Really a dumb play by Posey throwing a rocket to 1st with Affeldt covering and not really in good position.
Scott Hairston knocked Posey off balance as he threw the ball when he slid into home plate.

If you're gonna run halfway into the outfield and throw off the center fielder, just make the catch plz
I didn't see it but theres no way that it's a SS's ball if the CF can catch it.
No one can call off the CF.
If he is there it's his ball. Period.
Agree on it being the center fielder's ball but I have a hard time putting the blame on him when Tejada was literally 2 steps away from Nieuguy in the outfield and about 3 from the ball when it dropped. If you're going to run all the way out there and try to make the awkward running from behind catch when the CF can get there in time, you might as well finish it off and count your lucky stars your bonehead move didn't cost your team the lead. It was just ugly inexperience all around, not something you would have been in the Reyes/Beltran days.
