Well, that was interesting ... I was just in the middle of your video Gil and it stopped and popped up a message saying the stream was suspended for policy violations.  Did Vanover toss you too!?  :cheers:

I'll have to be more crafty next time around. Looks like YouTube approved it since then:

Lets see how lenient MLB is going to be on this...

I agree with all the commentary in the UEFL /Close call video, excellent analysis!

IMO - 

  • Bell - Massive  suspension. EJ'd earlier returned and participated 
  • Garrett - Massive suspension Charging the opposing dugout and second offense for fighting
  • Puig - Long suspension second for fighting and reigniting the fire after things were calming down
  • Benavides - Long suspension returning after being previously EJ'd No he wasn't very active and was potentially a peacemaker, but you don't come back

I think the MLB office ought to subscribe to Close Call Sports!

But I also learned that MLB on field umps don't have the ability to call up to NY to identify all the participants. That should change.

As for Puig, he was traded today; rumors were already around before the game that he was being traded. I'm sure the new team will enjoy not having him for several games.

I agree that replay should be used to identify participants. I'm sure the video will be used after the fact to determine any additional fines/suspensions for those involved; the crew chief should have the same ability at the time.
