The Right Calls

I am liking this 6 umpire huddle thing. Twice tonight, bad initial calls were corrected to the proper one. The first was on the home run that bounced off a fan and back onto the field, and just now on Alex Rodriguez knocking out the ball with his left hand on the way to first. It’s not quite the mechanical perfection of the instant replay, but every time I’ve seen the umpires get together, they make the right call. Had both these bad calls been allowed to stand, the Red Sox would be losing the game and thus the series. I like a little justice in these things.
