F%%K THE POLICE
As a Braves fan I'm used to October heartache. Outside of '95 (and frankly '91) every postseason has ended in heartbreak and sadness. I still hate Jim Leyritz with the heat of a thousand suns.
But just when I thought October couldn't get any MORE painful, MLB manages to find a way.
First, they reduce a 162 game season to a one game playoff. The Braves win the third most games in the NL and they have to play a one game playoff. They proceed to play VERY poorly. So far we are holding to form.
Then - in one of the worst rulings I can remember since Jim Joyce - the LF ump misapplies the infield fly rule.
And Selig, Torre and the cowards at MLB will never overturn it on protest.
I bet Matt Ryan breaks his leg on Sunday to complete the month of suck.
