ST. LOUIS -- If you missed all the craziness at the end of Game Three of the World Series Saturday night, you can read all about it in my story at this link. That story is largely the words and thoughts of the principals involved.
I'm on the side that the umpires got it right, making the correct call with conviction at a key time. You can hear more in my postgame audio podcast that was posted early morning at this link.
To get the full impact, you should watch the play below. Even Joe Buck has a delayed reaction making the call not fully knowing what's going on in the instant the play happened.
The umpires' press conference with Joe Torre is well worth your time. (From left) Dana DeMuth, Jim Joyce and John Hirschbeck did a great job explaining lots of issues that many of you brought up to me on Twitter after the game Saturday. Really worth a look.
Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe does a great job going over all the goofy decisions John Farrell made late in this one as well as the dilemmas the Red Sox manager is facing with his lineup moving forward.
