Challenge: Bonifacio's hand appears to make contact with the base a split second before the glove comes down.

Close... But he looks out to me. Good call.

I'm confused. It looks to me like the replay clearly shows him to be safe. Don't blame blue for missing this one. Only in slow motion can you tell that he's safe, but isn't this clearly an incorrect call?

Gil Imber said...

The angle in the video is not the same angle as the umpire. I have him out also.

No big deal, but during commercial, HP Umpire and Scott Barry fill in Ron Kulpa has just ejected mike Napoli for arguing balls and strikes in the bottom of the sixth inning. Espn.
