Oh Well

Selig will not reverse umpire’s blown call

I still think it's dumb, pig-headed, stubborn, and unnecessary not to overturn the call. From a general life philosophy perspective, if you have the power and means to correct a mistake, shouldn't you?

That said, changing the call wouldn't give the players or the fans back that moment to celebrate. It might have healed some wounds, but the damage was done. After all, you can't have a perfect game with an error, even if that error was by an umpire. One way or another the game was always going to be the "Imperfect Perfect Game".

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
