MacFail had to find some way to save Baylor's ass,so he paid off the home plate umpire!!Yeah,it sounds lame,but why did it take 5 to 6 seconds to call a strike on Sox hitters?? The sCrUBS got all the damn calls and I hope they're happy 'cause now Baylor STILL has a job and THE CUBS STILL SUCK!!!!!!!!!!

That ump was atrocious. Even my cub-fan-in-the-closet bf thought the ump was making really bad calls.

The length of time to make a called strike was very annoying. Unfortunately, Clement gave him many opportunites to annoy.

I give Clement his props, but I don't believe for one minute (also the length of time it took the ump to call strikes)that he truly struck out that many. It seemed that he was given a "Pedro" strike zone. More than once, I noticed that if we had a man on base with one out, it was a given that the ump would start calling strikes like crazy. It was totally nuts. And poor Burlymon was forced to throw cookies---I mean, guys that had .230 averages were getting big hits! You could see the frustration on his face. The fun didn't stop until the scrubs were up 9 runs. Then the ump noticeably started to call the game more fairly.
