Yet another ridiculous call tonite in a playoff deciding game. How can an umpire 2 ft away miss a call that was not even close. Im talking about bourne stealing 3rd before ugla hits a 2 run shot. Was that the deciding factor of the game probably not missed oppurtunities and the inability of the braves closers is what cost them this game. But with replay in every other major sport why cant these too proud umpires who wont ask for help, will miss a call and know it dont have someone looking over their shoulders. I agree they get it right most of the time but is that good enough millions and millions of dollars spent on this sport and to have it decided by an ever aging and somewhat over the hill umpire staff is crazy. It works every where else bring replay to the MLB!!!!!!!

But then I kept thinking, he steals third safely, Uggla wouldn't have hit a homer. Maybe just a ground out to short or a pop up. Everything affects everything else. The domino theory -- probably even happens if you line up lugnuts and then push over the first one. Then again, it's easy for me to say, because I'm a Phillies fan!
