No tag was made, he waited until he could clearly see Pujols' foot on home plate before ruling safe. It was the correct call and not an easy one to make.

I've got Blanton, Dempster, and Medlen going today. Should be interesting.

Triple by Frazier hit the top of the home run line and bounced back in play, they stopped the game to put it under review. Thumbs up for doing what's right to get the call correct. ;-D ;-D ;-D Hope to see a trend of this on controversial calls

Double and an error actually. One less ER for Blanton!

A tag was clearly made. Even the camera view from Bucknor's horrible angle shows it. And he didn't call him safe when Pujols touched the plate, he waited a few seconds until Hanigan went for a second tag. You can even see Albert's reaction. He knows he's out, but once Hanigan goes for another tag, since an absurd amount of time passed without any call being made, his eyes light up and he appeals to the ump.

A tag definitely wasn't clearly made. If might have been made, but there was an angle that made it look like he missed it, it was hard to tell and definitely wasn't clear one way or the other.

I think if you're going to contribute, you should at least make it rhyme.
