    Highlight of tonight's game. Takes one in the gut to avoid spilling beer.

    Not to take away from the Astros, but umps are very favorable to Astro pitchers and Nats pitchers can't get a break. Anything near the plate is a strike for Astros, yet Anibal pitches two on the corner...balls...

    Man, one pitch call was a little iffy for Cole, but the game I was watching had some extremely bad calls for the Nats pitchers.
    Huh.

    There was one really bad call by the homeplate ump , the rest were in the realm of normal . Where a catcher sets up , how he frames a pitch , and how far he moves to catch the ball can effect calls . I don't remember any of the iffy calls resulting in an extra *out* for the Astros . Hell , managers use the mistakes by umps to motivate their team , very seldom do they change the outcome of a game .

    Yep! I'm pullin' for the Astros, but I agree with you. That was a terrible call.

    We may be seeing an electronic strike zone sooner than we thought.
