His Florida squad got the short end of a controversial call last night that eventually cost them a win against the Philadelphia Phillies.
With Hanley Ramirez on second base in the bottom of the 9th and the score knotted 4-4, Gaby Sanchez pulled a hard grounder toward the third-base bag. Davidson ruled it foul, negating what would have been a game-winning double.
To say those Marlins announcers were incredulous would be an understatement. The top Fish agreed.
"I've been in this game for 30 years, and I have the highest respect for the umpires," said Rodriguez, who pleaded his case hard. "That was the worst call I've ever seen in my 30 years in baseball. That ball was a fair ball by six inches. He was never even looking at the play."
