For starters, it certainly is a matter of whether he was safe or not. He was safe. He was incorrectly called out. Then, on top of that, he was given a ridiculous explanation for why he was called out. I loathe the Yankees, and I think he was well within his rights to react the way that he did, especially considering it's probably the first time I've ever seen such behavior from him in the last decade and a half. Whether or not he should have been running or when the ball there is what is irrelevant here, because in spite of all that, he was safe and not called such.
