    the MLB has denied the Braves protest as expected.

    Perhaps if they hadn't committed 3 errors and had actually scored a run or two after the horrifically bad call maybe it would have been different. I doubt it, but maybe.

    nope, wouldn't have mattered anyways...Joe Torre said they were denying the protest because you can't protest a judgement call

    The call was terrible, but the Braves shit the bed about as bad as you would usually expect from an Ohio team. They deserved to lose.

    3 errors, 12 LOB, and had the tying or winning run at the plate in the 7th, 8th, and 9th.

    But that call was turrrrrible. If that was the correct call according to the wording of the rule, then the rule needs to be rewritten since it was clearly wrong by the spirit of the rule.

    Kozma and Holliday didn't let that ball drop so they could start a double play, which is what the infield fly rule is for.

    The rule blows, and never should have been written. If the defense can turn a pop-up into a double-play, let them. Usually they'd get it, but there would be many interesting plays where the fielders are bluffing and the runners are guessing whether to take off or stay near to bag to avoid being doubled up if it's caught.

    Ground balls become double plays, why not pop-ups? If the pitcher gets a guy to pop it up, and the fielders can turn two, let the defense get both outs. There is no reason to 'protect the runners'.


    p.s. Get rid of the frickin' DH also.

    yep, terrible call.

    changes the entire dynamics of the next hitter.

    McCann up with bases juiced and 1 down vs. up with 2 outs and 1st base empty.

    now, you can pitch around him if you want to face Bourn instead (which they did).

    no way of knowing what would have happened.
    McCann big slow one-armed ass may have just hit into a double play ending the inning anyway.

    agree on the DH but the infield fly rule is a good one
