Wow what a horrible call, if this isn't a call for instant replay I don't know what is.

Dude's gonna have trouble getting out of Detriot tonight.

I watched the entire game from start to finish.

What a complete and utter cluster****.

Eat ****, Jim Joyce.

Armando Galarraga and the Tigers deserved better than that.

just watched the replay, what a ****ing joke. very few pitchers ever even have a shot like this at a perfect game, and they just destroyed his.

Watched it on the local Cleveland channel, even the Tribe announcers were in uproar over that call.

That's not even a "benefit of a doubt" call, that was just a completely blown call and Tigers(Cabrera) had every right for their actions during the last batter and after the game.

Wow, I almost watched history live and it got robbed!

Donnell was out by a full step, that is a routine call that 1st base umps RARELY blow, but to blow it with a perfect game on the line is not tolerable at all.

i feel so bad for this guy, his shining moment of his career just got ruined. at the end of the day, its no longer a perfect game and he will not go down in history as ahving one.

adam schefter said on twitter bud selig should award him with the first 28 batter perfect game, and its not a bad idea.

Bud needs to do something to remember this game in a positive light, 1 hit shutouts will eventually be forgotten and Galarraga's performance tonight should go down in immortality.

Can you imagine? That would have been (and it really was) 3 perfect games within a month of each other. And there had only been 18 ever before? That is just bizarre.

This call will go down as one of the worst in sports history. If it happens in the 3rd inning, it's a footnote. On the last out? Clearly a step away. Unfathomable. MLB is going to have a PR nightmare on their hands here.

He should be fired, and the arrogance to stand there and argue like a prick afterward, exactly everything I hate about profesional sports right there, the guy is so bad if he is fired the NBA will pick him up as a ref in a heartbeat.

He was ready to toss Cabrera out as well, during the next at-bat Cabrera was giving him a mouthful between each pitch at 1st base there.

That place wouldve exploded had he tossed Miguel out as well right after that horrendous blown call.

He shouldn't be fired for one call, that's absurd.


With that said, holy crap did he blow this one.

We also should be talking about Austin Jackson's unreal catch in the 9th inning to keep the perfect game intact, no outs with Mark Grudzielanek up and he roped a deep ball to left center that Jackson chased down and caught it over his shoulder ala willie mays.

That play by Jackson should be the stepping stone to Galarraga's perfect game.

I do agree, if Don Denkinger got to keep his job then this too shall pass for Jim Jyce.

That was an awesome catch by Austin Jackson.

He's been excellent for the Tigers....batting .332 and playing some super solid CF.

I'm a huge Tigers fan and I don't think Jim Joyce should lose his job.

I'd like to boot his nuts up his ass right now, but one play should not cost him his job.

I mean... I get that. But what if he had made the same call in a "normal" game. Would we be up in arms? No, we wouldn't.

My point is, I'm of the opinion that bad calls are bad no matter what the situation. And I don't know that any rep/ump/etc should be fired over one bad call.

Armando Galarraga was all class during his locker room interview.

Jim Joyce was broken up after the game and sought Galarraga out to apologize and tell him that he blew the call....sounds like the dude was pretty much in tears.
