    I like Galarraga's response...he just smiled...no arguing or pouting.

    Really classy.

    I initially thought it was close. After a few more viewings I think he was clearly out.

    I watched it live, and the replay was from several different angles. To me, it looked like the throw beat the runner on one replay by a full stride.

    The only question I had was: Did he bobble the ball?

    I couldn't tell from the replay that I saw on MLB.com, but it looked like there was some glove movement that might have been bobbling.

    I'd need to see the front side of the replay.

    Rule #1 - Umpires are never wrong.
    Rule #2 - When in doubt, refer to Rule #1.
