I have played, coached, and watched a lot of baseball in my 55 years, but can someone with some baseball knowledge please explain to me how Gilbert getting hit Friday was any different from the ND player getting hit today? I mean both players were checking their swings, but the difference was the ND player was in the strike zone. Both calls were reviewable and both calls had a drastic impact on the game. Don't get me wrong. I'm not blaming the umps for the outcome of the series. The strike zone was "Effing horrible", but ND adjusted and we didn't. But those two calls were grossly inconsistent.
