The Umpire said he knew the rule and when asked about it, in his judgment, it didn’t apply. I think Wieters and Dusty knew the rule, asked the umpire and was denied. And it took MLB two weeks to confirm the right call. You’re sure that going to NYC would have gotten the result we were looking for?

I don’t agree with everyone that thinks Dusty makes poor pitching decisions, but at least I understand those. I don’t understand blaming him for this. MLB screwed up. The entire umpiring crew screwed up, I mean they ask do a crew chief review for anything that was close to questionable, but not this?

The mental gymnastics required to make Dusty the primary person at fault is actually pretty impressive.
