it's the right call, Middlebrooks had his legs in the runners way, doesn't matter if he ment to do it or not.

I'm not gonna say if it was the right or wrong call could have gone either way however this week has been an absolute blast for me as a pats/bosox fan in regards to officials. You just gotta let the ****ing guys play sometimes.

WOw, ugly way to end a game. That call was judgmental. The bad thing about it is that all game long the Umps had a inconsistent strike zone. I don't know how the Sox players remained so calm. If Umps have a specific strike zone and stick to it, it's all good. When they keep changing their strike zone, that's bad umpiring. The way the game ended and the inconsistent strike zone that seemed against Redsox players all night would leave a bad taste in my mouth. So glad I'm not a Sox fan,lol.

First time legs in the air is natural. Second time putting legs in the air is just blatant obstruction. Great call by the umps.

Oh look, phaggot OP's are bake, baking nicely at 900 degrees.





And LOL @ the phaggot who said the umps are on the take. If anyone was on the take it was Kozma and the 4 or 5 runs he wiped off the board for the cards/put on for the sox.

i roared at the tv. i saw the replay... i kinda give it to the cardinals... but the runnier could have taken the right or left but he had to collide. 60% bad call 40% good call from a non biased perspective

What does that have to do with anything? U gave me a label of being a Sox fan when I have said it numerous times that I'm a Giants fan from Central California. What does me being 32 have to do with you being wrong? Sad

The obstruction call is called whether or not the opposite player intentionally or unintentionally obstructs the runner. Also, the umpire that called the runner safe did so assuming that if he wasn't obstructed he would have scored based on the close play at home. If the runner was still 20 feet away from home plate when the ball got to the catcher he would have been called out.

Face the facts.

3rd baseman lifted his feet up in an attempt to trip the runner, on purpose.


Call was right.

Red Sox lose.

Just think about how the Cardinals without Pete Kozma would already be up 3-0 in the series.

He was 3 feet inside of the basepath. Absolutely no reason for the runner to make contact with Middlebrooks.

Don't watch baseball and don't care who wins, but it looked like the runner tripped over him on purpose/flopped.

So he could just find a defender, run at him, and trip over him for a free base? Seems legit. And since when does anyone run inside the basepath... ever?

The only people defending the call are Cards fans or people that hate the BoSox (ie - Yankee fans).

More like, the only people crying about the call are Red Sox fans. Even Cubs fans agree that it's the right call you remedial fuk lmfao

cool, if that happens make sure to give the MVP trophy to Kozma.

you create your basepath, if you run outside it to run into a defender then you're out for going out of the basepath you created. It's not like Craig got up, ran three feet towards first base and then started running home. It's not that hard to understand.

Please explain to me how Middlebrooks obstructed the runner's basepath. There was absolutely no reason for the runner to make contact with Middlebrooks. None.

You do understand that the nice little lines on a baseball field are not the "base paths"; they are there mainly to determine a fair or foul ball..

base path
nounBASEBALL
noun: base path; plural noun: base paths
1.
the straight-line path from one base to the next, defined by the position of the base runner while a play is being made.


http://l3.yimg.com/bt/api/res/1.2/8Godr4Xlh8Zubdp4ms0NNg--/YXBwaWQ9eW5ld3M7Zmk9ZmlsbDtoPTY2MjtweW9mZj0wO3E9Nz U7dz05NjA-/http://media.zenfs.com/en_us/News/ap_webfeeds/f1e2765c369b5c24410f6a7067009b53.jpg

As you can see, Craig's path to home was impeded by Middlebrooks' feet.. Obstruction was the correct call in this situation


Rule 2.00 (Obstruction) Comment: If a fielder is about to receive a thrown ball and if the ball is in flight directly toward and near enough to the fielder so he must occupy his position to receive the ball he may be considered “in the act of fielding a ball.” It is entirely up to the judgment of the umpire as to whether a fielder is in the act of fielding a ball. After a fielder has made an attempt to field a ball and missed, he can no longer be in the “act of fielding” the ball. For example: an infielder dives at a ground ball and the ball passes him and he continues to lie on the ground and delays the progress of the runner, he very likely has obstructed the runner.

Craig got up and tried to run straight towards home plate, only Middlebrooks was in his way. He didn't go out of his way to come into contact with Middlebrooks.

Yeah I like to take 2 steps to the left before heading towards my target too.

Has this ever been called before in any sort of meaningful situation?

Craig dove back to the bag, got up, and this was the position he was in; hence the base path..
