Can't say I know much about Joe Buck, but seeing him tonight I couldn't help but think he looks like one of those Thunderbirds puppets.

Which isn't allowable, either, for the same reason: You cannot protest a game over a judgment call. However, Torre told each manager before Game 1 that a "rules check" was allowed, so Martinez used that to protest and force officials to look a second time at the play.

One of my all-time favourite baseball moments was when I was listening to a game on armed forces radio and Gil Hodges, managing the Mets, went to the mound a second time in an inning after the opposing team put in a pinch hitter. Took them about forever to dig out a rule book and find where it said that was allowed. You know he did it just because he knew the rule and wanted to jerk them around.

Torre said later that the delay shouldn’t have been so long. He said people in his box had tried to call people in the league offices and couldn’t reach people. He thought the umpires, who were trying to oblige Martinez’s request for a rules check, had similar issues.

= = = = = = = = =

They were too busy or unavailable during Game 6?

 

One other thing that struck me about that play was how quickly Turner got up the baseline.  I knew he was fast but that was incredible.

 
He's also smart. The Giants need a new manager...

And the delay by the umpires on a judgement call for interference that isn’t even reviewable was brutal. I‘ve about had it with reviews, pretty much every SB attempt ends in one, frame by frame under magnification  to determine if a loose glove string possibly grazed a stray hair on the runner’s arm prior to the tip of his oven mitt touching the bag. There needs to be a time limit for the umps and a limited amount of circumstances review is allowed for.
 

I shouted at the TV that they should just start playing because it's not reviewable then it went to review so Justine thinks I know shit about anything now.

They said later that they were going to re-read the rule to make sure they had it right; the ump who made the call can overturn himself if he needs to, after re-reading the book. So I think the crew chief wanted to give him that chance since it was clearly such a bullshit call. But it isn't reviewable, and they went to the review headsets, so once they were there, the  conversation was probably now "if we reverse the call, Houston will have a Very Good Reason to shoot us where we stand. So they probably talked about that and candlesticks for a while then decided they'd be better off letting the call stand.

While I can understand your frustration I have to take issue with this.  Other than start time there should be absolutely no clocks in baseball.

Looking forward to Max and Zack and 14 relievers. Really hoping for a classic tight game that isn’t decided until the last pitch!
If Scherzer’s feeling right, I have to give the edge to the Nats, what with Houston facing Home Field Disadvantage and all. 
 
Well, he had that start back in 9th grade that was pretty big.
