(AP Photo/Duane Burleson)If Bud Selig needs any more evidence of the need for expanded instant replay, today's game is Exhibit A. Daniel Nava clearly made a legal catch (losing the ball on the transfer) that was ruled a drop by the entire inept umpiring crew. John Farrell legitimately argued the call and got his first ejection as Red Sox manager. The blown call led to a series of events that resulted in the Red Sox losing the ballgame, 7-5. No doubt about it. Lousy umping, loss. Boston led the game 4-3, once again getting to Justin Verlander early. Felix Doubront pitched well again (after two first inning runs), but Farrell's questionable use of the bullpen (bringing in the erratic Andrew Miller) was also key to the loss. Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz each had three hits, Jacoby Ellsbury was 2 for 4 with an RBI.
