What is the point of having instant replay if you are not not permitted to use it on plays that could be fixed. Umpires got foul tip 3rd strike calls wrong twice in yesterdays Cubs game. Rizzo called out on strikes after he tipped the ball. Grandersons swing and miss on a 3rd strike wrongly called a foul tip. Neither play reviewable.
To make matters worse, earlier in the series, when instant replay was used to change the out at home call on the Contreras tag to a safe call, instant replay got it wrong. Disappointing.
Luckily, none of those calls changed the outcome of any game. My rant is over.
The same thing happened in Game 2 of the ALDS and a bad call cost the Yankees the game.
