No. I agree that sometimes umps try to be more visible than they should. To say that that is the case here is ludicrous, no matter how bad the call was. I'll guarantee that Joyce would give ten year's salary to have that moment back and get that call right, now that he knows he blew it.

No. If he is out, you call him out. If he is safe, you call him safe. If he is safe and you call him out, then the "perfect game" is worthless.
