Our first play was brought to our attention by Dan both here on blogspot and on our Facebook page. Dan writes to us:
I thought this might make for a good discussion. It's from Monday night's Mets/Pirates game. Jerry Layne called Jose Reyes for interference on baserunner Jose Tabata, as Tabata was running in between second and third based. I would be curious to see if everyone thinks this was a good call or not.
Our second play also occurred during the Mets-Pirates series during the 6/12/11 game, which also included an ejection by Bob Davidson and an ejection by Jerry Layne. Anonymous writes to us:
This happens on the play before the ejection [of Hurdle]...
Can anyone see Pagan touch second, or is this a "he went by the base so he must have touched it" type of ruling?
