15th inning, man on third, two out. 0-2 count on the batter and...

Ball 1 :-S To be fair the catcher was crossed up, but it was about as close as you can get to the very center of the strike zone. Had to screen-shot it. There were no less than 2 other egregious calls in this half-inning alone.

Also, Josh Hamilton sucks. Got his payday and entered retirement mode. Looks like he's not even trying.

Can't be a strike if the catcher doesn't catch the ball. Pretty sure that's in the rule book.

I hope this game goes 20+ innings.

That's fine but I would like Donaldson to get a hit in his next AB.

Josh Donaldson has as many hits and RBI tonight as the rest of my AL Only roster combined. Best $1 I ever spent. Well, him or McLouth.

Hey we already got to see Skip Schumacher chucking 88 today. And yes, I live in the Central time zone and I'm still watching this game. At least I got the Top 50 Countdown article down while doing so!
