That's unfortunate. It didn't look like he had passed the runner. Poor guy.

It depends on the camera angle.  On one angle I saw, it looked like he maybe passed him by a couple of inches.

And since Baseball is a game of inches, that's what the refs used to take away the home run.

Sucks, but so do the refs.

Tagging up in case the ball was caught at the wall.

Unless you mean for the rest of the trot? Because yeah, that was unnecessarily slow.

In his defense, Deven doesn't have much practice running the bases after a homer.

At the end of the video clip, they say that's the only angle the reviewers had. I don't know if it was conclusive, but I'd also say he edged just past him. So, yep, game of inches. So it goes.

Aside from that fark-up, Avila and Marrero did two of the slowest home run trots I've ever seen. Marrero (obviously) can't go any faster than the lead runner, so that's Avila's doing. Avila is slow, but not that slow. Is there some bad blood that I'm not aware of?

Well, actually they do.  Referee is a general term for in-field game officials.  As far as I know only hockey uses "referee" as an official position designation.  As an example, basketball has crew chiefs and umpires, not referees.  That's like arguing that there are no baseball players on a team because they are technically first basemen, second basemen, etc.

how does baseball get associated with a game of inches when the strike zone can be a completely subjective thing that controls most of the game?

game of unwritten rules is more like it.

Now if you would excuse me, it is the top of the 9th, we are down five runs and I am being told to bunt.

No one ever said those inches had to be consistent.

That's what she said.
