"Sometimes you just have to make the call---right or wrong."

I disagree. What is this ego thing in the world of officiating, that people feel that an official HAS to make a call if he hasn't seen enough information for him to make a clear decision. Get the dang thing right. When one official looks bad in a contest ,they all look bad.

"What does this PU do if he's BU and gets screened on a swipe tag at 2B?
(Remembrances of a WS swipe tag on a runner going to 2B.....)
Does he turn to his PU for help............?????"

Of course not but, if he did , What is the big deal?

Are we really that macho driven that admitting error, is above and beyond us. Im sorry, Im not from that school.
