Sorry I didn't make the rule but this might help.

Q. So he never needed to touch the base?

Torre: He never needed to touch the base because the umpire called him out. You're correcting umpire's mistake. In that situation, by going to replay, and they see the runner never touched the base, but the umpire called him out, by replay rules we can correct the situation and put the runner on the bag.

the part i dont like is that had the mets tagged him on his way off the field, he would have been out, just like utley didnt know to touch the bag after being called out, the mets didnt know to touch the bag or tag him for him to be out.
obviously, this is all assuming he doesnt get called out for intentionally "sliding" directly at the fielder who was by no means in his way...but i digress

Remember when the Jets brought in Joe Girrardi to teach Sanchez how to slide? Maybe Coughlin can bring in Utley to teach the secondary how to tackle.

To me, the whole 'baserunner breaking up the double-play' is a silly and unnecessary part of the game. It's much less integral to the sport than blocking home/running over the catcher.

But that's the way it's been forever, so they're not likely to legislate it out completely.

I don't envy him.
hell hear the boos but they wont hit him.
if they warn the benches before the game, harvey gets ejected for hitting him. and unless its a blow out, its just too big of a game to bring in, say, robles to plunk him and put him on
as for next year, anythings fair game

I know Torre said that but I don't know if that is accurate. Common sense would tells the play is over after he is called out.

i have trouble with that as well, if he didnt tag the base because he was called out, what difference would it make if they tagged him afterward?

You should the way the Cubs are playing. Young guns know no fear.

Ridiculous that they don't hear the appeal until Monday
