A Kelly Brook (from Rochester, Kent, England) sort of morning.

On the strength of a quality start by Yovani Gallardo and a couple of home runs the Brewers beat the Marlins last night 7-4.  As Disciples of Uecker says in their game recap, this was the way it was supposed to be .

The Brewers Bar has some thoughts on the game as well and does mention the one area that Brewers were wanting in.  Namely that, and I quote ‘ the Brewers ran the bases like a bunch of morons early in the game ‘.

More on this below, but by now you’ve all heard about the blown call by Jim Joyce that took away a perfect game by Detroit pitcher Armando Galarraga.  The Bucky Channel says what will be a central theme on all the baseball oriented media today: Baseball Needs Instant Replay, Immediately.

Of Jim Joyce & Class  - Alright, Jim Joyce blew the call which took away a perfect game, something which has only happened 21 times in the history of baseball.  There’s no doubt about it and it will definitely spur on the decision to expand the use of instant replay in baseball.  Now, you can say what you want about the call but I have to say that as people go, Jim Joyce is alright in my book.  Not only did Joyce, after seeing a replay of the game, admit he screwed up, he then went and apologized to Armando Galarraga for it.  When, ever, have you heard of an umpire, referee or any type of official go to these lengths to try and right a wrong?  Pretty sure never.  So while the umpire Jim Joyce may be a goat this morning, the man Jim Joyce is a class act.

    Spot on about Joyce. A horrible call, but a class move afterwords. If you believe people are flawed and prone to error but redemption rests in a repentant desire to improve, then Jim Joyce is a man with spirit and soul.

    Sadly, that doesn’t do much to help Galarraga place in the history books, but to his credit the pitcher responded with dignity and class. I doubt that I would have done as well under the circumstances.

    Is this gonna be a case of getting the league office to review the call in an effort to get the call overturned?

    Didn’t the Brewers try to do that for C.C. in his one-hitter at Pittsburgh?

    My solution is to allow ech manager one replay challenge per game…the challenge cannot occur on a ball/strike call.

    Good idea, Jon!
