Found June 15, 2013 on Bush League Chronicle:
PLAYERS: Darwin Barney
TEAMS: Chicago Cubs

Your browser does not support iframes.Mass confusion was the theme in the top of the ninth inning during the Cubs win over the Mets Saturday afternoon.Chicago had the bases loaded with no outs when Darwin Barney struck a ball to shallow center field. Mets center fielder Juan Lagares came charging in and appeared to make a shoestring catch to take away a hit from Barney. But wait.The umpires did not see things that way and it set the table for the incredibly awkward events that immediately ensued. Sit back and watch the whole mess unfold as players, coaches, and the umpires try and make sense of it all.Eventually, the umpires upheld the ruling that Lagares did not catch the baseball and thus, a forceout at second was made when Lagares rifled the ball back toward the infield.Leave it to the Cubs to be involved with such a folly.

  • Are the umpires this year, intentionally trying to get instant replay to take over their jobs?

Living the dream, with Ian Stewart

Twitter is easily my favorite social media site. It’s the best place to get news and cool stories while allowing for just enough broadcasting that you actually get news from outside your chosen cone if you engage with it. Still, I usually hate twitter controversies. Bill Simmons is “angry” with ESPN again? Boo. Football players aren’t, en masse, erudite and inspiring thinkers...

Being a Fan

Today, of course, is Fathers’ Day, and as such I had a good time with the family and especially with my son.  The wife will give me something else later (ha!) but we just finished watching Monsters, Inc., and playing Stratego and some card games.  It was very relaxing.  It’s almost as if the Cubs hadn’t lost a game and our world hadn’t suddenly ended. That post, surprisingly...
