Bud Lite Blows Call on Ump's Blown Call
The error would have been easy enough for Selig to fix: Realize that Joyce was outrageously wrong to call Cleveland's Jason Donald safe with two out in the ninth inning, grasp that Galarraga and the Tigers went on to win 3-0 and conclude that a call reversal would be irrelevant to the game's outcome. That way, Selig would remind fans that baseball's integrity is vital to its record-keeping and that he can't, in good conscience, leave Galarraga off history's roll call.
But as we awaited justice, Selig just brought more inaction and ambiguity to a sport that is more maddening these days than satisfying. A baseball source confirmed to both the Associated Press and FanHouse that Selig won't be reversing and, typically, Bud Lite didn't even make it a point of reference in his statement about the situation.
