    This is what I hate about baseball. The umpires are too proud to get together and get it right. I love the NHL, at least they try to get it right.

    Why are grown adults throwing crap?

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    @202 because they aren’t “grown ups”…

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    Oh, and when the Braves lose, you will see another shower of crap on the field…

    St. Louis better wait till they get in the locker room to celebrate…

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    @204 because the “adults” haven’t grown up any in the last half-hour…

    Joke. This show will be fun

    Everything I feared would happen……. did and WAY more. Sad and predictable way to end the season.

    2 out of 3 next year MR. Selig. 2 out of 3. It’s only fair.

    At least Chipper didn’t make the last out of his last game as a Brave…

    To follow up my haiku from earlier…

    The infield fly rule
    Is not the reason we lost.
    But it still sucks. Boobs.

    It wouldn’t be Braves postseason baseball without a good stomach punch.

    Sigh. Maybe next year. :(

    212 – i know SP isn’t a glaring need, but can we add Lohse to that list?

    Texas looks to get the shaft as well. Nice one, Selig.

    Please tell me Nate McLouth is not giving a fistbump of celebration on the front page of ESPN.com right now. I’m beginning to think the Braves are seriously cursed somehow. Deeply, horribly, irreversibly cursed.

    Did our ABT’ers make it back safely? Y’all let us know.

    It doesn’t even feel like we made the playoffs.

    This hurts real bad.

    Where to begin…glad I went? Great atmosphere of crazed fans. While I didn’t throw anything on the field it made me feel better when others did. Between the errors, bad calls and men left on base I feel like we had no chance. Now it’s surreal. I know we’re done but I can’t believe the season is over.

    What a waste of potential. The Rev read where the Cards were chanting in field fly rule while popping champagne. #classy

    Nate Says:

    Well that sucked. Terrible interpretation of the infield fly rule, but the Braves lost this game not the umpires. Typical Braves/Atlanta postseason disappointment.

    Things I took away from the game:
    1. Let someone else overpay Michael Bourn
    2. What is Dan Uggla’s value to this team? The guy is an absolute butcher in the field, and he is not the hitter he was in Fla in 2010. I guess he runs out ground balls. I think I can do that, too, can I have 10 million dollars?
    3. No way Bobby makes it to the end of that game without getting tossed, not that that means anything or makes a difference.
    4. I wish Buck Showalter or some other solid, veteran manager was running this predominately young and inexperienced team. We are really going to miss Chipper next year.

    bub Says:

    Dude. I can’t believe that freaking happened like that.

    Nate Says:

    The infield fly is traditionally called when a player is under the ball or within range of making a simple catch and way before the ball is about to bounce off the turf. It’s amazing what introducing a 5th and 6th umpire can do. Remember that Twins/Yanks foul/fair ball fiasco from a couple years ago?

    not sure this ranks with Ron Gant getting pulled off first base and called out in th 91 WS, but insanely stupid call

    shouldnt have let it get to that point, of course, the errors, the errors

    i probably would have been throwing crap on the field, in fact, i know i would have. i would have thrown my iphone 4s, with its stainless steel rim, at the ups head, and i would have hit it. ive been working out alot lately.

    i would have gotten 4 years for assault with a deadly weapon, but im sure id be treated well inside

    @222 ump’s

    Walker Says:

    Let’s face it. It was bad karma facing an Native American pitcher in Lohse with those tomahawks in the stands. Everything was against us.

    Walker Says:

    We have to be the winningest team over the last two years without an appearance in the NLDS.
