    Oh Joe, it's tough when you get that one call against you, you haven't had many go against you, to accept the reality; humans are not perfect. Think about all the calls you got, things will go better today---you've got the 1 B umpire behind the plate today---how long will you last today if the O's get a lead. Hopefully the MLB Network will have this one so we can go between plays of the Pat's game.

    Bringing up any S-WB players--they will have tee times today after losing 3 of 4 to the PawSox.

    Don't worry about your  three games in Boston---we are mired in last place with absolutely nothing to play for other than a top 10 draft pick. Management will be happy you're in town, the Sellout Streak will continue through, at least, Thursday.

    Sorry about three posts--the Cancel or Edit would have worked here but we don't have access to that in the new Forum system.

    Texiera got called out because he fooled the umpire.  An umpire should not be fooled on such a play, but when he expects a guy to run through the base and then the dumb runner slides the umpire's perspective gets changed.

    There was absolutely no reason to slide into first on that play.  Also, no runner gets "faster" by sliding or every track guy running a sprint would "slide" into the finish line.  Sliding into first should only be used for avoiding a tag.

    Maybe the ump called him out because the runner was just stupid?

    Texiera was called out because he fooled the umpire.  An umpire should not be fooled on such a play, but when he is expecting the runner to run through the bag and then the runner slides the ump's perspective gets changed.

    There was no reason to "slide" in to first base on that play.  Every runner knows that he is fast when he doesn't slide or we would see every track sprinter "sliding" in to the finish line at every track meet.  The only time a runner should slide in to first is when he is trying to avoid a tag.

    Perhaps the umpire just called Texiera out for being stupid?
