Worst called strike three ever?

Postby OaktownSteve » Mon Apr 08, 2013 8:53 pm

Did you see the call that ended the Rays and Rangers? Nathan to Zobrist. Maybe the worst called strike I've ever seen in thirty and some odd years watching baseball.

If that pitch was a strike then Dan Plesac has never dyed his hair.

Agreed. Worst called strike 3 ever and even Joe Nathan said: "Wowwwww" while scratching his head on the slow-mo replay

Yeah, I saw the end of that game. Ridiculous. I guess the ump didn't want to risk having to stick around for extras. I just hope that mlb doesn't fine Maddon for his post-game tweet. You should be able to comment on a blown call as horrific as that one.

As someone that started both Ogando and Nathan in their RCL league I really did not have a problem with the call. It wasn't right but I didn't have a problem with it.
