Umpire Blows Double Play Call To End Game, Confirm Own Blindness

Laz Diaz needs to get on Aetna Navigator and find a good optometrist.

Soooooo, did Neil Walker actually tag Wilson Ramos there? Because if he didn't, the game should not be over and the Nats have the tying run at the plate. Sure looks iffy from this angle. What else we got?

Laz Diaz, meanwhile, didn't even hesitate to make the out call. Maybe Ramos was blocking his view? Maybe Diaz has an undiagnosed cataract? The guessing could haunt us for days if we allow it.

To their credit, even the Pirates broadcasters didn't think Walker applied the tag from the moment it happened.

The Nats announcers were just slightly more incredulous.
