Keep choppin!! It’s not over yet!! No chance that’s an infield fly
Lil' Barry Bailout (Unexpectedly Revised Downward)
Braves getting jobbed right here.
oh boy .. this situation again
Put this game under protest
Braves = Choke.
UMPS are screwing us over!!! that wasn’t an infield fly!
What a call
Too deep….Umps have killed us
OMG, OMG Fredit better get thrown out here… that is some sick shizz
Infield fly? WTF. WTG Sam Holbrook.
Are braves going to the WS? Yes, they are, but just to watch.
Infield fly rule? Really?????????
What a BS call.
You have got to be kidding me!!!!!
Chuck from Waycross
should have never brought boggs in…good call by the umps…
Infield fly no WAYY hobrook
You have GOT to be kidding me!!!! Way to rip us off Umps.
Infield fly rule was a stupid call by the umps. Brutally stupid!
October 5th, 20127:53 pm
how can Fredi walk back to the dugout?
he needs to go BACK out there and get tossed
That ball is in LF.
What a crappy call
6 Finger 2 tooth Braves Fan
DAAAAAAAAAMMMMMM. Throwing stuff on the field.
Dem “Lanta fans are da worse in all sports!
Fans need to stop throwing, or that will be a forfeit. Embarassing as Joe Simpson said.
Ok, now THIS is an #umpshow
Wow . . .
Wow! This is bad.
WORST F-ING CALL EVER!!!!!
It was an atrocious call but the beer bottle throwers are idiots.
October 5th, 20127:54 pm
Not good by the fans, but that was a god awful and season changing call
Oh Lord, fans. Act right. There’s no cause for this.
One thing to protest. It is another to throw crap on the field. Stay classy fans.
Question…..Can they punish the Braves for the fans behaviors? If so….how much an how bad?
Embarassing? I’m glad the fans are throwing crap. About time we showed some fire.
Embarassing was that call. Fans should riot.
NO MORE FREDI
Finally!! Way to go Braves fans!!!!
Lanta fans are losers! worst in all sports!
We Will Get Fooled Again
This is a travesty in every way.
Throw more stuff. The call sucked!!!!!
I dropped my fried twinkie
That is 10 yards in the outfield.
Hell yes Rush the field beat the sh&t out of that UMP
There is No Way In Hell that can be called the Infield Fly Rule
a compete Atlanta meltdown…well at least no shots were fired which is usually the case.
Late call. Awful
typical georgia trash…atlanta is tuscalossa with a bigger airport…
The A Bomb
The ghost of Eric Gregg
Throwing trash on the field is not nearly as embarrassing as that call! That was unbelievable !
This fu***ng crap happens in a 1gm playoff. How the hell can that sh** hold?
Late infield fly call too. WTF!
Fans are throwing stuff on the field! The fans have thrown a lot of garbage on the field. Just a pathetic call by the umpires and now the fans are affecting the play in the game. This could result in a forfiet of the game if calm is not restored!
It should be bases loaded and one out but the ump called the infield fly out AFTER the ball hit the ground. That defeats the purpose of the rule itself.
I love this. Punk rock!!!!!
terrible decision, and even worse display by the fans. Disgusting behaviour.
October 5th, 20127:55 pm
Can they contest this game?
October 5th, 20127:57 pm
VERY classy Atlanta!!!
Fredi needs to go back out there and get some more.
Now the whole thing is total crap.
Jon Heyman @JonHeymanCBS
garbage raining on field after infield fly rule is called on ball to shallow left. fredi was hot for a reason
Ken Rosenthal @Ken_Rosenthal
Doesn’t excuse fans’ conduct, though. This is ridiculous.
protest the game
Infield means INFIELD umo!
Terrible call. I hate seeing this by the fans, but absolutely terrible, terrible call. That’ll cost the Braves.
THAT friends, is 17 seasons of frustration getting thrown out on the field.
IDIOT UMP. REALLY??? CARDS ARE REALLY THE BASEBALL GOLDEN BOYS> THAT UMP SUCKS.
How can you have infield fly rule that deep in outfield?
I hope a bottle hits that fat ass umpire in the f’n head. The fans aim is as bad as Uggla’s to first base.
HOLBROOK SHOULD BE FIRED. WORST CALL EVER. What BS will MLB say about this call?
Holbrook just LOOKS like he knows he blew it.
That umpire should lose his job….
That is probably the worst call i’ve ever seen in my life.
You guys don’t think we’re cursed?
Worst call I’ve ever seen. Typical MLB, no other ump has the balls to reverse the call. God damn embarrassment to the sport.
And now Atlanta fans take the heat off of the players by embarrassing themselves more than the players have. Lovely.
Am I the only one that thinks that Fredi should not have left that field until he got ejected?
Not a chance in hell Bobby doesn’t get kicked out of thet game in that spot.
I remember these guys from the Green Bay/Seattle game.
Dang replacement umps
One thing i always loved about Bobby Cox… he would of ripped all those umpires a new one on that crappy call!
The Blogger Formerly Known as Billy
unreal……u f’ing real
Good for the Braves fan. Most respectful fans in the game, but this is ridiculous.
Somebody should lose their job over this, better yet, I’m sure one of those fans will find out their hotel information.
good call, just being honest
Ah say clear the stadium! No fans allowed for rest of game.
WOW I cant believe that call! I am stunned!
Joe Sheehan @joe_sheehan
And this is why it can’t be a best-of-one. Because some random #umpshow can invalidate 162 games.
There is no way that ball could be caught by an infielder with “ordinary effort.” Total incompetence by the umpires.
Buster Olney @Buster_ESPN
Nelson Cruz now wondering why infield fly wasn’t call on David Freese’s game-tying hit in Game 6 last year.
F U umps.
October 5th, 20127:58 pm
Infield means INFIELD!
Long about this time the Braves fans decided to show ole Boss Hog what class was all about. Good call on the infield fly rule by the way. Go Giants Go Cards
This is why I am against this one game play-in. An entire season boiling down to one bad call.
Bravesgrl4life… go root for another team plz, you know nothing about baseball if u think thats a good call!
Train Wreck Bystander
That is just surreal…
Hammer the Homer
this game is fixed darn it………………………
The radio guys are saying that this game is seconds away from a forfeit.
did we borrow the replacement NFL refs?
I think the shortstop got pass interference called on him.
October 5th, 20127:59 pm
heh…The blog crashed under pressure. Does it run on a potato?
Serious questions — requesting explanation….
If they don’t get the fans to stop, what can be done to the team? Can they be forced to forfeit the game?
Can the officiating crew alter the call if they stand out there and talk among themselves?
I don’t blame the fans–at all! Joe, go somewhere else and call games next year.
Hope someone’s filming this. This is embarrassing! I’m ashamed to be a Braves fan!
I’m going to be a Phillies fan next year…In about 45 minutes
I would throw crap too
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
