Did anyone else notice last night that home plate umpire Joe Brinkman had to be checked by the Braves training staff around the third inning because he was feeling light headed? 

Well, Joe decided he was fine and stayed in the game, but after that point his calls were questionable at best.  I am not blaming him for the Phils loss, but there were more than a few balls that he called strikes that killed Phillie rallies. 

We need our players to step up and be clutch, but the umps need to cooperate as well if we are to earn this wild card berth.
