The Yankees may have won last night, but I was paying more attention to the debacle in Detroit than anything else. Squawker Jon and I watched the last inning of what should have been Armando Galarraga's perfect game, only to see it taken away by Jim Joyce's botched call.
I think Bud Selig ought to overturn that call. There is a precedent for this - the Pine Tar Game. I wrote a piece for The Faster Times arguing this. And the thing is, George Brett's bat did violate the rules of the game. Yet AL President Lee MacPhail still overturned the homer, citing the spirit of the game.
Anyhow, please read my article, and tell me what you think.
Also, earlier this week I wrote an article for The Faster Times about the silliness of the Florida Marlins selling Roy Halladay perfect game tickets after the fact. I hope Detroit doesn't do that with Galarraga's game!
What do you think? Tell us about it!
