Kallas: Obstruction Call Was Correct, But Should The Run Have Counted?After a complete review of MLB Rule 7 and the obstruction definition under Rule 2, some interesting things have come to light. Also, further review of the play also adds an interesting dimension.

Nova Snaps Winless Drought, Yankees Defeat Jays 5-2Ivan Nova snapped a five game winless streak as the Yankees took their winning streak to 4 games by defeated the Blue Jays, 5-2 on Saturday.
Palladino: Come On Girardi, There’s No Flag-Throwing In Baseball!Joe Girardi theorized if a manager’s got a beef, he could throw a little challenge flag. Oh, brother. It’s as laughable as using lasers to call balls and strikes, and don’t think that hasn’t been suggested before.

Kallas Remarks: It's Time To Challenge The RefsBy now you have probably seen the play a dozen times. Justin Brownlee of St. John’s picks up the loose ball, up two, with a few seconds left in the game and steps out of bounds. But there’s a much bigger issue to be looked at here.
