Incorrect call on replay review in Cleveland

On a double in Cleveland in the ninth which was reviewed, it was kept a double instead of changed to a home run when the ball clearly hit the railing, which is why I ask... like the NHL, why doesn't MLB and the NFL have reviews conducted in New York, which makes all the sense in the world.

Angel Hernandez is an idiot, and leave it at that.

Agree with that and shows that instant replay is NOT the answer that everyone thought it would be.

Thanks

I wish I knew what Hernandez saw. We will never know, because (From Fox News):

Hernandez compounded his gaffe by the way he handled it. According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, Hernandez didn’t allow the media to record his postgame comments. While stipulating that his answers be written in print only, Hernandez said the umpires “didn’t have enough evidence to reverse (the) call,” Slusser reported.

I predict more changes in MLB's replay policy next year.

Anytime Angel or CB Buckner are involved, chaos is prevelant.

Sounds like he made a point of blaming the "TV" they had. I guess it was an old black and white with rabbit ears.

I picture them all looking at the replay on their individual I-phones.

Did anyone ever think that maybe they are not looking at the same video that we are? I agree, that from the video we got to see, it was a HR but I cannot believe that 4 properly trained professionals can make such a bad call (by what we see).

Good point, Oz. This may be ironic... but I bet if this was ANY other umpire, my initial thought would be about the technology - what replay did they see, is the monitor as good as my TV, etc.

But when I saw it was Hernandez, my initial thought was, "Arrogant [email protected]$$ strikes again".

I think 100% of the blame belongs to the designers of the stadium. How hard can it be to build the thing so that if a ball that goes over the fence, it's a home run, if it doesn't, it's in play. You don't need a camera for that. Yellow lines are for taxiways.

Totally agree.

So ... no railings (or for that matter, stairs ... seats ... etc) allowed in the outfield? This didn't hit a WALL above the yellow line (I do agree with you that having walls higher than the yellow line is simply stupid). This hit a hand-rail in the middle of the stairs that lead to the lower seats in that section. The rail was not attached to the fence, it was attached to the stairs.

Hmmmm, I did notice it was raining.

I am SURE that the rain has nothing to do with Angel's decision.
