More instant replay insanity
Less than 2 minutes ago, Cord Phelps of the Indians hit an RBI single to make the Rockies/Indians game a 1 run affair in the 8th.
He stretched it to a double but was called out to end the inning, killing the rally.
Before Indians manager Manny Acta was done running from the dugout to the umpire to argue the play, a replay was shown that the call was blown.
So an argument ensued, slowing down the game. But you can't use the Instant Replay to correct the call... because if you did that, then the game would move faster and calls would be right.
The game is starting up again.
I wrote a whole blog post in the space of the argument.
