Greetings, sports fans! Are you ready? The World Series starts tonight with the Birds going up against the Beards (yea, I don't know...that's just what I've been seeing all over the place - I'm a hockey fan, so this whole beard thing seems a bit silly to be making such a big deal over.) Anyway - it all starts tonight. Who's got the edge

Blog Photo - Game On! Sports Lineup 10/23/13It's been a while since we had a little recap, so let's get started.....Tim Lincecum signed a new deal with Giants - it's not bad...not great.

Great game for BOSOX fans. All I wanted to say we do not need instant replay. Look at the call on the exchange in this game the ump got it wrong. The other umpires saw it different and got together and all said the same it was not on the exchange so the U2 changed his call. Joe Torre the man drives crazy saying that this happens all the time if the umpires see something different then the one which made the call they give a sign to the one which made the call and get together and talk about it. Really Joe do we have to go through the season and seasons past to show where a call was brown and because no one was on base others seen it was a blown call and not yince was the call change or talked about. We all remember the perfect game which turn out not to be because of Joyce's call and we now every umpire at the game saw the call being called wrong. No one came together so Joe you should have thought because you went onto national TV and made such a foolish call. As for the umpires I have been saying it for years if they were to do this every game and add 2 more umpires for the reagular season down the lines there would be 98% less blown calls standing because someone would catch it and corrections would be made like tonight.
