I learned a long time ago that life isn’t always fair. Knowing that life isn’t always fair doesn’t mean it’s easy to accept when you are faced with its unfairness.
I’ve watched the game-ending play multiple times. I’ve heard the explanations. If the call is truly a correct interpretation of the rule, I guess fans have no other real choice than to accept it. I don’t see, however, how MLB doesn’t rewrite this rule in the off season because, even as Joe Torre admitted during a post game interview, the end result wasn’t necessarily fair. If as fans we can’t count on the league doing its utmost to make sure the game outcomes are as fair as possible, it’s tough to remain emotionally invested in a game.
