Love hearing Reynolds' "telling it like it is". Unfortnunately, I fear his strike zone will be incredibly big tonight.

Isn't the ump who got the call right initially at the plate tonight? Perhaps, he will take pity on us tonight, give Zach a head to toes strike zone. He's going to need it.

Tune into O's Xtra at 6:30 p.m. on MASN2 and watch Mark Reynolds go on the verbal attack after being tossed from last night's game.

I hope this makes its way onto MASN's site. Must see tv.

The interview should come with a counter on a corner of the screen that adds up the amount of his pending fine with each comment.

It would be nice to see the Governor's or Mayor's office request a review by MLB of the umpiring - really any sort of ridiculous sounding complaint - that provokes a response from MLB. Any response would likely have to acknowledge in some form that the Os were jobbed. Last night was a real kick in the groin - multiple, game-impacting, playoff impacting, erroneous calls (including a reversal and an improper rejection) screwing the Os.

At any rate, complaining of this nature is not going to reverse any poor calls already made, but you never know whether this complaining could lead to a beneficial call later.

The thing that bugs the hell out of me is, outside of questions over home run vs. ground rule double (even before replay review), can anyone remember the last time the umps REVERSED a call? I've been watching/listening to/following basball for the better part my 34 years and I cannot think of a time where a situation like this went down.

It my memory serves correctly, it happened to Mark Reynolds last year against the Red Sox.

Remember gme 162?

Jacoby Ellsbury was initially called out at first cause the throw beat him. Mark Reynolds didnt have possession and the ball was rolling up his arm as Ellsbury crossed the bag.

The play was overturned. Reynolds and Showalter handled that incident like a man, too.

That's the one I was thinking of, I knew the Red Sox were involved somehow.

I'll say this. Two days later, I am proud of these guys. Friday's game could have extended our frustration into the weekend and we could have easily been swept. Instead, we came out fighting and took the next two, showing that we cannot be held down. Great job guys.

That said, is there any update to this story? Any word from the league? That was the most absurd thing I have ever seen. Like Mark said, how can he blow a call right in front of him and yet see something (wrongly) 100 feet away? Ridiculous!
