Yep saw that.  Like that Grienke said that.   

It was really special watching him yesterday.

And that "ball" was horrible in a huge spot.  The robots are coming.  This crew went a long way to ending the most iconic part of their profession.

From the random bits I have seen on ESPN, I thought it was only the gnats that got shitty calls?

HPU had trouble with those Greinke curves that seemed to be catching the bottom of the front of the zone but were caught very low.

I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

I thought that overall the HPU did a very good job. But he missed a few, and they came at critical times.

According to the umpire auditor on Twitter, game 7 was the worst ever. 89% or something on correct ball/strike calls. Pretty much even between the teams, but as we all saw, done of the worst calls both ways were at critical points.

My seats were too high up to judge HPU’s work, but he looked consistent. Only y’all watching TV can say. The replay of the 2-1 pitch to Soto shows HPU missed it, and Greinke’s reaction showed he thought so too. I am beyond bummed about Greinke’s effort being wasted, and the media’s fixation on “it should have been Cole” in the 7th angers me. Hinch made the absolute correct choice if Greinke was coming out. After Eaton grounded out in the 7th, I allowed myself to think “If he gets the next two guys, he may pitch a complete game shutout.” I did not say it to anyone, but maybe my thought alone jinxed him. Ugh.

I keep thinking (against my rational mind) this result was pre-ordained. Certainly was at least bad luck at the worst time.

The view on television for the first 6 innings HPU Wolf was consistent calling pitches that were on the edge of the box as strikes. After the 6th his zone got larger and inconsistent.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

I know why Hinch did what he did, but I really wanted Greinke to stay in.

And at Soto. I was waiting for what I felt was the inevitable misplay.

Watching from the stands, I was sure until the moment it was signaled out that he was going to miss it.

I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, torture of Bud Selig.

It would have been nice, but Harris was the right move. Freaky bad luck.

Harris decision, imo: he trusted Harris in that situation more than Greinke. Longer history with him, excellent season and postseason, had Ked Kendrick in key situation in DC.
