And in the biggest bullshit call in the history of baseball, St. Louis's Allen Craig smashes into our 3rd baseman Will Middlebrooks knocking him down. Because Middlebrooks was in the way Craig intentionally trips over him. 1 BIG PROBLEM! Craig was NOT in the baseline nor was Middlebrooks. Dude never touched home plate!!! St. Louis wins for an obstruction they caused with a self inflicted trip. Apparently the Cardinals need to scam a 'I've fallen and I can't get up!' routine. Screw them, we'll take their a** to the cleaners now.
Not only that but GameGuidedog.com's twitter profile actually exclaimed the same way directly with:
Craig was not in baseline when tripped on Middlebrooks. He caused MB to fall also out of baseline, um...b.s.? #stlcards #RedSox
He then went on the re-tweet other's with the same conclusion about the fact that the baseline was not obstructed, and that Craig actually caused the obstruction and Middlebrook's catch of the ball in the first place.
We just wanted to express our gratitude to a gaming company that stands up for it's fans, and even if a bit rude on the slang, it's still something that should be pondered, especially if the Cardinals take the World Series by one game. That call will go on eternally being debunked by MLB fans everywhere.
Finally, it's a good day when someone immediately posts to Wikipedia covering the call and updating the importance of adjusting the 'would be' rule to fit this scenario. You can see an image for record of history as posted by Amanda C. Dykes here:
Even USA TODAY, Tweeted the following comment:
The #RedSox are not happy: "I'm absolutely shocked a game of this magnitude could be decided on a call like that." http://usat.ly/17nLw1H
Thanks for your comments and re-tweets of this article. I'd like to know what YOU think of this call, and yes, I did write this article in the third person. I AM David J. Garfield, CEO of GameGuidedog.com! :)
