C.B. Bucknor approves of his ridiculous call

Our own Bill Baer has the GIF from the seventh inning of Wednesday’s Marlins-Phillies game. Christian Yelich hit a little squibber down the first base line and then this happened:

That’s C.B. Bucknor with the bobblehead impression and blown call. Cesar Jimenez might have touched Yelich with his bare hand, but that hardly matters when the ball is in his glove (which he showed to Bucknor as proof of, well, something).
