Tough loss, put this one on the bullpen, they didn't get the job done. Let's get the next one.

We might be in first place but, we are not good enough to be given games away. Where were Hicks or Sanchez there in the ninth?

How on earth do you walk Kiermier with Langoria on deck!




Throw him 4 balls.  4 straight balls no less.

They nibble to much...they need to challenge the hitters a bit more.

We had a base open, even if it was 2nd base, this man is a Yankee killer, why on earth did they pitch to him ??

It's obviously not the catcher. Severino didn't have it last time and was squeezed a bit. This ump sucks. He's hot the corner 4 times with a strike that's been called a ball. This ump is getting an F so far. I can't stand it when you have to beat an MLB team and a sh!tty ump.



Wolcott is one of the top 5 ball/strike umpires in the game.  By my count, he's missed one on each team so far, both strikes called balls.  Unfortunately, the one he missed on Severino was in an important spot.




Wolcott had a bad game. I've been watching 162 games of baseball a year for about 30 years and I was a catcher all the way through playing in College. I know what a strike looks like and and as I said last night he missed 4 calls on Severino alone. 


Some may say that Severino only gave up one run so it didn't really matter. I disagree because on 2 occasions it lengthened an inning and made him throw more pitches, more stressful pitches with runners on as well. He could have gotten deeper into a game that the bullpen ended up blowing.


Sucks when the ump blows calls and it wasn't just one. I checked the pitch fx just to see if maybe I was wrong. I wasn't. This is the chart for Severino only.
