How about a little change of pace, no gay talk, politics, undocumented aliens etc, etc.

Let me preface this by saying I am a met fan. Watch this play. It would have been a bang-bang play at first. It could have been scored an error. However it CANNOT be reversed. And probably won't.

yes, it was an error.
he should have remembered that he is a gold glove award winner,
not a golden hand.
he definitely had enough time to glove it.

edit: it took a lot of courage for you to come out
as a mets fan

That is one of those 50/50 calls. It was a slow hit ground ball and the reason it was probably ruled a hit was because there was a decent shot the runner would have made it to first base safely. That being said, even if you are in the "error" camp, as a Met fan isn't this like evening things out for Johann Santana's no hitter a few weeks ago, when there was a ball ruled foul that was fair and would have been at least a double.

it was not a slow hit ground ball.
look at the video again,
it was a chop that was bouncing.

Ground ball, chop. Same crap, different pile. That ball took quite a while to get down to Wright. The reason it was ruled a hit, like I said earlier is there was a decent chance the runner beats it out had it been fielded cleanly. This is made clear by the fact Wright feels he needs to barehand the ball instead on fielding it with his glove, and transferring it to his hand to throw it. He was clearly trying to eliminate hundreths of a second by any means possible there.

... Do we really care if the Mets care credited with a no-hitter or not? They won the game. There's no column in the standings for no-hitters. I doubt anyone on the team gets a bonus for one. Or if they do... they don't deserve it for that sloppy play.

FORGIVE ME, I just wanted to interject a change of pace in the subject matter.

No question that's a error. What makes you say that it cannot be reversed? Can't the official scorer submit a proposed scoring change to the league office within 7 days of the game's conclusion?

They did not reverse this blatant mistake.
