They showed a freeze frame that was pretty conclusive.  He was out.  Agree on the effort though.

I respectfully disagree.  The glove was laid down between the camera and the arm, and I agree at that moment it looked like it was in contact, but you can't see at that angle.  As action continued, the runner continued to move forward, and eventually into the glove which showed me that it hadn't been touching when the stop action was shown.  By then, the hand was across the plate. 

Too bad they didn't have a camera right above home plate, because that would have shown it conclusively.
