The age of robot umpires may not be far away, as the officiating throughout the World Series has been pretty bad, and Game 7 was no different.
A number of questionable calls went against both teams, but the worst call that stood out among the rest came in the bottom of the eighth inning at a pivotal moment in the game.
Carlos Correa was at the plate, with his team trailing 4-2, and he was looking to get on base. It appeared he had worked the count to 3-2, as a fastball that never got any of the plate from Patrick Corbin was way inside, and yet, for some reason, umpire Jim Wolf called it a strike — and Correa was punched out.
One of the worst blown calls in a World Series you’ll ever see, as that pitch was more than a foot off the plate.
