    I guess it goes back to the old theory that the ump is not going to rule against the guy going for history. Like how during a perfect game the strike zone suddenly becomes what the rule book says it should be.

    and it was funny that uggla said on baseball tonight that he first realized something special was happening when they gave cabrera an error on a play that probably would've been a hit on a regular day.
  4. Anyone hear the announced attendance for the game? Something like 6,000. Florida ought to be ashamed of itself. Fire sell or not, this team is only THREE F'N years removed from a World Series, it's second in a six year span. This team is in the hunt for a Wild Card spot, yet they can only muster 6,000 fans in the heat of the playoff race. That's BULLSHIT. I guess Florida isn't a thriving professional baseball market after all.

    It never has been. Putting teams in Florida was a bad idea from the green light forward.

    Announced attendance was 12,561.

    When I saw the final out for the second time I thought the throw just beat him. Bang-bang call either way.

    It looked like a tie, so he should have been safe.

    Um, wrong. There is no rule on the books saying a tie should go to the runner. A runner is either safe or out, there are no ties.

    Couldn't agree more. After April 1, baseball matters not at all to most Floridians. Going to a regular-season game just doesn't compare to spring training.

    Only 12,561 watched the game. To put it in perspective, had the Marlins been in Kansas City, there probably would have been at least 25,000. Miami does not deserve that franchise.
