Just a couple minutes late getting here but just in time to see Zimmerman's drive.

And now Bourn misplaying a ball!    :rofl:

Today's home plate umpire Tim McLelland is, according to PitchF/X data compiled since 2010, the best balls/strikes calling umpire in baseball with an 89.3% accuracy rate.

That looked like a pitch Harper should crush later on in his career.

Oh well.

Downside of the heat & humidity: it's hot.  And it's humid.

Upside of the heat & humidity: the ball is gonna be FLYING around the park tonight.  Against someone like Tim Hudson that's good news.  OTOH the same applies to Gio.

Hey, anyone else here without power?  I'm at the office because it's the only place with A/C, power, and internet.

My power went out during the crucial part of Friday nite's game.  I had to load batteries in my radio to hear the ending.  Luckily for us, the power came on about two hours later.

Why the freak did he get squeezed on a few of those pitches? The first one and fourth one should have been called strikes with the pitcher hitting

Yep.

And yet, just below 90% accuracy.   Shows how difficult a skill it is.
