I agree with most of Pete's comments. Umpires will disagree on when we should make the "expected call" contrary to what we saw, but I'd think we would all agree that an "anticipated call" does not imply an "expected call". Participants and coaches have an "expected call" on the basis of what seemed to happen, not what should have happened. Sometimes these are the same, but not always.

It seems to me that "expected calls" come when a runner or fielder screwed up but looked like he was behaving routinely, not when something strange and easily noticable happens. Do you agree?
