    Dana Demuth

    Choked the team all night with the strike zone.  Gave every low call to every cards pitcher and none to the sox.  On the last play, he waited until the bitter end to call Craig safe at home and when it was clear that he could not, he switched to obstruction

    But yes, his strike zone was terribly one sided.  Some of the calls to our LH batters were so far outside they boarded on comical.  And when I also think about his botched call at 2B, I can't help but wonder if the fix is in.

    I don't think Demuth was behind the plate. Was he?

    Craig is so far inside the baseline it cant be obstruction.  he had many clear paths to home and turned inward three steps.  he induced obstruction by literally running towards the fielder.  he turned way way inward for no apparent reason.  it was a circuitous route to home plate

    Unbelievable. He was listed as being on second for game 3 when I looked it up. And I looked it up just to make sure he wasn't behind the plate for all those outrageous balls/strikes calls. I said he should have been removed from the rest of the games for his awful call at second, and when posters told me that was outrageous, I asked them if they wanted him behind the plate. Well, that's the called game, including balls and strikes, they got with him behind the plate. Like I said, he should have been removed from the rest of the games. #vindicated

    And he also pushed Middy back down when he was trying to get up.

    Absolutely agree.  He was horrible behind the plate.  He hosed Doubront on about three straight pitches and Sox pitchers, unlike the Cards, couldn't get a low strike.

    Didn't he call that clear tag out at home safe before the obstruction call? At first I thought that's what they were arguing.

    Re: Dana Demuth

    Doubrant threw 2 pitches that should have been called strike 3's against Holliday, pitches that were called on Red Sox hitters all night.  Ellsbury was having strikes called against him on pitches that were 4 inches off the plate.

    Also, Beltran made no effort to avoid the pitch that grazed his armor.  By the rule book, he should not have been awarded 1st base. 

    Rule 6.08 deals with the batter being awarded first base. I've started at 6.08(b). The hitter is awarded first base if...

    (b) He is touched by a pitched ball which he is not attempting to hit unless
    (1) The ball is in the strike zone when it touches the batter, or
    (2) The batter makes no attempt to avoid being touched by the ball;

    ...or the batter wears an elbow pad so he gets further into the strikezone, and doesn't have to be concerned with getting hit.

    This world series is starting to remind me of basketball with so many questionable calls its easy to start thinking that the fix is in. I'm not saying it is but it sure seems odd.
