Maybe it’s not them, it’s me
Maybe my memory is failing me, but the strangest play I’ve ever seen was during last year’s ALCS between the Yankees and the Angels when Tim McClelland forgot that little technicality where if a guy is not on a base and is tagged out, he’s, well, out. I didn’t get it, I still don’t get it, he never really gave a clear explanation of why he called one guy safe and one guy out, but whatever. It is what it is. Sometimes it’s okay for an umpire’s call to be influenced by an arguing manager. It’s better for the game and for the ump when he reverses his call if he’s wrong.
