    I think Chadd meant what we all saw.....he was out...100%....what I thought was the most amazing part was after the call he looked at the ump like he was from another planet, then just smiled and took it like a true pro......That is what it is all about...
    But as ArubaLisa stated, instant replay rules would have fixed it and he could have the priviledge of a perfect game under his belt....

    But if you look real close, the ball pops out of his glove for a split second!

    Umpire said that he had called the runner safe because he had thought the runner beat the throw, not because of a bobble. Umpire saw replay and admitted his mistake. Call was wrong, period.

    Selig is gutless.

    I know this is a dumb question, but why in this day and age does baseball not have instant replay....it seems to work very well for the nfl.....sometimes for our good and sometimes for our opponent (sp?), but all is fair as they say...

    Everone has an opinion...I for one feel sorry for the young pitcher. How exciting for him to almost have a perfect game...

    Associated Press "I have replayed that play so many times, my head hurts," Joyce said. "All I can see is Armando Galarraga's face. He didn't say a word to me. I can see his face and him not saying anything. When that happens, you think you're right."
    Replays later showed he missed the call, and Joyce admitted he blew it.

    the whole thing is so sad.
    but the other side of the event is that the player and the ump were "gentlemen" and a day or 2 later, the ump got a standing O, which brought him to tears.

    again, their gentlemanly behavior i think is the lesson here.
    all kids in organized sports would watch this great show of sportsmanship.

    and rob o, paul is saying the same thing about the commissioner.
    folks here in Lakeland are really taking the event badly, but lots poolside are talking lots about how they both have risen above a bad situation.
    Lakeland is the spring training home to the tigers.

    Yes, Joyce says he blew it, but my head hurts to. It would have been great to be #21 perfect game. This is just imo baseball is and should be always a judgement call, no replay. They both were very gracious and I'm sorry he did not get the perfect game, but I saw a bobble. jmo

    Not just kids....adults too.

    There is no way that anyone could ever expect Gallarraga to have reacted so well, especially given the pressure he was under.

    We normally expect athletes to act like professionals....when they're really just kids....typically not that well educated either. However, in this case, Gallarraga had the polish of a senior executive.
