Strange things afoot in the ALCS

If you are reading this on Facebook, click here to read the fully formatted, extra sexafied version (videos/pics etc on this post won't show on facebook).

Goodness gracious me, how about those horrendous, horrific, Halloween special calls last night in the ALCS? How on earth do the umpires get it this badly wrong? Honestly, if the calls made last night were replicated in Irish league baseball, there would be an uproar. So, how is it happening in the Major Leagues?



How bad was this call? The umpire is staring right at it! There is clear daylight! How many exclamation marks is it going to take!!


How about this one, which will go down as one of the all time playoff clanger calls. The Angels catcher tagged both runners as they were off the bag, and yet one was called safe. Horrifically bad call.


In other news, how freakin fat is CC Sabathia? Do the Yankees pay him in donuts and cheeseburgers? I heard that and dismissed it as an urban myth, however, I am rethinking that now.
