    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.!

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

    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.

    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.

    Jae Sao and two relievers combined on a one-hitter Tuesday as the New York Mets posted a 5-0 triumph over the Florida Marlins. Sao (5-2) did not allow a hit until the fifth inning when Juan Encarnacion singled to left. Following his single, Encarnacion tried to steal second. He appeared to get a hand on the bag before Roberto Alomar applied the tag, but second base umpire Jim Joyce called him out. Sao, who left after 6 2/3 innings with a broken nail on his right index finger, struck out four and did not walk a batter. Weathers pitched 1 1/3 innings before Benitez pitched a perfect ninth.

    Typical Mets.

    If I am not mistaken, The Seo/Weathers/Benitez game was the last of three straight one-hit games that the Mets were involved in. Steve Tracshel pitched a one-hitter against the Angels in the first one-hit game, Dontrell Willis one-hit the Mets in the first game of the series, and Seo and the gang pitched to the minimum for the first and only time in Mets history.

    No, he faced 28 batters and gave up 1 hit.

    I stand...

    ... corrected. [actually, I'm sitting] It was, indeed, Babe Pinelli. I respectfully disagree with Duke Snider's opinion.

    It was Babe Pinelli-

    Mickey Mantle later admitted that the pitch looked high from his center-field angle. Dodgers outfielder Duke Snider said, "I think he (Pinelli) wanted to go out with a no-hitter," adding, "But there were 26 outs before that and he got them all. You can't take anything away from him."

    Thanks for your input.
