    Do you NOT listen to Mr. Selig? They are writing him letters like crazy advocating a ban on all technology. (I actually wonder whether these people are using the yellow pages to look up MLB's address or asking their grandchildren to find it for them on the computer thingy)

    I do everything in my power to not listen to Bud Selig. His hair scares me.

    I don't think the opposing pitching has been all that great. The Yankees are just making them look that way.

    Much like Doc Brown's blackboard example in Back to the Future, the call shifted the game into a parallel history track. While as it turned out, the Yankees ended up resembling the doofus George McFly, had the error not occurred, perhaps the Yankees would have ended up with a best-seller, that is the accomplished author George McFly. Instead of a weak single, A-Rod might have launched a game-tying HR. Coke would have pitched differently, Leyland and Girardi would have managed differently, etc. No way to know how it would have turned out short of traveling back in time and changing the call to an out and then playing the game from there.

    Agree and that is not to mention that the umps blew a call in the game before on Cano. You never know what would have happened if they had gotten that call right but it cost the Yankees a run and you can speculate that if they had they hit those two homers in the 9th the game would have been over and Jeter never would have gotten hurt! That call in game 2 was just ridiculous and inexcusable considering these umpires are supposed to be the cream of the crop, not to mention that the umpire was well positioned and right on top of the play. I just don't understand how he could have missed it.

    Definitely. Would have changed the game. In game 2 even if it went 18 innings we wouldnt have scored a run.

    So what is the excuse for all the other playoff offenses that have absolutely sucked this offseason?

    Re: The bad call... did it matter?

    The only thing we know for sure is if Cano had been called safe the Yankees are up 1-0. Would that be enough to win. Do not know but you would think maybe Girardi uses his relievers differently with a lead in the 7th inning. And Valverde would have still pitched the ninth inning if the Tigers lead was less than 4 runs.

    As for Sunday as has been already posted. Even with the right call the Yankees are still behind by 1 run. The result could very well have been the same.

    The game changes at that point if the Yanks score. And possibly score some more. I'm not saying they would have won but the game would have been totally different at that point and yes, the chain of events after would have been as well.

You're sitting there and the ball looks like it's coming right at you and you react. Or it's behind you and drifts towards you very quickly in it's descent. Everyone around you is nudging to make a play on it. I doubt these fans are thinking they're going to prevent an out. And, although I know if I had the presence of mind at the time I'd make a different decision, the ball is technically out of play and if they go for it so be it. In other words, I admire a fan for getting out of the way, but certainly not going to hate on one that doesn't. And I REALLY don't like when players get miffed at fans in those scenarios, like Alou did on the Bartman play or as Tex mildly did on the play I think you're referring to.
    Obviously I'm just angry and venting. You're correct just being facetious. But I do feel strongly about seat responsibility. I understand and have heard all the arguments that the ball is fair play once it goes into the stands. But just because you can do something doesn't mean you should. Anyone that interferes with the game in a way that hurts the Yankees, especially in the playoffs and even more especially when we need wins, you're an ass. Plain and simple. They need to use their heads. When you sit in the first few rows check to see if a player is coming over to make a play. If he is, get the eff out of the damn way and let him try. It's not that hard. Even if it looks like he may not, be proactive and give him a chance. The players are better at judging these things than the fans are, if he's coming full steam to you assume he's trying to make the play. Don't interfere.

    That just proves the point. The teams that make the postseason are the best teams. Typically, you will see the best teams' best pitchers. Other offenses are likely to be shut down as well, but personally I am not at all surprised at how impotent they've made our offense look.

    I think my comments pretty much explained that. You may disagree with that point of view, but with all due respect what else would you like me to say?
