Now Fox can run with this "controversial" call for the rest of the series.

Joyce called it, and DuMuth pointed at Joyce to signal it before the play at the plate. Announcers did not mention this, but it is evident on the replay from behind 3rd base. Both umps called it.

Good call.

Yes.

I was screaming interference at the TV right after Craig tripped over Middlebrooks' legs.

The replay was pretty convincing. Middlebrooks lifted his legs just as Craig ran past him.

Shades of Lenny Dykstra...

Didn't seem to be intentional to my eye. Regardless, a crappy way to decide a World Series game.

Let 'em. It absolutely was the correct call. ESPN will probably be the ones to be melodramatic about it, and discuss the play nine ways till Sunday, debating if the call was right, seeing as it went against their house team.

I live in Cardinal country and I've never got that impression . There is a common bond of disdain with the Cubs. I like the way that team does things . Hopefully with Hahn we can set our goals higher than 85-77.

Remember though that Buck and McCarver are both St. Louis guys, so this won't be harped on like that.

I think if Middlebrooks didn't bend his legs up, there would have been no interference call.

I can imagine the black and purple bunting already going up at ESPN in Bristol.

Rules are rules. I agree the legs coming up might have been an accident just from bouncing off the ground, an unthinking reaction or the first move toward getting back on his feet, but it doesn't matter if he did it on purpose or not. It affected the base runner who would have easily been safe. Also, even if you can say in slow motion that it wasn't interference it's still at best a judgment call and that much harder to make while watching it live. Even with replay there wouldn't have been indisputable evidence to overturn the umpires call and both umpires made the same call at the same time.

Can't really fault them when that's what happens.

Edit: Remember that interference call that AJ got in 2008 in a rundown? No way that was intentional interference in fact it obviously was a planned effort by AJ. It's still the right call and if that one is, this one is too.

Craig should have just stepped on him like AJ on Aaron Boone.

It was, the rule is " would he have had a reasonable chance to score?", and based on the fact he was held up for a couple seconds and Middlebrooks raised his legs on purpose to slow him down there is no doubt. It even looked blatant and was called immediately.

Joe Torre and the umpires are now on the podium.
