I was at both games, and am a Giant fan.
Both CALLS were correct.

The rule STINKS.

They just made the rule far more complex that it needs to be.  They should have taken the NCAA collision rule and used it.  It's worked for years with little or no controversy.

Why was Ventura arguing with the umpire?  He had no
control over the call by replay officials.

Well Ventura was just frustrated. Aren't they all?

Buck had the best Meltdown when he asked about 3 times if he could put the headset on.

Bill - Jim and others OK, why do authors of websites consider themselves experts at this Home Plate fiasco. Jim said they should have adopted the NCAA version and I agree. Below read the sissified version.

http://tangotiger.com/index.php/site/article/commit-line-to-avoid-collisions

* Adult CoEd softball paints a perpendicular line X amount of feet from home plate. I still say these goofy suggestions are BECAUSE weekend warriors cannot Run, Catch nor Throw!

* In fact I have stated before that the HS slide/no slide gizmo exists MAINLY because in the last 20 years middle infielders have no clue on how to play their postitons, especially getting to the bag on time, setting up too far away in DP position etc.

I just think the rule writers made it too complicated.  
Most of the injuries I've seen at home result from the
runner crashing into the catcher and most would be
considered "malicious" in NFHS or violate the NCAA
collision rule.  You're going to have train wrecks, but
it's runners coming into home intentionally trying to
dislodge the ball that were the real problem.  Both
NFHS and NCAA have rules that deal with those
situations and they've worked for years.

The "commit line" suggestion is the dumbest thing I've
seen since the 45 degree line for a LHP throwing to
first base.  We all know how well that worked out.

I agree with Bill. They've made the rule and comments too confusing.
