Blown Call In Detroit

Armando Galarraga pitched a near perfect game last night. Perfect until this blown call on a ground ball. This should have been a routine 3-1 ground out but no--an ump screwed up big time.
This blown call is really bad. Now what I don't understand is why the umpires don't get together and help each other, like refs in every other sport.

I'm beating up You Tube today between the blogs--here are the pros--note the baffled commentary...



Here is a video from someone in the stands. You can clearly see here that all the umpires are just standing around, even though they know their colleague just totally missed the call, instead of running over and saying, "Well, actually, Jim, he was out."



Word today is that commish Bud Selig is not reversing or doing anything with this horrible, horrible call. Gack!
