Gerry Davis, bullshit artist

His take on the Swisher HBP no-call last night:

Quote:

“We looked at it. Obviously in Angel’s judgment the ball had not hit him, and we looked at the replay, and even from different angles, it’s inconclusive.”
Um, what? Look, I know MLB is paying you and they like to cover stuff up so you must feel inclined to do the same, but you’re really just going to lie to America like that? Really?

That’s not conclusive? Okay.

Do I believe that call possibly changed the whole game? Yes, yes I do. After the HBP the score is 7-4 and the bases are still loaded. The Berkman AB would have been completely different. He could have homered, or he could have GIDP. But the game would have been totally different. Maybe the inning ends 7-4, but Mitre doesn’t pitch the ninth in that case.

Oh well. I know it wasn’t Davis who made the call last night, but we all remember this safe call…
