ump looks awful, but the question is "normal effort."

Refunds? No way that happens. But bad calls have happened before, in big situations. Did fans throw bottles onto the field for 15 minutes after the Dekinger call? I don't mean that rhetorically, I actually don't know.

It doesn't appear so, according to Wikipedia:

Denkinger was the umpire at first base and called Orta safe, even though television replays and photographs clearly showed that he was out by half a step. The Cardinals argued briefly,[3] but Denkinger refused to reverse it. The Royals went on to win Game 6 by the score of 2-1.

Here's the video, but it cuts just after the call to the next play.

So what are your thoughts? Is it foreseeable that fans will act in such a manner when they feel they are paying good money to see an athletic competition that somehow is not being adjuticated fairly? I'm not asking if it's right, but do you think it is... understandable?
 
2012-10-06 02:41:17 AM  

Dafatone: The horribly late call by the ump looks awful, but the question is "normal effort."


As I said in the 700+ post thread, the "best" thing MLB could've done (within the rulebook) would be to actually uphold the protest that the call was late...but then point out that the lateness didn't affect the outcome of the game at all (and possibly helped the Braves). In that case, there'd be no restarting the game.

Unfortunately, that would just confuse even more people, so...

Like hell. The next batter walked, which would have been one more run, and left the bases still loaded with one out. You can't ever say "that wouldn't have affected the outcome of the game" in baseball. The only thing that applies to is the bottom of the ninth when the home team wins, which is why it's not played.

Yeah, so, you have NO IDEA what I said, but ok. Have fun arguing with fake-me.

However, what real-me is saying is this:

Pretend that "infield fly" had been called half a second after the ball was struck. How would the result of this new play differ from the result of the actual play?

Well, the batter would be out, so that's the same. Would the runners have advanced? If so, that's exactly the same as the real play. If not, then the lateness of the call benefited Atlanta.

It would have still been a horrible call. Fact was, that was in no shape, form, or fashion an infield fly, and the lateness of the call only added to the controversy. Had it been called as the ball was still traveling upward, as an infield fly normally would have been, it would have still been a bad call, but it would have been within the rules. The infield fly call must be made "immediately".

I'm sure you've seen this too many times tonight, but...

"When it seems apparent that a batted ball will be an Infield Fly, the umpire shall immediately declare "Infield Fly" for the benefit of the runners. If the ball is near the baselines, the umpire shall declare "Infield Fly, if Fair."
The ball is alive and runners may advance at the risk of the ball being caught, or retouch and advance after the ball is touched, the same as on any fly ball. If the hit becomes a foul ball, it is treated the same as any foul."

What I'm saying is that it was a horrible call, but it was a judgement call, like a "ball" or "strike". However, because it was not called immediately, it was an improper application of the rules, so it became a valid protest. MLB has harmed the integrity of the game by disallowing the protest.

People have been doing this forever. Maybe it's not great, but I understand. Hell, if it'd have been MY team (sob sob Rockies) and I saw that, I would have probably thrown stuff too.

That said, the Braves had other chances to tie the game. Heck, I think they left the bases loaded in the 7th 8th and 9th. Also, all those errors. The umps didn't make Chipper throw that ball in to the outfield, nor Uggla throw it in to the dugout.

Hey I can bold stuff too!

When it seems apparent...for the benefit of the runners.

Even if it is late, that doesn't negate the entire call. By the rulebook, it was still an infield fly (on an admittedly shaky judgement call). By your interpretation, if a pitcher touches his mouth, then the ball and then throws it real fast in the strike zone, that should be a called strike. Sure, the rule says it SHOULD be a ball, but only if the ump calls it immediately.

If anything, St. Louis should be protesting the lateness. The call is supposed to be made early because of the runners, but in this case, the lateness may have benefited them.

Anyway, I've already gone over this in the other thread, so I'm going to bed. Have fun coming up with crazy interpretations.

