As a baseball lover I try not to bring up every error with the MLB’s new instant replay system. Even though analysis has shown it to be relatively successful, negative plays will always generate more scratch (such is the way of the world). That said, this botch by the umpires is a little too much to ignore. Even with the help of replay, this crew couldn’t get the count straight and it eventually cost the batter. Come on, blue.
See if the umpires can get it right in Minnesota’s game today and check out ScoreBig for tickets to every game on this years Twins schedule.
