When you call the infield fly 1/2 second before it lands, it totally defeats the purpose of the rule.
The guys on the radio said the guy didn't put his hand up til it hit the ground

Either way that's just ****ed

You have a 6 game lead on a team and yet b/c the MLB wants to out do it's own stupidity of the ASG determining WS homefield, you decide that 6 game lead doesn't exist and play a tiebreaker game and then THAT happens.

Hopefully this is a quick end to that experiment.
