    Man. I'm so glad that we have the human element in the game. Adding replay will clearly slow the game down -- unlike this mess of arguments and finger point.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    It's the right call, but MM is livid...and rightfully so.

    Yeah, God forbid they get the call right.

    Only a loser wants to catch a break with a bad call....

    I say toss him and suspend for 7 games. He needs to learn to respect the umpires final decision.

    Uh oh. Papi slid into home even thought there was no play. That surely isn't the right way to play.

    David Ortiz scoring from first is spectacular.

    It's obviously the right call and MM knows that too. Doesn't mean he shouldn't go out and have his say...Just like Sox skipper.
