Bone Chips said:Yes, but last year the umps would have instantly made a ruling of "out" if Pedroia had left early. But in the era of replay, when nobody knows what's reviewable and what is not, we have to wait two minutes after the play to know for sure.
As others have suggested, you are allowing your (understandable) dismay at the way MLB has instituted replay to cloud your judgment with respect to the facts.
The bolded is simply incorrect as a factual statement. There would not have been an out call because that's not how the rules work - the team on the field has to appeal the play by stepping on the bag and then the ump rules. The Os could have appealed that play last night and for whatever reason chose not to.
The conversation Buck was having was irrelevant. The idea that that it would ruin the game for you tells me that you are not really a fan of baseball.
