      seriously,

      What the hell does he even do during the season? Maybe next season the winner of the home run derby will get home field advantage in the wild card round, ******* old coot.

I think you're missing the point entirely actually, there is no controversy to this call whatsoever, he was out by a country mile, everybody that watches the tape can see that, even the umpire that made the call agreed with that.

        Overturning this call would not only have zero impact on the game, but it would also give the kid a perfect game, something that he, in all likelyhood, will never get close to achieving again in his career.

        Another thing, how the **** does Jim Joyce make that call with 1 out in the ninth? How do you call somebody that "close" safe when the pitchers went 8 perfect innings? Yeah Jim Joyce has handled the entire situation with class and respect, but the fact that he made that call should follow him around for the rest of his career. And rightfully so, that was just a joke of a call, god I can't believe that happened. /rant
        hmmm.... I see your point. But here's my thinking and my argument, how can you prioritize one game over another.

        such as, I don't think Bud Selig can be like "oh ok, it's just one game that probably has no meaning"

        Every game should have equal importance (regular season and postseason alike) in which commissioners and etc. should have no business affecting.

          He counts his $18 million salary and laughs maniacally.

          (I'm just guessing)

          • The NFL has different rules for playoff games and regular season and noone has made a big stink about that.

              Same with the NHL. Shame on Bud for taking the easy way out.

                The easy way out would be to overrule it. That would shut everyone up about the call and deflect criticism away from MLB. Bud took the much more difficult route...but the better one.

                • The best route would be full instant replay immediately.

                    Wish him well. Very tough to come back from two surgeries like that.

                      • There is actually a pretty big history of MLB changing outcomes of games: taking away perfect games, the George Brett pinetar game, etc.

                        If they don't fix this, then Bud Selig is incompetent.

                          No, but the 5th umpire thing I said earlier.

                              • Funny thing is, Galarraga's perfect game will be remembered far longer than Braden's or Halladay's. Would the official record agreeing be nice? Sure. Is it necessary? Not really, since those kinds of accomplishments always mean the most to the fans anyway.

                                Not saying that Selig couldn't have overturned the ruling without much problem down the road, but I don't think the difference made is huge.
