Adam Rosales hit a ball that dinged the railing above the yellow line. A home run would’ve tied the game. After the replay, the umps maintained it was not a home run. The sloppy red dot appears where the ball hit off the railing and ricocheted onto the field. One in a series of ridiculously questionable calls in this A’s/Indians series. Watch it here.
Another call of “I’m tired let’s blow the call and go home” by a team of umps. It may just be one loss, but in this game, Postseason berths are made by winning or losing a single game (see: 2012 Oakland Athletics and Texas Rangers).
Unbelievable and inexcusable. They need to be fined or canned or something.
Friday’s game was Teacher Appreciation Night. A blind student, A.J., nominated his brail teacher. His Braille teacher was selected to be honored pre-game and A.J. was able to accompany her. A.J. gave Ryan Howard a wristband with an inspirational phrase in Braille. Howard immediately put it on and wore it the entire game. A.J. asked Ryan to hit a home run for him. Howard delivered in his very first at bat of the game. When interviewed after the home run A.J. said “I was like, oh my gosh that’s probably for me!”

The live version of Weird Al’s Talking Heads style parody “Dog Eat Dog” sees even more wacky parody! And his David Byrne dancing is spot on.
