Who's more wrong, The Ump or The Genius?

Bud Selig's decision to let Jim Joyce's call stand - thereby denying Armando Galarraga a perfect game - was the no-brainer of the millennium.

The commissioner simply can't be changing umpiring decisions 12, 18, 24 hours after they happen.

I mean, even a manager who often insists upon batting his pitcher eighth knows that, right?

"If I was Mr. Selig," Tony La Russa says, "in the best interest of the game, the guy got it and I'd give him his perfect game."

Ugh. Never mind.

  1. heh that was pretty funny actually...tony needed to retire a while back...i mean what is he going to do set up managers court so they could all appeal calls they did not like...though i am curious have you ever seen any bad calls in the life of an ump...i thinks this goes into the record books with an asterisk anyway
