Re: Armando Galarraga perfect through 7
It was a mistake. It happens. I don't think the ump is any happier about it than anyone else. That play gets missed by umps ALL THE TIME. Joyce just happens to have missed it on the last out of a perfect game. Hitters miss pitches. Pitchers leave the ball up. Umps miss calls. It was a bad call. But I lean towards what Rick said. I think he was trying so hard to not be biased, that he screwed it up.
