Tell us how you really feel, Gary Cohen.
In the Mets’ 10-3 loss to the Orioles on Tuesday night, the disgusted gambling man blasted MLB for its instant replay system, calling it “pathetic.”
The long rant stems from a call in the lower half of the first inning. Initially, the first base umpire blew up the appeal and Baltimore’s Ryan Mountcastle was ruled safe. Then there was a lengthy replay and Mountcastle turned out to be safe again, although it seemed pretty clear he was missing.
After the call from the replay crew, Cohen lambasted not only the missed call, but also the time it took for them to see the play again.
“These are the ones that just make you pull out the hair you left out. There is no reason for it to take so long. Are they worried about the pace of play? Nothing slows down the pace of the game more than that, ”broadcaster SNY said.
After the instant replay “confirmed” the questionable call, it prompted a second lick from Cohen.
“They take so long and they are wrong. I just don’t understand. How can that be? What’s the point of having a test if they don’t even get the calls correctly? It is pathetic. It’s just pathetic. You just have to take the whole system and throw it in the trash, ”Cohen said. “It’s a joke. It’s a total and total joke.
Ron Darling added that the call was “just awful” after the decision to replay.
