Holy Hell! Angel Hernandez must be an Indians fan. How can you get that wrong even after reviewing it?

That was... well.... eh... Ok. Let me play devil's advocate for a moment.

I've seen 3 different camera angels of the home run. It was clearly a home run. But of the three camera angles I've seen, Only one shows you that it hits the railing. The other two, make it look as though the ball dips and hits the wall as it comes back in.

But there is the angle that shows it clearly. It was a home run.

It's a shitty way to get a win.

I hope this brings some changes... The MLB boys better say something about this.

Nothing will happen until the fuddy buddy retires. He's so anti review it's sickening.

Click on the Peter Gammons bit, it is very interesting to see him talk about how Joyce became a sort of pariah among his peers for admitting he fucked up the Galarraga call, where some other umps were even saying Joyce should be banned from the game for admitting he messed up.

So it might not be Bud Selig, but the Ump union.

There was another one in the Angels-Houston game, while closer, was still wrong, AND they got it wrong after the review...

(oh, and yeah, my Angels totally suck... not a great feeling for the season to already be over, they are not going to climb out of this hole, and there are no signs their pitchers have any bit of the skill needed to do that...)

Umps are kinda like Blizz devs... full of themselves, and always right..

So apparently, Angel Hdz didnt overturn the call as a protest to the Instant Replay thing.

So, I guess that makes Angel Hernandez the equivalent of Jeff Kaplan and his hatred for paladins =P

My speakers are dead here at work, so I can't watch video, but if that's the case, then he needs to be removed as an ump.

Well it was Peter Gammons saying that was the impression that he and other media members got. I don't know what Angel actually said.

If it is true though, I agree. An umpire purposely making a bad call for any reason is grounds for removal.

tribe take 2/3 from detroit and tie them for first. Team looks good. I'm rather pleased. Now, if the Rays could get their act together....

son of a bitch Capitals.

At least the Orioles win series despite their starting pitching.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.
