    If you watch the replay from today, the ump wasn't even looking at the runner. He saw it out of the corner of his eye. That's a call that, imo, you don't make there. That's beyond 'tickytack'.
    Especially not as the last out of one run game, with runners in scoring position, in a game September game between two playoff contenders.

    The umpires union will say he made the right call, which technically, he did, but he probably will get reprimanded behind closed doors, and have to work harder to stay a major league ump.

    The call to end the Minnesota game was very poor judgment on the ump's part to interpret that as helping by the coach.

    That's my take as well.

    I was just telling my 8.9 month pregnant wife how I am torn in what I want to see in the playoffs, God willing. I'd hate to see them matchup vs Philly in round 1, but it would make it much easier for me to get to Philly for Game 3 than Cincy for Game 1/2.

    Florida is holding on to a 2-0 lead in the top of the 7th against Philadelphia. They do have two runners on with one out, threatening to add on.

    Meanwhile, Atlanta and Pittsburgh are tied 1-1 in the 5th.

    I thought the rule was that if you made contact with the base coach you are automatically out.. it doesn't matter if the umpire deems it as helping or not. Kind of one of those a rule is a rule things like when Mattingly accidentally made two trips to the mound in one go earlier this year and had to take his closer out

    Here is the rule as it reads...

    From the Major League Rule Book, 7.09 (h)

    (h) In the judgment of the umpire, the base coach at third base, or first base, by touching
    or holding the runner, physically assists him in returning to or leaving third base
