Sabathia: A No-No, or No?

Postby dclark0699 » Sun Aug 31, 2008 10:53 pm

Threw a one-hitter today and now the Brewers are appealing the infield hit.

Video here: http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gam ... NHeadlines

CNBC article http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/26486758/

Looks to me like it should have been an error, but I think it would be lame to retroactively award a no-hitter.

It was a bad call, I think most will agree. Quite a game by CC, though...

i agree that it should have been scored an error BUT the call is very consistent w/the reluctance of most scorers to give an error on even the most routine of plays that are botched by major leaguers

The bad thing is with something like this - and the comments Ryan Howard made a couple days ago
Ryan Howard wrote:"As far as instant replay, I don't know what's going to happen down the line. It's for home runs. That's what it is right now. I don't want to get into all that stuff as far as trying to take instant replay to every aspect of the game. But the safe or out calls are definitely important. Like the one we're focused on right now. It changed the outcome of the game."


The slippery slope is already beginning. I say less than a year before out or safe calls are reviewable....and then who knows what else.

That's the main reason I didn't like this instant replay idea.
If something like that happens in the playoffs, look out!

It was an error in my opinion, but it's a subjective call made by the scorer.

agreed, it looked like a pretty routine play and sabathia just couldn't pick up the ball... he had a ton of time to make the throw had he fielded it cleanly

Wouldn't official scorers take a look at close plays like this a few times on the TV replay before making their final decision?
