Safe?

The madness of umpiring without instant replay continues.

Out?

Mark Teixeira was called out on this play by umpire Jerry Meals. Had he been called safe, the tying run would have scored and two teams in a tight divisional race would have had to battle it out for at least another half-inning. Instead, it was ruled a game-ending double play.

It's difficult to demonize Meals - we're all human and make mistakes. What's so frustrating though is that Meals has no opportunity to review the play, admit the mistake and reverse the call. When is Major League Baseball going to institute meaningful instant replay? Baseball fans aren't asking for much, we're just asking that you take a minute to review the play and get the call right. Simple, no?
