According to the NJ Star-Ledger, MLB says last night's Mets/Nats umpiring crew made the right decision to overturn the original call on the field and rule Daniel Murphy's phantom homerun a homerun:
Mike Port, Major League Baseball's vice president of umpiring, said umpires were correct to overturn their initial ruling and deem Daniel Murphy's drive to right field a home run Wednesday night at Citi Field.
"From what the umpires saw in their video review, it was clear and convincing enough for them to change their call," Port wrote in an e-mail to The Star-Ledger.
According to anonymous, unnamed sources, upon further review of the video evidence of last nights debacle MLB may or may not have acknowledged that Josh Willingham is a bigger liability than Adam Dunn in left, and that Manny Acta is pretty much begging the Nats to fire him.
