[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Mariano Rivera Against the Sox : How can you put this up after Slomag's post? What CF camera? You Yankee fans are the kings of the "I don't know what day it is" posts. Why do you all pretend you have no idea what anyone is talking about when you don't want to answer about a specific issue. I'm talking about the Mariano/Lowrie at bat, which weren't even close calls. Stop generalizing and tell us all what a supposedly "objective" Yankee fan thinks. As I've said, no one should get calls because of anything like "not showing up an umpire", or "they earned it". That's BS. Is that fair to the batter? To the opposing team? Umpires should call balls and strikes with no agenda, or find another job. And for you to say they will never eliminate umpires calling balls and strikes is horrifying. Btw, I never met a Yankee fan who EVER wanted anything changed about the umpires in the game, or that wanted instant replay for game changing calls. hmmmm

First off, my initial comment on the CF camera was way before Slomag's, so you need to just calm yourself. Read your own thread from beginning to end before taking your shiny sword to attack.
And I was not talking about any specific at bat. My comment was a generalization of the view point of the main TV cameral which is in CF. I did not see the Lowerie at bat so I cannot and will not comment.
As for Mo getting calls - I am sure he does and as my last comment stated, so do many other pitchers. And the same goes for hitters as well depending on their reputation. If Ted Williams didn't swing at close pitches, many umpires would give him the benefit of the doubt and not call a borderline strike. It has been part of the game since its inception. How exactly do you want to cange this. Should the eye in the sky turn red and the umpires go review the called ball/strike? How do you propose any changes to this. I know one person mentioned something like this.
Your need to try and turn this in the unwaivering favortism that Yanks receive is way off the mark. And your wanting to challenge Yankee fans on this is ridiculous. Because we certainly know that if it was a total reversal of the situation and a Sox player received the benefit of a bad call, you would be defending it and calling out Yankee fans for even questioning it.
Last month of the season and Yanks and Sox are in a virtual tie for first place - baseball as it should be. Relish in the rivalry and respect it as well.
