happens just before the halfway mark. Michael Morse was on an 18 game hitting streak but Philly challenged the ruling of it being a hit, which I'm assuming to take an ER off Cole Hamels ERA(whilst giving Rollins an error in the process lulz).

MLB reversed it, made it an error, shaved a run off Hamels' ERA, and Morse's 18(would be 19 after tonight) game hit streak was broken up.

Kinda lame IMO to ask the MLB to give one of your players an error.

I personally think it's a hit but obv I'm subjective. Ball was hit pretty hard. The odd thing was the play before that Zimmerman got a very questionable hit and that honestly was more of an error than the one they reversed.

I just don't get it. It's a huge **** you to Jimmy Rollins just to shave one measly run off Cole's ERA.. also ****s Michael Morse in the process.

i'd call it an error but scorers seem to be pretty damn generous to hitters this year, ive seen flyouts get dropped and called hits this season. not surprised that it was ruled a hit initially

it' tough to say but looks more like an error to me, still pretty gay that the phillies challenged the ruling though

I would barely call that an error, I don't see how they actually went back and reversed the call. It's a play that he usually makes, but it's far from routine. Pretty lame.

yeah, he is beasting right now. if the whole team could start hitting good, they'd be unstoppable with the pitching they have

that ball took a hop on him at the end and hit the heel of his glove. really nothing he could do to field it, so it shouldn't be considered an error. it's not like he got good glove on it and then botched it

Hit, most SS don't make that play. If they do it's made out to be a great play.

Nats scorekeepers are even worse.

http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=320802120

That game, the Nats ruled 2 obvious errors hits in the 2nd or 3rd inning.

Borderline. I could see it called either way. Generally that means it's a hit for the home team and an error for visiting team hitters.

But it's absolute bull**** that it was reversed afterwards. If the scorekeeper changed it at the game, that'd be fine, but MLB changing it...

It's one of those plays that is so close, like in the NFL, where after you review it you just stick to the original call.

I'd lean towards saying it's a hit. He crushed that ball and it was a tough in-between hop. The fact that the MLB changed it mind=blown.
