No one who knows me will be surprised that my first blog post will be about baseball.
Last night’s call by Jim Joyce denying Armando Galarraga a perfect game is yet the most recent example of the need for baseball to adapt to the modern era and accept the use of technology in assisting umpires who make tough, close calls. In this case, there is no disputing that Joyce made a horrible call. He admits he blew it. The replay is clear.
Now it is time for the Commissioner to demonstrate leadership and move baseball forward.
