My fandom prevents me from expressing rational thought about last night’s blown call, instant replay, umpires, et cetera. I’ll just present you with the following.
“We’re analyzing things. Our committee said we need to study it more, maybe have a few more months of study. But from the numbers that I heard, of the controversial tough plays, (the umpires) got something like 98 percent right.”
Reminds me of a classic Furman Bisher quote from the Shoeless Joe Jackson panel at SABR 40:
“Bud Selig is a used car salesman, he’s in over his head.”
