    Yes, they should both be out.

    Just give me the run he took away for the awful call on Swisher "leaving early" on the tag up and we'll call it even

    what an idiot umpire and the fact he didn't over turn his call makes him more of an idiot.

    It's just the latest incident in the biggest ongoing officiating travesty in the history of baseball.

    We had better umpiring in the scrubby amateur senior leagues.

    it used to be that umps in the post-season were chosen based on merit.

    the new CBA calls for a rotation.

    one of the umps in the angels-red sox series was chosen as the worst in the AL by the ballplayers this year.

    it sucks.

    It's way past time for Bud Selig to go.

    when I was fifteen and an umpire I still wouldn't have made that bad of a call.

    Jorge should have come home on Cano's hit anyway. If there were baserunning errors Posada would have gotten 2 of them in that inning
