We Was Robbed

With the Phillies leading 4-3 in the bottom of the ninth, Carlos Lee stepped up to the plate with the bases loaded and one out. Antonio Alfonseca threw him a sinker which he grounded sharply to Jimmy Rollins for the game-ending 6-4-3 double play. But the jaggov first base umpire, Lance Barksdale, obviously more influenced by crowd noise rather than just judging the play for himself, called him safe.

Listen Lance, the Phils have enough problems winning games when we’re trotting out pitchers named J.A. Happ & J.D. Durbin to the mound, shit like this is re-goddamn-diculous.  The ‘Stros ended up winning the game in the bottom of the 13th on a Hunter Pence homer off of Jose Mesa’s first pitch of the game.

Anyway, have a happy July 4th everyone. Except for you Lance Barksdale — you’re a complete asshole.

    I think u forgot to call Barksdale a shitdick. I hope fireworks land on his house and it burns down while he’s at the game tonight.

  2. Matt P says:

    i loved how Harry just ripped into Barksdale. he made it real clear who was ump’ing, saying his name at least twice and i think giving his home address on the air.

  3. GM-Carson says:

    Barksdale is a cock-gobbler. He apologized to Manuel in yesterday’s game for the blown call…not that it fucking matters since it would have been a win but is now a loss. Just imagine if we’re one game out of the playoffs this year…hello death threats!

  4. Astros fan says:

    Stop whining. I’d rehash every bad call that went against the Astros in the last couple of years except I can’t count that high. It was a bad call, there are plenty of them every game, get over it.

  5. Spencer Kyte says:

    Also, if you’re one game out at the end of the season, I’m sure there are more games than this one that you could look back on as “shoulda beens”…

    I gotta second the stop whining sentiment.

  6. George Brett /Pinetar Fan says:

    When a chickenshit “oh yeah, that’s right – that IS a rule” call goes against you and REMOVES a 2-run HR from the books and turns it into an out, then start crying.

    See George Brett – 7/24-83 against Goose Gossage. Famous pinetar incident. As a PS – the appeal was appealed and the HR was upheld – game was finished 25 days later – Royals won 5-4

    Let justice be served Phillies Fans!!

  7. Dennis says:

    Yes, the call was missed – and badly. However, considering the score of the game was 4-4 before that play, and was still 4-4 afterwards, it had no real bearing on the outcome of the game and did not (as previously stated) turn a win into a loss. The out was stolen from the Phillies, not the game.

  8. Dennis says:

    I stand corrected, the tying run did score on that play. Yes the call should have ended the game. I’d be willing to bet this wasn’t the only game that ended incorrectly however.

  9. J Rose says:

    It’s funny because every poster who has called the author a whiner or crybaby would have a coronary if the same thing happened to their team.

    Yes, every team has been robbed of thousands of calls over the history of the franchise, but that doesn’t make an egregious one such as this any easier to digest.

    You’re right, Michael, your guys were robbed and Barksdale is an asshole for ruining your holiday.

    I’m just wondering if this has any connection to the Phillies Sports Illustrated piece this week.
