Yesterday a bad call by umpire Bill Welke cost the Tigers several runs and possibly the game. Afterwards, he said something that made complete and total sense:
For record, umpires agree they got the call wrong. Bill Welke: “What looks crystal clear [on video] didn’t look crystal clear from 1B line.”

If even the umpires can admit that replay often sees things that they can’t and would help ensure better calls, why again isn’t anyone in a position to do anything about it willing to admit the same?
