When Pittsburgh teams get good their fans begin hating everyone and everything.

Well, at least that's my experience.

1992. Sid Freakin' Bream. That was the last time the Pirates ever made the playoffs. To be fair I also heap hatred on Barry Bonds for that catastrophe.

Ugh. Rip my heart out some more, why don't you.

Now, can we discuss the imminent local emergency, i.e. the sale of Bojangles to Bostonians?

Didn't Tim Wakefield play on that Pirates team?

He split that season between AAA (Pirates affiliate was Buffalo at the time) and Pittsburgh. He started 13 games for the Buccos that season and in his MLB debut threw a complete game against the Cards, striking out 10 men. He posted an 8-1 record on the season with a 2.15 ERA. IIRC he probably would have been named NLCS MVP had the Pirates won.

Fun fact - he's also a Carolina Mudcats alumnus.

If Atlanta didn't have to share their division with Philadelphia they would be division leaders.

I don't remember '92, but '95 I remember like yesterday even though I was in second grade, and since the clinching game was on a weekend night I could stay up and watch it. One of the best moments of my childhood.

Interestingly enough, between the Hawks, Falcons, Flames/Thrashers, the '95 Braves are the only team in the bunch to bring a championship to Atlanta. '96 and '99 still hurt somewhat.

welcome to the personal H*ll of Blue Jays fans for the majority of the past decade. (granted not the past 2 years when we've been pretty bad)

So many years when as the 3rd best team in the AL East, the Jays would have been in first in either of the other two divisions.

I honestly wish that MLB would get rid of the divisional setup for that reason. The Rays are out of it because they can't spend the GDP of Turkmenistan on payroll like the Red Sox and Yankees can. Yet if it were strictly a "league table" setup rather then this divisional crap they'd be right there in a fight with Anaheim and Detroit for the last playoff spot.

PS: I'm not even a Rays fan, my AL team is the Red Sox.

PPS: Yes, I know, that would make the battle for the last NL slot more difficult as well since in addition to Pittsburgh, St Louis, and Milwaukee, you'd be adding Arizona to that mix.

“Having been the beneficiary of calls like this and having been on the other end in my experience as a player and as a manager, I have felt that this has always been a part of our game. As a member of the Commissioner’s Special Committee for On-Field Matters, I have heard many discussions on umpiring and technology over the past two years, including both the pros and the cons of expanding replay. However, most in the game recognize that the human element always will be part of baseball and instant replay can never replace all judgment calls by umpires. Obviously, a play like this is going to spark a lot of conversation, and we will continue to consider all viewpoints in our ongoing discussions regarding officiating in baseball.

“We expect the best from our umpires, and an umpire would tell you he expects the best of himself. We have to continue to strive for accuracy, consistency and professionalism day in and day out.
I guess the short version of that is "BLAH BLAH BLAH We don't care if our game are consistently blown by bad officiating because we are never going to bring in replay because we're too traditional."

"Consistently" seems like quite the exaggeration. A bad call doesn't happen very often, and it's almost non-existent in terms of "deciding the game."

I don't know how I feel about instant replay, but in order to make a change, I would think the actual facts would be necessary and not hyperbole.

And for any soccer fans out there, I can't say that the Man U drubbing of the MLS AllStars did anything but embarrass that league last night.

Heading to the Guadalajara/Juventus game in a couple hours. My high school soccer coach is actually an MLS ref, and he's the head ref for the game tonight... So if any of y'all are watching, look for him...

Will today/yesterday's actions shut off the running faucet of LOLs, or will the media keep digging and exposing more of the dirt/idiocy that went down over in Chapel Hill?

It sucks for the true fans over there that have ties to the university and not just the sports programs. I feel no sympathy for the folks steadfastly defending Davis/Blake/etc though.

Every year in baseball there's a blown call (And I as a Braves fan admits that call should not have been made), and it brings up the replay talk.

I really don't know what to think of replay myself, it's something I just have no opinion about, but I think if it were to be used, it should be like in the NFL. Give the manager one or two challenges a game and then let everything else play out. Don't challenge everything, like every pitch that may/may not be a strike.

Even with replay, bad calls are going to happen, that's sports for you.

I work with UNC alumni and I can tell you, there are an awful lot who could give a rat's *** about the football program and are extremely unhappy about the cloud over the university.

I don't want balls and strikes replayed, that is so variable. But out or safe should get a replay if the coach challenges it.

This, and I'd like to see it where only one call per team per game can be challenged.

Should have happened after the choke against Ghana last year, but about time. I honestly think that US team could have reached the semis even with their flaws.

I think the NFL got it perfect, and other sports leagues should adoipt a similar system of challenges.

Also, completley off topic but, I was talking with my roomate about the 19 inning ATL//PIT game and he said that baseball games were too long and should be shortened, so I asked him how he planned on doing that and he said "Well, in hockey if it's tied at the end of the game they do a shoot out, what about if in baseball if it's tied after 9 innings they did a sudden death home run derby"

thought lol? I think it'd actually be pretty fun =)
