Wise Guy: Ump's Blown Call Makes Dewayne Look Like A Hero

Okay, we all saw what happened. The umpire blew the call and Dewayne Wise was credited with an out, on the way to the Yankees 6-4 win over the Indians last night. Minutes after the call was made, the cries for expanded replay could be heard from all who witnessed the play, the loudest probably coming from the Indians announcers.Expanded replay. There wouldn't be this outcry for...

Dewayne Wise fools ump into thinking he made incredible catch

Dewayne Wise hurtled into the left field grandstand at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday night in what appeared to be an imitation of Derek Jeter's famous catch against the Red Sox in 2004. The left fielder, however, forgot one important part -- he didn't actually catch the ball. Unbelievably, he was able to sell the grab anyways, and the umpire ruled the Indians' Jack Hannahan...

Dewayne Wise makes phantom catch, umpire buys it

Just watch this whole minute and then give me a word to describe the call made by umpire Mike Dimuro.  Yankees left fielder Dewayne Wise made an athletic attempt jumping into the stands to catch a ball hit by Indians third baseman Jack Hannahan. Hannahan was actually ejected by Dimuro for arguing the call.  The Yankees won the game 6-4,

Dewayne Wise Should Have Admitted Muffed Catch and Found Better Way to Cheat at Baseball

Baseball is as much a sport of gamesmanship and guile as it is skill and ability, but the sport has long had a line between plucky strategy and just plain cheating. Dewayne Wise crossed that line Tuesday night. Wise, a journeyman who plays for the Yankees about as often as the bench coach, was in left field when a foul ball from Indians third baseman Jack Hannahan looped toward the...

Indians fall to Kiroda, Yankees

NEW YORK (AP) -- Robinson Cano homered and drove in three runs to extend his recent tear, Hiroki Kuroda took a shutout into the eighth inning and the New York Yankees beat the Cleveland Indians 7-1 on Monday night. Nick Swisher and Dewayne Wise also went deep for the homer-happy Yankees, who opened a seven-game homestand against the top two teams in the AL Central with their third...

The Real Truth about Yankees Alex Rodriguez part deux

Last week I wrote an article defending Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriquez, called ‘The Real Truth about Yankees Alex Rodriguez’ English: A-Rod batting in 2007. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) In essence it was my mea culpa about the way Yankee fans treat certain players, specifically Rodriguez because whether I like it or not, people get labeled and that includes sports fans too...

Alex Rodriguez was milliseconds away from taking a pitch to the face

The New York Yankees took on the New York Mets tonight where Alex Rodriguez had a pitch thrown directly at his head. He was able to duck out of the way in time but it was pretty close to nailing him in his face. This ball was thrown at around 70 MPH and the Mets’ catcher was unable to catch the ball. A-Rod collapsed to the ground with a smile that he didn’t get hit in the face...

Yankees Dewayne Wise incredible no catch

New York Yankees Dewayne Wise appears to make an incredible leaping catch into the left-field stands on Jack Hannahan's foul ball.  A closer look at the replay shows Wise never made the catch.   The Yankees beat the Cleveland Indians 6-4.

19 P*ssed Off Tweets For Mike DiMuro’s Ridiculous Dewayne Wise Catch Call

Umpire Mike DiMuro has to be the biggest waste of MLB umpire flesh, right? By now you know what happened in last night’s Yankees-Indians game. Yankees outfielder Dewayne Wise goes into the left field stands to catch a foul ball & clearly doesn’t make the catch.  Replay shows a fan in the vicinity bend over, pick up the ball and hold it up over his head. Does DiMuro ask...

Dewayne Wise Made an Awesome Catch (No He Didn’t!)

And we wonder why people hate the Yankees.

BP Unfiltered: Today in Entirely Speculative Out Calls by Ben Lindbergh

Everyone cuts corners. Yeah, if you don't do the reading for class, you probably won't get called on. Sure, that stadium is probably up to code. And that left fielder who fell into the stands? He probably held on to the ball. It's always easier not to do an inspection. Most of the time, cutting corners doesn't come back to bite you. When it does, it can be embarrassing...

Umpire admits mistake on Hannahan foul ball

In the seventh inning of last night’s game, Tribe third baseman Jack Hannahan hit a foul ball into the seats on the third base side. Yankees left fielder Dewayne Wise leaped into the stands and got leather on the ball, but did not make the catch. That didn’t stop umpire Mike DiMuro from calling it a catch however. Hannahan would be tossed later in the game for arguing the call...

Interview with Pete Ruiz

Pete Ruiz was the Red Sox 10th round draft pick in 2008. He was drafted as a starter out of Santa Barbara City Junior College, but now is a right handed reliever for the Salem Red Sox. He had been a starter up to last year, but the Red Sox thought he’d be better off as a reliever. That move has paid off so far, as Ruiz has dominated for the Salem Sox. He’s 4-1 this year, with...
