You can't ever complain about an umpiring call being the reason why you lost. Had the Angels scored a couple more runs it wouldn't have even mattered. You win some umpiring calls, you lose some umpiring calls. Plenty of calls broke in the Angels favor in the Yankees series, and I didn't hear any Angels fans complaining about the officiating then. If the Angels won, it was a non-issue. It's only now that one didn't go the Angels way that the crying starts. That's the way karma works for the way umps called stuff in the Yankee series. The umps got this one right.
The umps got this one right?! Dude, you're seriously a total idiot
then. Or a very bitter liar. Or as completely blind as the 6 umps on the field. Take your pick. Pathetic, Matt.
Seriously. That one comment there shows me exactly why you have so many problems in the Fantasy threads here.
But maybe you didn't hear me. Spewing that karma bull**** with respect to the similar play in the Yankees series is just that - bull****. You're damned right I can complain that this is the reason that the Angels lost tonight! You can't be serious about that, right? That was the THIRD OUT in the bottom of the ninth inning. They should've been going into extra innings after that, instead of having the very next batter come up and win the game for the Sox. Sure, the Sox may have won the game in extra innings, but they sure as **** shouldn't have won it in regulation. Only a dumbass bitter Yankees fan would claim some nonsense BS like that, and you did so exactly as I predicted.
If umpires make bad calls throughout games/seasons, then why has every media outlet across the country been saying all night long that this is one of the worst calls in the history of baseball, which will lead towards a strong push for, and the likely implementation of, video replay in the majors. No one said that **** after the Yankees series. At all. This call was slightly bigger than the average blown call, of which there are many during games and seasons, no doubt. Have you watched ESPN, or any other sports news, at all tonight?
But to blow this off as some average blown call is pure horse****, and tells me you don't know nearly as much about the game as you claim. You think this is just a bitter Angels' fan complaining here? No. Like I said, I'm INFURIATED whenever something like this happens to any team, and a game isn't decided by the players on the field - regardless of whether one of my teams is involved, or not. I'm sorry your Yankees sucked in the postseason again
, but that doesn't mean that any team that plays them and beats them has karma working against them. You don't think there were blown calls in favor of the Yankees in the last series?!? ****, I could list at least 5. You had ONE remotely questionable call go against you, for a runner running INSIDE the baselines, which is AGAINST the rules. I assume you did see the replay on that, right? Tonight's strikeout (and subsequent catch) was a hundred times more obvious than the similar play in the Yankees series.
Not to mention you guys didn't have to face our Cy Young probable pitcher, or our number 3 pitcher, both due to injuries and illnesses. Not to mention your team has the luxury of fielding a $200 million+ lineup of all-stars. If that's not enough to beat anyone, then you guys have a serious problem, and it's not the umpires making one call against you. Hell, you guys should've been winning every single game 11-5 with that team. Why they didn't, I have no idea. But as I was forced to learn the hard way when my Lakers got waxed by the Pistons 2 years ago, the best individual talent does not always win out.
But you've really shown me a lot with that comment about the umps getting this one right. You know what? I think everyone at JD has gotten something else right, and that's that when it comes to sports, you can be a completely classless moronic *******.
Like I said, don't get me started...
