Well, that's one way to do it.

Heh, that is a legit walk-off piece, because that's what Gonzalez basically does after that "aw, damn it" moment.

Eh, I don't think that's really true - for example, I've seen a bunch of replays of bang-bang plays at first where it wasn't really clear whether the ball was in the glove before the foot was on the bag.

How could it not be clear if the angle was the right one? When the runner's foot touches the base at the precise moment that the ball reaches the first baseman's glove, that still compels a clear "tie goes to the runner" decision. In fact the only time the umpire's decision would really be considered the default one would be when the cameramen all screwed up.

Maybe your eyes are better than mine (most people's are - I have a 6.5 prescription for my contacts and probably need even stronger ones), but I often can't tell from a replay whether the ball is in the glove .3 seconds before, at the same time, or .3 seconds after the runner's foot touches the base. Especially with the uncertainty about whether it has to be fully lodged in the back of the pocket of the glove.

Howie if that was the case then theres a lot of replays to change. Cubs hVe been hit by that and im sure other teams have as well.

Technology is never wrong.
