Carlos Santana was out by six feet, but apparently umpire Jim Wolf is legally blind (Deadspin)

Recommended Posts

It is as if they are having a competition to see who can blow the most obvious call.

I think this one puts Wolf in the lead over Welke's call at first base back in May. At least Welke had the excuse that he was in a terrible position (his own fault) to make the call.

Terrible call, but a horribly misleading article title. It's not like Wolf didn't see the ball beat the runner by 6 feet, he said he was bobbling the ball. Obviously it's the wrong call, but that's just terrible "journalism". Of course...it is Deadspin...

Joey Votto got an "error" on the throw.

Plus, instead of the inning ending right there (like it should have), the Indians proceeded to get 3 additional runs on a bases-clearing double before the Reds recorded the 4th and final out.

Sometimes you just have to laugh, otherwise you would probably cry.
