does mlb just not give a sh@t how bad it looks when the officiating constantly changes the outcome of games, yet they wont use the inexspensive and readily available technology to rectify the situation?
baseball is clearly the most poorly officiated of all 4 major american sports
it would be so incredibly easy to have an ump in a booth to review all calls as they happen. calls are pretty cut and dry in baseball, if the ump got it wrong, you rectify the situation as best as you can and move on with the game. if it's one of those calls where it's too close to tell, then the initial call stands. i doubt it'd even add much time to the game since you could basically do away with managers arguing.
ya completely agree. why mlb wont change is a complete mystery, and utterly infuriating.
edit - wow so i went on that long greinke rant then I look at that SD box score... it appears Bass bounced back very nicely after that horrible 1st inning.
am i reading things wrong, or is he actually in line for the W now??
re-edit - omfg so i was right, until the horrible gregerson was allowed to come into the game for SD.
tehy WERE actually in the lead and had Bass lined up for a W, but nooooooooooooo
what a terrible day for my pitchers.
