Better go re watch the game... then take a min to digest what the ump said himself.
He said he was thinking about a missed call earlier in the game where he called a low ball a strike, so he told himself he was not gonna let that happen again.
next time try to do a little research before you spew you filth
Oh well, I'm cooling off. Like I said before, I didn't bet it, so I was just annoyed with an ugly game. Figured I'd write something - didn't think it would get this much attention, hahaha!
The ump call a pitch lower than that a strike to an Angel batter, I did have money on the Angel and the only reasonable explanation would have been because you don't get borderline strike call with a wild pitcher in Fuentes.
Hahahah, G, I feel your pain, buddy. Well, like I said, I didn't have any money on last night's game, and while the Angels may not have DESERVED to win, I still think Green struck, and I don't like baseball rewarding a player who takes a pitch THAT CLOSE with 2 outs in the 9th and the bases loaded. It's moneyball at its very worst and it's boring.
Actually since my G Connections had Boston, I watched most of the game. To me, watching live, the "ball 4" to Green was down the middle but looked below the knees. If you see in regular speed, it was low.
If there was a "fix", it wasn't as obvious as watching a 2nd baseman let a ball go thru his legs and let the score go over at the top of the 9th. I remember dropping 5 Units in the 90s on a game like that.
And also for all you people out there, the home plate ump had the same strike zone all night long. I just went back and watched the last few innings on pitch trax and every single time there was a ball pitches in that same spot it was called a ball for both teams. Every player wants it to be consistent and it was... so you guys should stop blaming the ump...
Hey, it's a tough job, but it's our right to critique 'em. They know it's a thankless job going into it, but those guys make about 16x what I make in a year, so I'll save my pity for someone else.
No offense to anybody on this forum, but none of you guys have any idea what kind of pressure is on Pro Refs and Umpires. Until you walk a step in those guys shoes, you guys should refrain from making judgements of them being "bad" or "cheating"
Maybe there were some Angels in on it...Juan Rivera's effort on that dunker to left field was a little iffy, too...
Well, for the check swing, I was hoping to illuminate some of the rules that most people don't know. A Minor League umpire and I got drinks after a game and he talked to me at great length about how he judges a check swing. Obviously, we can all have different opinions on whether the one last night was a swing or not, but it sure looked like Green swung with the intent of hitting that ball.
I'd say the chances of the game actually being "rigged" is about 0.001%, but that game just had me hysterical with confusion, and I didn't even have any money it. Believe me, unassail, by Monday, I won't even remember this happened, but on the nationally televised game, I would have hoped for a better showing from blue
Dan I respect everything you contribute to Pregame, but I think we need to take a step back before we even go near calling it a Tim Donaghy situation.
I have been a little league umpire for 12 years, I am only 23 years old but have a real grasp for the game of baseball. I think the umpire got the check swing call right, That 3-2 pitch that walked in the run was close, but we don't know what the umpire saw, I do think though that that 2-0 pitch where the strike was 3 inches from the dirt in the top of the 9th was ridiculous. Baseball is a sport where human error by officials is more profound and seen than in other sports, IMO.
He might have just missed the call, That stuff does happen, umpires are human.
I hope no blames this game squarely on the umpires. How many double plays did the Angels blow to keep the Red Sox in the game? How many leads did they blow? What about their left-fielder giving up on the game winning hit?
One ball or strike, fair or foul, safe or out judgment call in a 9 inning baseball will outweigh any of the other calls that were made no matter the situation.
That is from an umpire's perspective.
its just miserable some of these guys. Most are solid but it could be so easily eliminated and it gets really cumbersome and time consuming to cap these guys zones. Maybe they will look at using what's available to make the game better.
I couldn't get it off my mind all day, so I just HAD to write something about it.
that was a terrible ending and we had Boston. The strike call can be made perfect with technology and MLB has not found the motivation to use it. This is despicable and needs to be changed. It is pretty simple. Have the home plate umpire sit bedhind home plate and the technology determines a strike, they get a beep in their ear and call a strike. It is pretty damn simple based on the technological steps we have made. Fuentes and the Angels was robbed