And you probably wonder why people think that Atlantans are just farking Georgia rednecks. Please remember your state was settled by convicts. If ANYONE should have been pissed it's the Cards (not a fan of them). The long delay for the fans' stupidity (you get hit in the eye by a mini-bottle, even empty, you're losing the eye asshole) which caused the Cards to not only have to bring in Motte, but also use him for two innings, could have affected the outcome of the game at least, and probably more, than the borderline infield fly. The Ump should have called it sooner or not at all. And if you look at it carefully, the shortstop WAS camped under the ball and then inexplicably ran out from under it. Perhaps he heard the ump hell "infield fly, batter out" as he was raising his arm? We'll never know. There are ways to figure out who was throwing stuff. Major league baseball ought to tell Atlanta that they will figure out who did the throwing of stuff that was dangerous (i.e., cans of beer half full, small class bottles, etc.). There are bad calls virtually every inning in baseball that affect the outcome -- it's what makes baseball great -- nobody's without error. No matter how bad the call, how drunk you are, there is NO EXCUSE to throw a missile at someone. Here in Virginia, if you throw an empty coffee cup at someone it can be prosecuted as a felony (it has, and there was a conviction). Go find yourself some roadkill possum and make a stew boy.
 
2012-10-06 06:04:10 AM  
And for the record, if the umpire had made the correct call, which was a no infield fly call, Motte is still brought in for the next batter and the Cards still win. He's frigging lights out.

I'm laughing because everything you say is true (except the part about the shortstop "camped" under the ball - I disagree). I'm laughing even harder because I'm currently in Alabama and my sister just gave me a pair of camouflaged boots and I wore them to Wal-Mart last night, and I looked at my redneck-looking ass in the mirror and longed for the sophistication of Atlanta.

But congrats on a good season, and I hope you guys didn't blow out Strausburg's arm. You'll need him next season, when we come after you with a fully operational Kris Medlen.

There would have been only one out with the bases loaded, and a sac (non-infield, heh) fly would have plated at least one run. AND he would have already given up a walk and two singles in that inning (okay, maybe that last would have been called an error). I'll agree he's a darn good pitcher, but he wasn't having his best day. Hard to say what would have happened.

This was the same ump who tossed Mark McGwire in the first inning the season when he was chasing the home run record, so St. Louis should feel squared up as far as he's concerned.
 
2012-10-06 07:57:58 AM  
That was a text book infield fly. Had an umpire made that call in any game I had played from little league through college baseball and softball after that, I would have agreed with it. Per the rule and per my understanding of the rule - infield fly

Just because you don't like it or don't understand the rule does not make it a bad call. It was the correct call, learn the rules before you complain or ridiculously compare this to obviously blown calls

Dude, people are upset because he called it a second before it hit the ground, with unanswerable questions around SS and LF communication. If it was Legit, he should have called it before the Apex of the Fly. If it was an infield fly (which isn't going to be called 999 out of 1,000 times in that situation) he farked up the call by the timing. Pay Attention.

ox45tallboy: DeWayne Mann: but then point out that the lateness didn't affect the outcome of the game at all

Like hell. The next batter walked, which would have been one more run, and left the bases still loaded with one out. You can't ever say "that wouldn't have affected the outcome of the game" in baseball. The only thing that applies to is the bottom of the ninth when the home team wins, which is why it's not played.


Pitch selection would have been different with bases loaded, so the walk can't be assumed. It obviously would have ended up a ground ball double play, getting the cardinals out of the inning, given the way the game was going for the Bravos.

I wish the umps would have gotten together and reversed that call. All us Cards fans can do is move on and enjoy more post season baseball.

It was totally justified, not classless.

It is the same as the Cleveland Browns in 2001 when they reviewed a play TWO plays previous. When the refs ruin the game that you paid good money for, you have every excuse to show your displeasure by interrupting the farce on the field.

Braves' fans butthurt tears -- exquisite.
Watching them justify the most classless group action by baseball fans in decades -- priceless

There is a huge difference between letter of the law and spirit of the law. That may have been a "textbook" infield fly, but that situation has occurred 100 times this year with no infield fly call (let alone one so horribly administered). After 162 games of it being called one way, it is rough to see it called differently when it really matters.
