That's a terrible use of replay as others have said. It completely violates the spirit of the rule. Lobetone beat the play. The bases don't move and human hands and feet are going to momentarily bounce after impact. I hope MLB can address this on the off-season.

I don’t think you can tell for sure that no part of his foot or leg was still in the bag...You could assume, but I don’t think that angle 100% proved it.

Now now - if Vaz caught somebody like that you would be OK with it.
If he caught someone like that and the umpire called the runner out, then I would be OK with it. If you have to slow it down frame by frame to see the out, I wouldn't want that no matter which team was getting it. If it is going to be the rule, I want my team to benefit, but I don't like the rule.

I thought of that but was trying to be nice.
Went to visit my brother last weekend and his hayseed, dickies wearing, scoal tobacco chewing, bud light beer drinking shitkicker neighbor from Maine called me that all weekend long; it was funny the first time he said it, but the 457th time, not so much.

if they lose this Matt Weiters should be tarred and feathered. That was the worst catching performance I've ever seen in a playoff game. He makes Gedman's 10th inning of game 6 look competent.

You have got to have a backup plan for Davis here, he is not this kind of pitcher.
Joe is desperate. His pen has been shaky. Funny thing is Davis throwing pitches 16-30 in an outing has struck out 7 of 10 batters this year. (Of course I doubt that's spread over THREE Innings)

I don't think Davis can do this, I would be dying if I was a Cubs fan here.
