Oh what a night! Let's regroup

Armando Galarraga.jpgAll hell broke loose last night, and on the off-chance that you people have lives outside of baseball and weren’t glued to this blog, here’s a recap of our zone-flooding coverage:

  • Twenty-seven up, twenty-seven down . . . almost;

I’m sure there will be much more about both the Griffey retirement and the Joyce call as the day goes on, so tune it in to HardballTalk and rip off the dial.  We got you covered.

    Don’t forget “Touched by an Angel 2” last night in Toronto. After his bizarre failure on Tuesday to give Carlos Pena time during a 9th inning at bat in a tight game that led to Pena standing there watching strike three go by, Angel Hernandez last night managed to blow a critical call against the Rays once again, this time ruling that Sean Rodriguez didn’t touch 3rd base when scoring on a single in what was then a 2-1 Blue Jays lead in the 6th inning. Replays showed he clearly did (plus, there were no footprints near the bag), but unlike Jim Joyce, Hernandez (and crew chief Joe West) were unrepentant after the game.
    Fortunately for Tampa Bay, they ended up winning each of these games, but Angel Hernandez was once again not only wrong, but arrogant about it.

    I hear that some guys in shorts are playing some sort of game tonight in LA, and that some guys in pads played a pretty good game involving ice last night in Halliday’s backyard. And no one seems to be talking about those things. Wow.
    As much as I do follow the other sports, it’s days like yesterday that remind me why I love baseball with such a passion. And it’s only June. Imagine what we can expect in September.
    Next topic for discussion should be the pitching this season. Is it really that good? Are the batters really that weak without their PEDs? Is it all an illusion? And does it matter?

    Instant replay on base calls too? Exactly how long do you want the games to be, 5 hours?
