I am not saying that if the call was not made that the Braves would have won. As a fan I simply would have liked to have seen the full pressure situation with Mccann batting with the bases loaded and one out instead of second and third with two outs. My POV is to let the proverbial "cards" fall where they may.

Isn't is possible (likely?) that the umpire calling infield fly at the last minute is what caused the shortstop to pull away at the last minute, thinking maybe he was being called off? So while the umpire definitely screwed the pooch, I'm not convinced that there would have been bases loaded one out, in absence of the molested canine.
