- KC's View:
I'm pleased to see the Dodgers advancing, but let's not pretend that the call that ended the game and series last night, saying that Wilmer Flores swung at a Max Scherzer pitch when he clearly held up, was a good one. It wasn't, and it was a terrible way to end a matchup for the ages. (Though, to be honest, I'm just glad the game didn't go into extra innings - I'm exhausted from these late-night games.)
I don't understand why such a call is not reviewable, especially at that point in a playoff game. It should be.
