To say nothing of the fact that as a batter, you can ask about calls, but you NEVER EVER argue on balls and strikes. You just don't. Regardless of the presence of f-bombs.

Maybe he wanted to spare everyone another temper tantrum from Jim? Kidding, of course.
What an amazing end to this game. You know, as this postseason goes on, it only solidifies this feeling I have that I have witnessed (and am witnessing) one of the greatest seasons of baseball in my lifetime. Just so many "highlight reel" moments in the last week alone. Simply amazing.
The only thing I can think of would be Russ Hodges (I think) calling the Bobby Thompson HR in 1951. "THE GIANTS WIN THE PENNANT! THE GIANTS WIN THE PENNANT!" Heck, they built a whole episode of M*A*S*H around it.
