because today the most exciting player in baseball, Little League Puig
crashed into the right field wall at Wrigley, the ball bounced off the padding
and he caught it
and the first base umpire called it an out.
thank God the other umps huddled up after being yelled at by the Cubs
and they said yeah no, it’s a foul ball.
there should be no huddle.
if the Cubs are gonna build a three hundred million dollar scoreboard, show it on that thing.
let the umps watch it with everyone else. just like we’re doing now.
“but tony this will extend games by 20 minutes a game!”
IT’S BASEBALL IF YOU’RE IN SOME CRAZY HURRY, GO HOME WE DONT WANT YOU
take your time, get the call right, use omg modern day technology.
there are so few things we can get right the first time, moments after it occurred.
since when did we become the country who consciously avoided doing what it took to be correct?
this way, when yasiel puig nearly kills himself bouncing around a 100-year-old brick stadium
when you tell your friend, omg did you see that catch?
they’re really seeing a great play. and not a bad call.
