It was horrible...2nd time this year the Rays have had a major horrible call in a critical situation.

The first was against Baltimore when we were rallying in the 9th and they said Longoria passed Zobrist on the base paths when a) he wasn't close and b) not a single umpire had a view.

In THIS case, runners would have been on 1st and 2nd and Longoria (who was 3 for 3) was stepping up.

Longoria ran right next to Zobrist and there was no definitive angle, so I don't know how you can say he wasn't close.

There was another angle focused on Longoria from the outfield that followed him around 1st rounding to second...Zobrist never appeared in a single frame.

Beyond that, no a single umpire had the ability to make that call as they were all in front of the that call and the one who actually made the call was looking towards left center field.

I watched it live and Joe Nathan shook his head and said "WOW" when Pierzynski came up and hugged him after the call. It was a bad call and the umpire admitted to blowing the call after he saw the replay.

Actually he defended the call right after the game (he said the Pierzynski caught it quick and that "made it look worse than it was")...then sometime later during the press conferences, he said he would have called it differently if he had the chance again.

Problem is, what does an apology matter now? You can't make those kind of mistakes in a crucial situation. And yeah, we may only be a few games into the season...but the AL East is going to likely be decided by less than 3-4 games.

I would never be the type to suggest this, but I may be okay with entertaining the idea of a laser strike zone and just have the backplate umpire be responsible for field calls. I know it doesn't happen enough to warrant that much, but if this game was in the postseason...it would really be a huge deal. Since it is so few games in, MLB won't care.

From the outfield...as in at an angle? Fwiw the strike call was bad, although I do believe it wasn't as horrible as it looked because it really dropped off at the end.

Yes, as in if you were the right fielder and could see them on the same plane. The perfect angle for calling that, really.

As far as the strike, forgive me...but that is just crazy. Not only was it low before it broke and proceeded to hit the mitt on the ground, but it was in the other batters box. At no point was it near a strike.

That is funny you mention that. Someone on the ESPN conversation page said "well, at least he will be away from behind the plate for tonight's game and on 3rd base or left field where he can't screw anything up."

I said..."oh really, ask a Braves fan if they would agree with you."

Where did I say it was near being a strike? All I said was that it broke late, so even though it crossed low and outside, it was not skimming the dirt as it appeared.

But yeah. We don't need instant replay in baseball at all. The crap that gets blown in major league games is an embarrassment to baseball. And these umpires don't get in trouble in public. And they just keep collecting a paycheck

Cost me 1 point in fantasy for not getting the walk, other than that I'm glad the Rays lost.
