Stunned that AJ didn't throw his helmet down after getting buzzsawed like that

I like the Pitch Trax graphic, I really do, but does it need to be up the entire at bat?

Funny though. They showed a sign in the Texas crowd at the end of the game yesterday, something to the effect "it's great to live in a BASEBALL town!"

Edit - just found it

Robots and lasers, plz. The best thing that can happen to baseball is umpires making bad calls in big games.

Why didn't trap calls ever get approved. I thought it was voted in for review?

Reminds me a lot of the Blackout Game for the Sox, not a ton of time to get all the tickets out to the corporate suits and ****, just fans at the park watching a do-or-die game.
It's admittedly filled in since first pitch when the UD corners were vacant.

They're just lucky the Cowboys aren't on MNF.

Given Arlington is halfway between Dallas and Fort Worth, I'm inclined to believe there needs to a be some advance planning to go to a game.

Having been to Rangers Ballpark and going to Cowboys Stadium Saturday, it is a ridiculous pain in the ass, especially if you need a DD.

Hopefully the bad call ultimately ends up not meaning much. I hate it when umpires become the story of a game.

On to Cleveland for the Rays. Sorry, AJ and Alex.

Pretty much a gem from Price.

Easy fellas, you won a trip to Cleveland. But I guess you have to act excited when MLB needs you to sell tshirts and hats.

God damn, Price is an ace.
