    They're not going to support any sort of cap. But you're right we have to wonder if they'd accept a soft cap, but then again what the hell would even be the effect a soft cap would have? Probably none at all.

      The same thing the luxury tax does now I figure. Little to nothing.

          It may have been the techniaclly correct call according to the rules, but you know **** well that 99% of the time, an umpire would call that an out regardless. I've seen shortstops make the turn 3 feet away from the bag and still get the call.

          It's the timing that makes it suspect. You don't make that call late in a playoff game when you haven't made a similar one all year.

          Edit: And it doesn't help when the MLB umpires act like the neighborhood call doesn't exist.
          “There is no such thing as the neighborhood play,” said Rich Garcia, a Major League Baseball umpire supervisor for seven years after spending 25 years in blue. “You either touch the base or you don’t.”
          Then MLB umpires must be blind as a bat, because the neighborhood call is made routinely. And anyone who's seen more than a handful of baseball games knows it, too. Denying the existence of it makes it seem like they believe the fans are just ignorant fools. Same thing as the nearly automatic calls on tag plays depending on where the ball is relative to the runner (ie, if the glove is down in front, it's an auto out regardless of if the tag's made; if the tag is made on the back or lower, the call will almost always be safe even if the runner wasn't on base yet).

              Tim McCarver making Jeter throwing Abreu out sound like brain surgery is equally pathetic.

                Hunter still swings at absolute garbage. And they blow bases loaded with 1 out in extra innings.

                    Mathis should have been pinch ran for, and Willitis would have easily scored on that play to Texeira.

                      Can't run for Mathis if your other catcher is already out of the game.

                          My bad, looks like Anaheim is carrying three catchers so they could've run for Mathis.

                            And what's the whole point of having three catchers if you're not going to run for the second in that situation? It's the entire point of having three catchers!

                              I guess that's why you don't pinch run for Mathis.

                                If that outfielder would have hit Jeter on a cutoff, he single handedly would have prevented that run from scoring. Buck and McCarver told me so.
