Well, the idea of replay is to get the call right, right?
So last night’s Giants/Pirates game had a bizarre ending. We all THOUGHT it was going to the 10th, but instead it was won in the 9th after the folks in New York said “Nope you blew the call.”
The decision was right. Doesn’t mean teeth weren’t ground in the Giants clubhouse.
Meanwhile the Red Sox don’t let one slip away and the A’s bats can’t wake up.
Time to update the Dodged Bullet – Teeth Grinder Tally.
An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.
