    Buncha Fagots. Props to Ian Kinsler. He didn't even budge.

    He didn't leave until after the ump abandoned the plate.

    He had his hands together. That would normally be considered a balk too but there's no way. The ump quit officiating the game. How could he call it?

    he does walk away...but it looks like he flinched a nano second before the ump moves away

    I'll give that to him. They did a pretty good job on some real close calls during that game. The night before, the plate ump barfed and had to leave the game. It was pretty hot.
