Scroll down to the Jim Tracy ejection. His attempt to cleanly translate what Tracy is saying is awesome. :beerme:

I love how Vin reads Tracy's lips and predicts he's going to get kicked out for what he just said, and bam, the ump throws Tracy out.

That's blinkin' awesome.

I have a feeling MLB preferred the one without the lip reading, so they switched feeds for that clip. This link should have the Scully feed.

Will there be penalties for the Umpires who got the call wrong?

Or did they make the game so beautiful there they are getting a raise?

Why would there be penalties?

you just answered a question with a question.

The best part of the whole thing is Scully pointing out the ridiculousness of the "more replay would slow down the game" argument. Whenever I see a manager out there taking 5 minutes to argue something that could be definitely decided in 30 seconds by a guy in the booth, I can't help but facepalm.

Try clicking the LAD recap at the top, I think that might work as well.

"Jim's gone, so he's spending house money, now".
Love that.

Did Tracy offer to take the umpire to Fuddruckers?

(Any Bob and Tom fans in the house will know what I'm referring to)

"that's blinkin fertilizer" says the Great Scully quoting Jim Tracy.

Vin is great (of course), but he was having a real problem seeing that ball hit the ground. They ran that replay many times and Vin was still saying it was a catch. The 1st replay made it obvious to me that it hit the ground.

I do not blame the umpires for not seeing it in real time (as the great one pointed out). How can they reverse it after discusssing it for over a minute? Either one of them saw it (and it is reversed quickly) or none of them saw it (you quickly wrap up the discussion and move on). Jim Tracy had every right to use that language to that group of blue. Despite getting the call correct in the end... it made no sense how they could overturn it after a looooooonnnnnggggg discussion. Perhaps they saw a replay on the OF scoreboard while taking that long.

With 100% accuracy I can't say it was a trap. There's a chance the glove was under the ball. Even on slow mo replay. Guessing someone agrees with me?

:raiseshand:

I have excellent eyes and that was awfully close, leaning towards a catch. I think it hit the lip of the glove and popped into the pocket from the lip.

If the ball touched the ground at anytime whether it hit the lip or not then it is not a catch.

It looks to me it was a no catch.

Scully made a great point that more often than not the fielder will be upset if the umps made the wrong call in a play like this. Alot of times an umpire will gauge how a fielder or even a runner responded if he has no clue what call to make.
