Armando Galarraga throws a perfect g---wait what?

Postby Neato Torpedo » Wed Jun 02, 2010 8:53 pm

Galarraga robbed of a perfect game due to the worst blown call I've ever seen. :-t Two outs in the 9th, out by a full step, called safe.

that was brutal, even if hes safe by as much as hes out, call him out, Umps trying to be bigger then the game.

Good job

That was absolutely awful...

Galarraga is one classy guy. I would not have reacted like he did...

OMG. I was just watching the game live. Im tempted to drive 30 mins down to Detroit and find this ump myself. Unreal.

Jim Joyce will never get a good assignment again. Even if it was a close safe, you still call it out in that situation. Pure BS

If this were a soccer match most places in the world Jim Joyce wouldn't even make it to the parking lot alive. 8-o

Unreal. I honestly feel emotionally sorry for Gallaraga. I will admit he also handled the call better than anyone ever expected. He simply smiled and went back to the mound. I also am officially a fan of Miguel Cabrera for how he was jawing with the umpire after the call, thats a true teammate, I was really hoping he would get thrown out so it would start a big thing.

This could have been #21 in baseball history, instead it was just a very good game. Its sad that this could have carried Gallaraga's career and now its just a good game, I really do feel sorry for him.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I never thought CB Bucknor or Joe West could be displaced as the worse umpires but Jim Joyce has thrown his hat into the ring.

Watching the Yankees game,flipped over and I must say the little leagues have better umpiring. Detroit broadcasters,Michael Kay(Yankees game)and Jerry Remy absolutely going off on Jim Joyce and rightfully so. :-t

Oh man. Joyce is going to need protection.

I'm still in shock. After that catch by Jackson I thought that it was in the bag.
