You are saying that a guy hitting a pop up, not picking it up right away, but once he does see it stays in the batters box and never moves is the same as a guy hitting a ball he thinks is out then realizes its not out, and gets a triple?
I see a difference between them. They were both misjudgments. The difference is, once BP figured out he misjudged he busted his butt to get to third. Once EE figured out he misjudged it, he stayed in the batters box and did nothing.
To me there is a difference.
