  • Best episode in this season!

    I'm usually not a fan of guest stars appearing on the show as themselves but this was an exception. This episode did not let me down in terms of jokes and plot development. Most of the humor was in the form of great writing, something that new sitcoms seem to lack. The third act was very random and had the best scenes in it. I liked the scene where Steve Sax was arrested and then accused for all the murders in New York City. The thrid act was so random because the baseball players all succomb to very unusual injuries. Homer barely wins the game for the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant when the ball strikes his head and then the game ends. This episode is a must-see for any Simpsons-fan.
