Re: The fake strike call
The opposite happened last night. The umpire doing the Yankees-Red Sox game has a very delayed strike call. Manny took a very good pitch on a 3-2 count (I thought it was a strike) and started down to first. The ump punched him out, but Manny didn't realize it until he was halfway to first. He was not very pleased.
