Anyone see the end of the Detroit/Cleveland game? Baseball travesty. Fuel for the pro-replay folks. Wow.

That was just a downright terrible call. With two outs in the ninth inning of a perfect game, the pitcher should get the benefit of the doubt in any close play. This wasn't even a close play, the runner was clearly out.

I don't get how the other umps didn't chime in to overrule that. It wasn't even close. The umps do such a good job most of the time, how is it possible they ALL missed that so bad?

It looks like they cleaned up his wiki page since I went on it last. Right after the game I googled him and it had his life span as "October 3, 1955 - June 2, 2010."

Seriously? Awful call, but that's part of what makes baseball so good.

BTW, classiest response ever by an athlete goes to Galaragga.
