On a radio show yesterday, I heard an Atlanta fan say that she thought that the initial throwing of debris was OK as it was to show the fans' total disbelief at the call. But apparently there were then announcements at the park saying that if the fans kept throwing debris onto the field, the Braves would have to forfeit the game. And yet, the debris kept coming, according to her.

So were they throwing the garbage as a representative symbol of how their team was playing? One would hope it's the latter.

Alternatively I guess it could be some sort of moron protest of the umpires over the infield fly call but that just seem likes so much convenient and misguided blaming of the messenger. It ain't like the umpires made three errors, ran out of the baselines, left 12 MOB and pitched poorly....

As far as the infield fly call is concerned, spare me. I don't hear any Braves fans complaining about the blown call on Ross' HR. Time to move on from this non story, nothing was taken away from the Braves. They simply were outplayed and lost a ballgame.
