i was not happy with the annoucers on mlb, hey listen if you do not like the way southerners talk why do try to get all of the yankees living and taking up our jobs to 9 yall can go back home now.
hey you can not even buy a team thet can beat the red sox, and if that does not work you try to build a stadium to help you winRL and you still can and will not win i am not sure but Khave the yankees ever won 13 al tilles in a row , progally not, even you where still buying a team becauseyou are not smart enough to build from your minor leagues like atlanta, and if yankees could ever learn how to be open minded and honest they would admit they would have lost the world sereis if it was not for fan interference in the sorry state of NEW YORK, NEW YORK

YANKEES GO HOME

In light of the two seriously bad calls by umpires in the 7/6/09 game between the Blue Jays and Yankees, can YES direct an article or series on what happens behind the scenes when these things happen? Today, at least two potential runs were shut down by bad calls.

What happens to umpires who make bad calls? Is there any recourse for teams to protest this? Do the umpires get graded on their performance? The first today was Jeter obviously robbed of a stolen base. And what the heck was that called “out” when the second baseman wasn’t even near the base? We laughed when someone recently commented that that was being “in the vicinity of” the base. But that wasn’t funny. The guy was two or three feet off base. That isn’t even anywhere near the vicinity.

Let’s hear it about umpires and the rules that assure that they call clean games.
