I don't know what the stipulations would be, but I'd be willing to bet something (A 'Canes jersey?) that the Diamondbacks finish the regular season with a better record than the Cards (Not counting playoffs though, since you're chasing the Brewers and Pirates, while we're chasing the defending WS Champs so it wouldn't be fair) =)

My condolences to all the Pirates fans here. That was the worst call I've ever seen.

Before Anton the Great says something similar: Yes, we're the luckiest team in the world.

I just gotta say, I love Twitter, especially since TeenNick's been showing the 90s Nick shows late at night. All the kids growing up watching Doug and the like can now rewatch the episodes and posts philosophical questions on Twitter.

Like, if everything Mr. Dink had was "very expensive", what job did he have? Or was Mrs. Dink the provider?

When I wake up later today, I hope that Jerry Meals is no longer an employee of Major League Baseball. I wouldn't be all that pissed normally, but the Pirates are contending and that call could have huge implications come September (if the Bucs are somehow still in it.)

I think someone slipped acid in his drink between innings causing him to think the plate was shifted up and to the left 5 feet. That's the only explanation I can come up with.

He even gave up on the slide because he knew he was dog meat. How can he be called safe there?

Exhibit number 5,004 why MLB needs replay. pardon my French but what the *** is the point of playing if arbitrary calls decide games like this on an ever increasing basis.

Unfortunately, baseball values tradition more than any other sport. We probably won't see more replay until the last of the baseball dinosaurs die off. People still complain about interleague play and the DH to this day.

My favorite part is the double-take from the catcher.

Its saddens me to say it, but I hope something like this happens in a WS game 7, only way something will change.

I tell you what, let's revisit this the day after the trade deadline... I'd take it right now, because I think we are better now, but dynamics could change drastically from a few trades. That would give us both a chance to see which team we are going to field. I think trade deadline is Sunday, so it's only a few more games. Sound fair?

It's obvious that the ump thought it was bang bang and wanted to go home. He knew it might have been close and thought people would see it as a close play.... OOPS

I watched the first 9 innings of that game and that ump was terrible. He threw out McClouth and Freddi for arguing an incredibly low called strike. That was a terrible call to end the game, I'm happy the braves won but that call kinda takes it away.

That's one of the most inexplicable calls I've ever seen, in any sport, at any level. Sometimes refs flat out miss things, but that was one where he actively called the opposite of what clearly happened 5 feet in front of him.

Sounds fair to me =)

Also, speaking of blown calls, did you guys see the mess up in the Cards game? Pujols hit a 2-run home run that CLEARLY hit off the top of the wall (you could even see the mark it left on the padding afterwards) they reviewed it to and still called it a home run? Then they won by 2. 2 outcomes of 2 different games affected by the umpiring =(

Enough bickering over Reason 5,123,117 for any Pirates fan to hate the Atlanta Braves with the fiery passion of 1,000,000 suns. Bigger news that shatters the core of all of us here!

Bojangles. Sold. To. Bostonians. Get your chicken soon before they start selling lobster rolls or filling the biscuits with custard or something or *gasp* make the tea unsweet.
