    1. I agree nearly every manager will do the same thing.
    2. Conventional wisdom doesn't make it the correct decision.
    3. I'm still fairly sure that going from 1st/2nd no out to 2nd/3rd one out makes it LESS likely that you'll score more than one run in an inning (although it makes it slightly more likely you'll score one run)

    Replay is so stupid. They still don't get the calls right and it slows everything down. That was as clear as day.

    It's hard to tell if the 3rd baseman's foot was on the bag, which is why the call probably stands.

    I think his foot came off the bag after it was on the bag. Either way, very close.

    The puzzling 'Jim Johnson, pitch-to-contact closer' era seems to be winding down...

    They lamed out and said there wasn't enough evidence to overturn or confirm the call... so it stands.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    You aren't factoring in that Hermann is a replacement level (or worse) hitter.
