Having Joe Yuck doing the call doesn't help much.

Having an IR Umpire in the pressbox with a TV could have settled that in about 5 seconds

Next year there will be some kind of expanded replay.

Having a competent umpire on the field would have prevented it in the first place. Seriously, how do you blow that?

Yeah but isn't that going to involve challenge flags and other football-inspired **** like that? OK, it's bad enough a guy less than 10 feet from that play blew that call (seriously, the ball was never even in Kozma's mitt) but again, any IR system that takes more than 5 seconds to reverse a call that obvious is a waste of time.

They should just put the replay on the jumbotron. Much quicker than going to the camera hood...

No because if the ump disagrees with the crowd it could get ugly fast.

AJ not wearing World Series ring. Surprised because I remember seeing it when broadcasting a previous WS.

I will give Matheny props for handling it as well as he did. He's keeping his guys focused on the task at hand.
Beltran will play tonight.

He doesn't play for us anymore. Granted, he's only technically a Ranger at the moment, but he's still one of them more than he's one of us.

Kind of funny, both of the first two games have been "highlighted" by some pretty poor defense.
