    White Sox get lucky. Twice.

    Anyone else catch the end of the White Sox game?

    Bottom of the 9th... play at home. Ball beats the runner by 5 steps and the catcher drops it. Sox tie the game.

    Extra innings. AJ gets caught in a rundown, throws an elbow out and takes a soccer dive and gets an interference call. Instead of 2 outs and a runner on 1st, the Sox have 1st and 3rd with 1 out. Game over. Probably one of the worst umpire calls I've seen in my lifetime.

    I would have seen it if TBS didn't suck and black it out in Ames. Not an ideal win, but I'll take it. I'd rather be lucky than good.

    Don't blame TBS, blame MLB's stupid black out rules.

    I just saw the replay on ESPN. That ump should be suspended. What an absolutely horrible home-cooking call.

    Before the contact was made, Pierwhatshisname was clearly out of the basepath and should have been called out at that point....then HE initiated contact with the defender and the ump inexplicably calls interference. Unreal.

    Not the right calls at all, but when the calls go your team's way, I can't complain.


    I believed in Gene Chizik and all I got was this lousy limited-edition commemorative coin.
