Great, the Turd Birds are already ahead.

I knew they'd win this game.  They all have horseshoes up their asses.

Texas should never have put Darvish out there.  I can't think of a single Japanese pitcher since Nomo who's been worth a damn.

But that has nothing  to do with the call

"An INFIELD FLY is a fair fly ball (not including a line drive nor an attempted bunt) which can be caught by an infielder with ordinary effort, when first and second, or first, second and third bases are occupied, before two are out. The pitcher, catcher and any outfielder who stations himself in the infield on the play shall be considered infielders for the purpose of this rule.
When it seems apparent that a batted ball will be an Infield Fly, the umpire shall immediately declare “Infield Fly” for the benefit of the runners"

You don't have to be "under it" when the call is made.

Oh and after watching the replay, he was under it. He had come to a stop and was looking directly up.

I already burst this bubble.

Having to go that far onto the outfield does not constitute "ordinary effort" for an infielder.  End of.

Yes, because  rules should be open to "feelings"

"it's a judgment call" has been said quite a few times, so yeah I'd say there's room for interpretation here.  I'm not even sure you and the rest of the people arguing about this are arguing the same thing.

Joe Saunders has a one run lead. Game.

Yeah. I forgot where I read it but since Selig introduced the second wild card slot after the schedule was already created, the NLDS had to be switched around a bit.

Which is bullcrap because they had all season to work it out. Plus it's baseball. They travel and play games in other cities the next day all the time.

Hardy singled and knocked in McLouth.

Joe Saunders has a one run lead. Game.

I'll admit to becoming the ultimate, irrational doomsayer when it comes to the Woes, this year.  That team has 99 lives.

If the Nats make it to the World Series, I fully expect them to lose to the Orioles in a string of extra-innings losses. :hang:

Exactly. Selig freaking sucks.

Luckily we're the best road team.

191 IP, 16-9, 3.90 ERA, 3.18 FIP, and 5.1 WAR

He's actually been quite good.  Especially if you look at his last few starts.

Why are the O's pitching Saunders!?!?!

Maybe it's just because I'm completely unfamiliar with the teams, but I find it extremely difficult to get into AL baseball.

Quite a turnaround, then.  Earlier in the year, I had him on my fantasy team and he would pitch an occasional clunker.  When he didn't, it was because he'd get lucky enough to strand all the runners he walked.  Reminded me of very early Matsuzaka.

Earlier in the year, he was struggling. But he turned it around.

Let's put it this way: I wish the Nationals had spend 100 million on Yu Darvish instead of 11 million on Edwin Jackson.

It's weird seeing the Nats on a real channel.  We watch them so much in our crappy low-rent MASN universe that sometimes I feel like they don't exist outside of it.
