    What I'd give to see Donald bunt here...
    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.

    One of the miracles of nature...to get the perfect game, you have to face 7-8-9 in the last inning. Kind of like a favor from the baseball gods.

    Ouch. Bang bang play called safe at 1st. Think the ump was right.

    Nope. Ump screwed it up. There's going to be BIG fallout from this.

    That ump has to have a horrible feeling in the pit of his stomach right now. You know he wasn't trying to screw over anybody.

    What can they do? Maybe change when replays are used? Won't help Galarraga.
