In the debut episode of Baseball Bits, Foolish Baseball examines the controversial game-ending call in the July 26, 2011 game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Atlanta Braves. Umpire Jerry Meals set the baseball world ablaze when he called Julio Lugo safe, but was he correct all along?

___________________

Did Jerry Meals make the worst call ever? Or, was Julio Lugo safe? I make a deep dive into one of baseball's "wtf moments." Whether this is just another incident is of MLB idiot umps is up to the viewer, but I think there's an existing possibility that Lugo was safe on Scott Proctor's walk-off (or should I say fall off). We also learn a little bit about the MLB Instant Replay review process.
