Outscoring the defending champs 15-1 in the doubleheader while facing their best pitchers? Check.

That was pretty sick yesterday. I'm not convinced that this is true, but somebody said that Wainwright and Miller might have had the best performance of a double header in major league history according to FIGS (some sabr stat that I've never heard of). They were both outstanding. But, that's a pretty big statement to make.

That was a pretty awful ejection today. Not saying Yadi should be throwing his helmet. And, he definitely shouldn't go berserk like he did after the fact. But, that was a bogus ejection. Not sure how he could have thought Yadi was responding to the call.

Yeah, that was ridiculous. Even watching it live, I thought Yadi was frustrated at himself and that's why he threw the helmet. He starts walking towards the dugout when the ump tossed him. I thought it was a quick trigger on the ump's part. If you watch it again, Yadi almost gives up on it before he just goes off, almost like he thought it wasn't worth it before deciding to give the ump a piece of his mind. I can't ever recall seeing Yadi go off like that. But ultimately, they took 2 of 3 from the champs and still had a shot in the loss, so I've got only positive things to say about this series.
