MLB Instant Replay Review 100: Seth Buckminster (03)

Instant Replay Review upheld 1B Umpire Seth Buckminster's out call in the top of the 2nd inning of the Dodgers-Giants game. With one out and one on, Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong threw to first baseman Brandon Belt in an attempt to pick off Dodgers baserunner R1 Matt Kemp, Belt's glove swiping onto Kemp's arm as Kemp's hand retouched first base. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly, Buckminster's ruling that Belt successfully caught the ball and tagged Kemp with his glove prior to Kemp's return to and while he was off first base was affirmed, the call was correct. At the time of the review, the contest was tied, 0-0. The Giants ultimately won the contest, 2-1.

This is Seth Buckminster (67)'s third Instant Replay Review of 2014.

"THE PITCH WAS DOWN!" translates to "Yo, dumbass, I might have called that pitch if your catcher held it at the knees!"

Does anyone treat the umpires better than Vin? NO! He is the gold standard of professionalism.

Vin Scully is amazing. Notice the language he uses to trash instant replay without explicitly trashing it:


"Wait", "Protest", "Bochy Won"...You can tell Vin hates it but is too classy to say it.

Haha. Mattingly up to his old tricks , it's funny that Vinny is even starting to question some decisions on the air, very subtly of course. Freakin Brandon league.
