Sure seems like the Astros got robbed. Won't cry for cheats though.

I just found a new supply of forks!

His arm was clearly over the wall. The glove was fair game.

"Clearly" that wasn't the case. The only thing I will give you is it was the idiot Joe West again. Why do they let that idiot anywhere near the field?  :)

This is what I saw too, but I don't think of it as an egregious call. Even after all the replay, opinions seem pretty split. It's laurel vs yanny all over again lol.

I can't blame anyone (except the fan) here. The replay official got it right - essentially not enough evidence to show either way clearly, so you let the call stand. And from what I've seen, it was close enough that not making the call would bring out tons of people saying it was interference and should have been an out. I actually lean toward saying the interference was in the field of play, though that lean is something like 55-45 at most.

I was 50/50 until I found out West made the call. Now I am 90/10.

This was supposed to be the money shot  ;D

Seriously though, this is the one that pushed me toward interference:

His body is pressed against the wall and his hand is away from his body. Unless it is an optical illusion it is "clearly" interference.

Either way, I'm happy just to chalk it up to Karma for all the cheating stuff coming out.

I wouldn't call that part conclusive. There's some thickness to that wall:
