    In my opinion, that pitch [high and inside] gave way to the "subjective strike zone" used to this day by umpires throughout baseball.
    A strike should be called a strike and a ball should be called a ball. Porkers from coast to coast demonstrate their incompetence and/or dishonesty every night by ignoring this.
    Gamblers tout umpires when figuring the over/under... and Pud Selig sits and watches.
    Disgraceful.
    Lets not hinge the game on one call. We all have seen that last pitch from the same camera angle, from behind the batter, no way to really tell if it was high. Even if it was a bit high, never heard any complaints from the the other team after the game. It could have been a little high but certainly not a blatant bad call. A complaint by the batter Mitchell but......whats new, a hitter complaining about a call and he's more likely to complain since he's the last out of the perfect game.The fact that the batter checked his swing tells us it wasn't that far out of the zone.

    Come on now, are you suggesting the umps took a pay off on this game.

            Can we technically include Armando Galarraga since he did throw a perfect game. Hell, he even retired 28 straight just for fun.

              If we're including Galarraga, we have to include Anibal Sanchez as well. He almost had his 2nd career no-hitter this year against the Twins. He went 8 1/3 innings before allowing a single to Joe Maurer.

                Nobody blew a call in Sanchez's game against Minnesota. It's not just a matter of getting close.

                  Milt Pappas is adamant that Ball Four On Stahl was a blown call by the ump and actually should have been Strike Three. -- Pappas will go to his grave still blaming that umpire for costing him a perfect game.!
