seems to me, if it goes off a player and into the stands after hitting the ground, the lead runner should've been awarded home
Yep, just like a judgment call if a fan interferes.

Appears the double secret underground replay facility in NYC has been infiltrated by Bostonians.

Hearing Rosenthal and thinking about the Canseco heafer, I guess it is the same rule.  Batted ball until fielded cleanly. Just like the tuck rule. Stupid rule but correct call.

Also, it’s an automatic double, not a ground rule double.

MLBPA happy--can't have a team with a low payroll winning.

That's a ridiculous call. You have to award the runner home if there is any discretion.  KK could be forced to stay at 2nd, but the runner scores easily.

Play reminds me of the homer off Canseco's head.
it actually was the same rule as the Canseco header. Still a batted ball until fielded.

Can't change it--tradition you know.  Will ruin the game if we change it.   :hysterical:

How many Luis Garcia's are there in MLB?  They need to start numbering them like the korean lady golfers.

Ground rule doubles should just clear the bases in all circumstances.  It seems like there is no downside.

Wow!  What a crazy and magnificent game.   Call me a bandwagoner, but I'm rooting for the Red Sox to win the series.  No good reason except Schwarber (and to a lesser extent, Pivetta).

They said on MLB Network that if the player never has control of the ball, the rule says it's a ground rule double in that situation.  (Then after the game, Harold Reynolds just said the fact that it was an "unintentional touch" made it a ground rule double).   If it had been intentional, it would have been umpire's discretion.  What a weird play.  I feel a little bad for the Rays, even though I'm for the Red Sox.

Reynolds is absolutely adamant that this was a correct call. 

Tuck rule 2.0

Of course, wasn't Reynolds the one who said that Turner was out in the Series on the first baseline call?  So maybe we should just ignore him, even if he's right!   :D

Harold is a well known rules expert.  LOL.

They will be discussing this for a while.  Would like to see some former umps chip in.

In any event it was a  2 run HR so they would have won anyway.   :couch:

Can’t wait for Alex Cora versus the Asterisks and watching all the announcers try to dance around the elephants in the park

I imagine if they had scored a run they would have brought the closer in.

they had burned the closers much earlier in the game. Patino of course is the guy they got for Snell
