As an aside...was I the only one who laughed my ass off to Hawk's reaction to the blown call in the 10th? It sounded like someone killed his dog or something.

I actually am thankful that Hawk did that: because of his inanity, I didn't get nearly as angry as I thought I was going to be.

That's fine, if they could just get the humans that are C.B. Bucknor, Angel Hernandez, and Joe West out of MLB, then things would start looking up.

You can't keep your closer for a save in extra innings at home, because it's not possible to have a save situation. Every inning is as close to a save situation as you are going to get in extra innings at home, and there's no sense in keeping your best reliever on the pine if you're trying to win the game IMO.

They're not going to give in just because you have superior logic. Rules is rules and we're going to follow them even if they keep our best pitcher out of the game.

To be replaced by younger morons with similar agendas. Baseball is the foremost example of the "good ole' boys club" on this planet.
