And your comparison is wrong because you're assuming that the ump yelling is what caused the player to not catch the ball. For all you know a fan yelled something and it confused the player. Without the infield fly rule, it'd be bases loaded and one out. With it, we ended up with second and third and TWO outs. Big difference. Not the same number of outs. You're assuming he'd have caught it. He didn't catch it.
Bad call. And even if the player heard "infield fly rule!" that doesn't sound at all like "I got it" or "it's mine" nor is it coming from the right direction in the right voice.
I'm a huge St.Louis fan and that call made me cringe. Whether or not it was what caused him to jump off the ball who knows but it was a bad call among others that game. Probably not game changing but you never know. The bigger effect on the game was how terrible Chipper played. He very well may have lost it for them. Anyways it doesn't matter now... GO REDBIRDS.
I hope everyone watched last nights game. How ****ing awesome was that?!
