Wow.

(Nathan's 300 save).
I wonder how much longer we have to go before we get robots calling balls and strikes.



This is ****ing ridiculous

MLB play-by-play announcers are always quick to point out that balls and strikes are judged based on the ball's location as it crosses the plate, rather than where the catcher catches the ball, as fans sometimes mistakenly believe. Be that as it may, the ball is clearly outside the strike zone as it crosses the plate, and should not have been ruled a strike.

Does anyone else besides me find it amusing that AJ was involved in this play? Obviously, he had nothing to do with the call being incorrect, but it's funny that he was there.

Looking at that, it bothers me even more that the first pitch was called a strike in spite of its being outside the zone. What the hell was Foster thinking? I don't think Foster deserves to be suspended, as he admitted that he'd made a mistake after the game was over. Having said that, I hope MLB issues some form of punishment, as he clearly wasn't doing his job properly.

I feel really, really bad for the Rays and Zobrist. What a joke.

I thought the Dodgers were good, why is Uribe in the 5 hole?
