Padres at Dodgers this afternoon. T9, no outs, R1, R2. Inside pitch to Guzman hits the bat and probably rolls fair. The PU sure looks like he signaled foul. He has his arms up the whole time and then comes up with a definite "Foul" before then signaling Fair. The initial "foul" call fooled everybody. Vin Scully, the Padres announcers, and all of the base runners. I guess there was no verbal because F2 reacted as if the ball was fair and the Dodgers ended up turning a triple play.
Now, it sure looked like a "foul" call to me. Would this be protestable? I don't think one was lodged, but is sure looks like it was a foul turned fair. To be fair to the PU, his hands may have been up because he was trying to avoid F2, the Batter, and trying to find the ball, but pretty much everybody interpreted the motions as foul ball.
Let's see if this link works for you:
Looked to me like hiis arms initially went up to allow the catcher to clear, THEN they went up again to signal foul. THEN he changed his mind (or had an "OH F#*K" moment when he saw the ball and signalled fair. San Dieago manager had a point.
That is more or less what it looked like to me as well, but I can definitely see how the runners and announcers were confused. Heck, even F5 looked like he was initially wondering why he got the ball.
