The Fish should challenge it on 3 grounds:

1. The field deteriorated greatly between the Top and Bottom of the Ninth Inning.
2. The Nationals had no right to complete the frame since the Marlins did not score in the frame.
3. The field was unsafe for the Marlins to play on in the Bottom of the Ninth.

I really hope it is challenged because the umpires screwed us again.

The Nationals had no right to continue!

Marlins need to just forget this one and move on. Challenging it won't do anything. They blew this game in so many ways that it's hard to blame anyone else.

Don't you have to issue the challenge before the game is over?

Just wow.

The umpires didn't screw the Marlins. Tankersly and Julio did.

1. The field did not affect the outcome of the game. The Nationals were playing on the same field
2. Ok?
3. The field did not affect the outcome of the game. The Nations were playing on the same field.

You can protest it in-progress, but a challenge to an umpiring decision can be made with the league afterwards....that is how I have always understood it.

1. It rained for over 30 minutes between the top and bottom of the inning, the field was no where near equal for both sides in the ninth inning.
2. The game could have easily been called and the Marlins would have won.

If we challenged this, I'd laugh at how pathetic we have become.

Why? If it is overturned and the umps made to replay the bottom of the ninth again......it likely would end in a Marlins win.

The field did not affect the outcome. It's not like Hanley fell down going after a grounder or anything.
The game could have been called? Sure, but that's not grounds to challenge a game.

If overturned?

Do you know how hard we would be laughed at?

There's not a chance in hell it'd be overturned.

I once played on a little league team and the coach protested/challenged every game we lost that season. We were pretty bad, so he had a lot of protests/challenges. None got overturned.......while there might be no moral of the story, the bottom line is the league is not overturning this game.

f*** what "others" "will think"

I WANT THIS GAME CHALLENGED! HAD THIS BEEN ANY OTHER f***ING TEAM IN THE LEAGUE, THE GAME WOULD HAVE BEEN CALLED AND EITHER RESUMED BEFORE THE NEXT GAME OR ENDED IN A RAIN SHORTENED GAME!

THE UMPIRES CAN GO TO f***ING HELL ALONG WITH THE f***ING WASHINGTON NATIONALS!

Happy Mother's Day everyone!
