There are no words to describe one of the worst calls in MLB history. People are comparing this call to Jim Joyce last year. How can you compare the two?Joyce's call had nothing to do with the game, and he felt absolutely horrible about it. Meals looked like he couldn't give two shits, he was ready to get off that field.
The Pirates battled more than they have ever battled before. An unbelievable performance from Grilli, McCutchen, and Watson. They and the rest of the bullpen pitched until they could pitch no more. Kevin Correia started to head toward the Pirates bullpen near the end of the game.
Not close. What an absolute shame that the umpires didn't let the players end the game. What a shame.
