Kennedy gets the 10th K to finish the game. First CG and First Shutout for Ian.

Okay. This probably was the worst day of luck I've ever had.

Narveson over Kennedy (-13 pts vs. 39 pts)

Then Broxton blows a save on an error and gets a loss (-6.5 pts) which takes away from my Garland win (-7).

Holy crap.

On sportsline my matchup is like 42.5 to 11.5. I'm ahead but I could have wrapped up the week had @%#%@ not happened. I could have been up by like 130.

Kennedy FTW.

Lee given up 3 runs so far, all off homeruns (2 run shot to left-center by Chris Young, and the Parra shot). Kennedy having a strong start, given up only 2 hits so far, no ER, and struck out 4.

Parra out on a called 3rd strike that was basically in the opposite batters box.


lol this, the strike 2 pitch was pretty bad also imo.


Missed that one, but apparently that must of been the one Parra complained about, and Grace thinks that is why the Ump called the awful 3rd strike.


Man, I hate stuff like this. Yeah, umpires blowing calls makes the game more interesting, and they tend to even out over time, so I do see the argument against going for more instant replay, having robots call balls and strikes, etc. But this, THIS right here is what sucks. That was CLEARLY a retribution thing. The ump didn't miss the call - it was so clearly a ball it actually did brush the other batter's box. He knew it was a ball and he called it a strike, because Parra gave him shit about the pitch before (which actually was a strike). Baseball players you can forgive their bouts of immaturity - they're elite athletes being paid ungodly amounts of money, you think some of them might have an ego? - but an umpire's ENTIRE JOB is about striving to be objective. This guy, Angel Hernandez, that one ump who shoved Milton Bradley, the one who rings up called strike 3 with histrionics rarely seen outside of bad community theater... screw all these guys. Give me robots.

hell yes robots. get pitchfx to call balls and strikes and get an ump in a booth to review close plays so it doesn't slow down the game. let the human element of the game be up to the players, not the umps. seriously that has to be the most retarded argument there is against instant replay.

Would anyone be kind enough to get Mr. Uggla a tee? This is getting pathetic.
