Also, what you don't get to see from the video of Hernandez home run are the previous two pitches he took. The first one was high and called a strike. Hernandez glanced at the ump in shock but didn't make too big a deal out of it. The next pitch was a foot outside, and again called a strike. Hernandez then politely made a comment to the ump, but they didn't get into it or anything. The next pitch on the outside of the plate, Hernandez jacks into the right field stands. It was classic.
I took that "glance" more like a glare. I'm thinking as Welch stated, Hernandez was recalling how that same location was Ball 4 to Oswalt.
