Default Cardinals @ Braves Play-In WC Game Thread

Kind of looking forward to these, even if I completely disagree with the concept. Should be lots of excitement today.

Records be damned, when you play the Cardinals, they're the 1 seed and have a 10 run lead. I continue to be jealous.

What a terrible call.

Classy move, Braves fans. What are you, Cubs fans?

This is insane. That's a flyball to left field. What the heck.

What is the guy cleaning up the trash doing? He's picking things up and tossing them 2 feet over. That's going to take a long time to clean up with that technique.

Braves got robbed badly. Really makes you wonder if it's worth it to bring in extra umps for the playoffs anymore. They've made some bad calls the last few postseasons.

Long term I think they add one more WC and go with a structure like the NFL. Perhaps a 3 game series to start which will expand to 5 shortly.

Is it just me or does the umpiring get WORSE in the playoffs?

Sure, you see the occasional screw job in the regular season, but during postseason play the last few years it seems like you see some sort of egregious error every game.
