I feel for the ump as well. Umpires are human and make mistakes. This one came at the worst possible time. Great ump with over 20 years of quality service will now be remembered as the guy who blew the perfect game. Unfortunate situation all around. I still hate the idea of instant replay. Human error is part of the game.
I agree, on the part of the players anyway. But they shouldn't be punished/rewarded for mistakes made by the officiating. I don't want to see a replay on sh*t like balls and strikes, but rather fair/fall calls and really close safe/out calls.
Dont ya think with something on the line like that, you give the edge to the pitcher (you call them out on a bang bang play regardless if you think they may be safe)?
