So just like that, bam-bam-bam turns into a longer than average inning?

Bring back real baseball.

I can't recall the circumstances but I think the Nats had a double-challenge already.

It's not just the replays. It's the times the managers go out on the field and stand around while the clubhouse video guru looks at a replay to see if its worth challenging.

Anyone got time of game stats for this year vs. last year?

Great game! went 4-4 on the road trip, including taking 2 of 3 from a team with 3x our payroll. Playing .500 ball on the road and winning at home is key.

Time for a ten game home stand!  Let's go Tribe!!!!!

Ties have never gone to the runner.  That's a sandlot rule.

This.
The runner must beat the throw/tag.

Also, there has to be clear evidence to overturn the umps call on the field (which was out on both tags).

Crap. Was remembering it live, original call was safe at second on Puig. So one call overturned and one held up.

dear baseball: have more than 2 camera angles, you idiots

they should just start accepting fan uploads of vid clips to show on the in-stadium screens and then all of them can be put together to create a 3-dimensional recreation of the play.  wait, thats brilliant.

somebody make this happen and put my name on it.

Well, I didn't really see anything in the replay to overturn either call, but hey, why not just change the call to make it seem like the three-minute delay had a purpose?

Except in this play, where the call at second was safe.

Gordon attempted for home, but Brantley threw him out. Indians catcher Yan Gomes got up and saw Puig trying to take second, so he threw to Jason Kipnis. The umpire called Puig safe.
