All those saves and Hoffman blows a 2 run lead when it really counts.

I think he did, actually. The camera angle from behind the plate makes it look like his hand hits Barret's cleat, then passes on over the plate. From the OF camera, it totally looks like he missed it, though.

I really don't think he got the plate...

Would the result stand if they determine he didn't touch??

Disagree....the behind the plate angle looks like his hand, after hitting the catcher's cleat touches the plate. If I'm a Padres fan, I'm pissed that my closer got lit up, not some bang-bang call that looks inconclusive, at best, to me.

There is no determine. It's done.

I don't know how you can see that. There's no way it touched the plate.

But you're right - doesn't matter anyway. Their closer blew it.

ETA: Just noticed your latest post...

No. No more than Colorado cannot protest the HR they might have had robbed from them earlier in the game.

Phanan, see above, I retracted what I said.

Well, it was a shitty end to the game, but bring on the Rockies...Howard's going to feast on the mile-high air.

I'd be shitting bricks right now if I was a Friars fan...wow...

Yeah, I think Holliday probably won't remember the slide anyway since his head smashed into the ground. I'm sure he'll be ok though.

That umpire needed to either stick with the no call or do it right away.


maybe he was gambling on this game or something.

It's a sad commentary on the state of sports today when that's the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw the umpire hesitate to make the call ( I don't think his hand touched the plate either).

Overall, great game, and while I'm not the biggest baseball fan, I love the playoffs—I try not to miss any games.
