MLB Instant Replay Review 143: Marty Foster (03)

Instant Replay Review confirmed HP Umpire Marty Foster's out call in the top of the 9th inning of the Cardinals-Mets game. With one out and two on, Cardinals batter Daniel Descalso hit a 2-0 sinker from Mets pitcher Kyle Farnsworth on a fly ball to center fielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who threw to shortstop Ruben Tejada to catcher Travis d'Arnaud as Cardinals baserunner R1 Matt Carpenter arrived at home plate via a slide. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny, Foster's ruling that d'Arnaud's glove tagged the back of Carpenter prior to Carpenter's touch arrival at home plate was affirmed, the call was correct. At the time of the review, the Mets were leading, 3-2. The Mets ultimately won the contest, 3-2.

Wow--that's just industrial grade stupid to put it in that obvious a place.

I like how the announcers are like "yeah, it's heating, but EVERYONE does it." You can argue until the cows come home whether it should be illegal or not, but it is ILLEGAL! But that's the problem when you have rules that are up to manager challenge, people get away with it because the opposing manager doesn't challenge it. Same with tar on bats and whatnot, but why is it the challenging manager who looks like the bad guy? Like when Davey Johnson asked to check whats-his-name's glove, everyone was pissed at him. The pitcher is CHEATING!!!!!

So here's my quick, ignorant question. We've got this guy cheating on video; multiple times, nobody is trying to argue that it's not cheating...why don't we ban him for life and move on? When is baseball going to generate an interest in playing fair? There are 600 MLB players and how many thousand minor league players all earning their living (take that lightly about some minor-leaguers) in this sport and people at the highest end of the pay spectrum are fraudulent? What happens when some MiLB player files a federal suit against pinada for unfairly denying him the right to an MLB pitching contract by cheating? What happens when he names the Yankees co-defendant??? I hope it happens--this is just plain stupid to play these games and cheat like this. And baseball thinks Pete Rose was a crook and he never did anything to affect the outcome of a game....Boo MLB! Boo Commissioner!!!
