It’s as if the Universe has decreed that a team that gives up a game-winning home run to A-Rod doesn’t deserve to be a winning ball club.

The Universe would be correct, of course, but that doesn’t make it any less painful to watch.

At least we got to behold the Wrath of Tito (and no small amount of f-bombs) unleashed upon home plate asshat umpire no, I definitely meant asshat Dan Iassogna. That was tremendously entertaining (esp. w/Remy and Orsillo working the instant replay and color commentary). I hadn’t realized that Tito even knew the f-word...then I remembered—duh!—the guy spent a couple of years managing in Philly, for chrissake, so he undoubtedly knows a lot of worse things than "F*** you!". Hopefully, he used those words last night, too.

As for that dipshit leaning into the pitch, is that the sort of thing that can be overruled by one of the other umpires (like a check-swing)? Or did I miss the part where we appealed to the rest of the crew only to be shot down? Surely, at least one of them thought that was hinky. Anyways, while I’m not the sort to generally call for this sort of thing, I hope one of our guys drills Mark Ellis for real today. I mean, seeing as he likes it so much...
