    I know. It was just that it was an Astros home game...that was about an hour from Chicago and I think the day after a Cubs day off/the Astros had to travel far. It basically was taking an unplayable Astros home game and giving the Cubs an extra home game.

    And then Z no hit them.

    Also, out of 28 venues other than Houston and Chicago (27 if we include Comiskey as well), Selig just so happened to "randomly" pick Miller Park...

      he's been good, but has a .453 BABIP. if that normalizes, he won't hit over .250 this year.

      • Burrell signed a minor league deal with the San Francisco Giants after being released by Tampa Bay last month and currently is playing for Triple-A Fresno in the Pacific Coast League.

        Ibanez > Burrell.

        • It has always been more than normal...he will hit over 290 on the year... He will however be above 300 at the all star break...so, all star?

            He will always have a ridiculous, David Wright esque BABIP.

              The sabr gods will start striking down his hits from the sky soon.

                  .453 is way higher than it's ever been and in general is really high, but regardless he won't make the all-star game. there are so many other hyped up rookies stealing the spotlight that he's not getting a lot of love. his hr and rbi numbers don't help his case much either.

                    If they played it anywhere else, they would have played in front of a crowd of hundreds and the Astros would have lost money in the situation. This year the Blue Jays are playing a home game in Philly against Philly. And I'm sure they aren't terribly upset because they just got 3 sell outs compared to the empty crowd they normally play in front of.

                        Anyone ever heard of Brian Jacques' Redwall series? The Badger lords in those novels enter into something called the "Bloodwrath" when they fight...Whenever a Cubs' fan calls Miller Park "Wrigley North," I go into bloodwrath.

                          I don't think sbh is getting exactly what his BABIP normalizing means, as the most likely thing would be him having a .360 or so BABIP the rest of his way, which isn't exactly normalizing.

                          Someone suggested this on a Detroit Sports station, but why can't Selig rule the hit an umpire's error, and still give the perfect game to Armando and making the last at bat still official?

                            Yes, well they could have played the game at Wrigley, Comiskey, or I'm sure a bunch of other places and still made money. The point is that he decided to have them play at the park of the team owned by his old buddies.

                            Maybe if the Jays were hosting the Phillies at Miller Park it would be different.

                            • Any excuse Selig makes about that last out is ****. He's the commisioner, switching the call would not alter how the game turned out in any way, and the worst case scenario is he has a few "purists" on his ass for a couple weeks. It was a PERFECT game, make the change Bud.

                              Do people really think replay would slow the game down any longer than it already is when a couple of geezer managers shuffle onto the field to bark at an ump for 10 minutes?
