Rob Dibble Mode: On

Cardinals lead the Rockies 4-3 in the 8th inning on Saturday.

Division title hanging in the balance for St. Louis.テつ Wildcard hopes getting a little more precarious with each pitch for Colorado.

Jason Giambi is batting against Adam Wainwright (129 pitches) with runners on 1st and 2nd and a 1-2 count.

Wainwright, who was throwing nasty hooks all night long, saved maybe his best bender for pitch 130. (View the pitch at about 1:12 of this video)

giambilookingYou can’t start calling strikes because the Cardinals are playing for a division title!

You can’t start calling strikes because Adam Wainwright is going for the Cy Young award!

You can’t start calling strikes just because MLB wants Bobby Cox in the playoffs again!

For the love of God how dare you ring up Jason Giambi?

Rob Dibble Mode: Off

Dan Iassogna is a pretty terrible umpire from what I’ve seen.テつ So bad that even Milton Bradley can’t stand him. テつ But Dan Iassogna’s strike zone was equally consistently erratic for both teams last night.テつ Adam Wainwright, the top choice for NL Cy Young, took advantage of the wild zone.テつ Colorado’s Ubaldo Jimenez did not.

Ubaldo Jimenez hung a first pitch slider to Jason LaRue.テつ Adam Wainwright didn’t hang anything to anyone.

I’m as frustrated as any of the Rockies fans and players out there with some of the calls I witnessed in that game.テつ I hated this particular call instantly, and I’m still not a bit fond of it.テつ But I think we’re all going to need to settle down a little bit here and not let the umps get in our heads.

Yes, there are some folks wondering if MLB is setting the Rockies up with bad umpires to help Atlanta pull closer.テつ That makes sense, I guess, since Atlanta can’t even sellout their home playoff games. But it’s on the east coast, so yeah, fix has to be in.

MLB can’t help but send bad umpires to Denver, because MLB umpires are just bad.テつ Inconsistent strike zones are maddening.テつ Yes, I agree with you on that.テつ But it’s the same bad umpiring/inconsistent strike zone it’s been all season, not just this homestand.

By the way, you know what else is maddening?テつ Leaving the lead-off runner stranded at second base 2 or 3 times a game.テつ That’s maddening.
