I’m confused. I feel like I’ve been watching baseball for a long time, but does your foot or hand or whatever body part have to touch/cover a certain percentage of home plate – like, say, 40 – in order for it to be considered a run? Because with that play at the plate that ended the 8th inning, it sure looks like Jonny Gomes definitely touched part of the plate well before Ryan Doumit tagged him. Did he not touch ENOUGH of the plate? How does that work?

Good thing we won anyway.

    Yup, that call sucked. From the TV shot, it looks like the ump had a bad angle on the play anyways.

    Glad it didn’t cost us the game in any way.

    Nice hustle, Jonny.
