              • Mets win on a walk-off HBP.

                Problem being the plate umpire begins to ring him up before stopping and saying he was hit by the pitch. If you are hit by a pitch in the strike zone, it's a dead ball strike, which in this case is an out being a two strike count.

                This creates a bit of a quandary if the Marlins decide to protest. You cannot protest a judgement call. However, you can protest a misapplication of the rules. I can't find a specific definition on when a strike or ball becomes official (I'm not even sure if there is one, it might just be one of those it isn't until it is things), but you can clearly hear an audible strike call and he begins to ring the batter up. If that is deemed to be a strike call, then this would move into a misapplication of the hit-by-pitch rule.

                  The Mets needed a break. Lets not take it away from them.

                        MLB pussed out and said "review confirms a HBP, we cannot rule on a strike or ball, therefore the call stands."

                        Which... I guess. But my god it is being a puss.

                        The ump obviously just plum fucked up and did not apply the rules correctly. But there's no way MLB let's it be reversed. So, we get a totally undeserved win. So be it; something will balance it down the line.

                            Within the game that’s all the ruling could be on review. Apparently they can review if the ball hits the batter or not, but they can’t rule on if it hits him in the strike zone.

                            Miami has until noon tomorrow to protest if they want, but their chances aren’t great. In the last 40
                            years the only successful protests were the Pine Tar game, a game in ‘86 where they called it due to rain too early, and a 2014 game where the Cubs grounds crew made the field unplayable by being too slow with the tarp.

                            • I'm not even 100% convinced it hit him.

                              But next time he should really go for it. No slight grazing of the elbow. Get a running start and dive across homeplate in front of the pitch like a bodyguard. Really tempt MLB to overturn it.

                              • Heres the deal on this:

                                This was a fundamental, but catastrophic screw-up by Ron Kulpa. It was simply an information overload that took him an extra second to process. In the rush to process the result he simply ignored the fundamental aspect of the rule.

                                This is the umpire equivalent of a fielder having a simple pop-up hit them in the glove and then end up on the ground.

                                Yes it's a play that gets executed correctly 999/1000 times. The stars aligned on rep #1000 here.
