Another Blown Call

I am sure by now you have all seen the incredibly atrocious call made by umpire Jim Joyce in last nights Indians/Tigers game that cost Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga the 21st perfect game in MLB history.  For those of you that have no idea here it is: 

In the video you can even see the umpire about to make the out call and then he changes his mind.  Even if it was a tie (which usually goes to the runner) the call has to be out.  This of course will bring up the argument of instant replay.  Something that I am 100% for.  The game has become bigger and faster than the naked eye can see.  Every other sport has it and baseball is in dire need of it.  In fact I wrote about it last year

Lets hope this butchered call wakes up Bud Selig.  Screw the old timers and let’s get this game modernized. 

To bad for the Kid that this overshadowed his retirement.  It was a blast watching you Griff!!  See ya in five years!!!!
