Same, COVID hit at the right perfect time to let them off the hook but the fans are resolute. Love it.Kudos to whoever found inflatable trash cans, I did not know those existed. I'm also glad to see that the pandemic didn't dampen baseball fans bitterness towards the astros.

Somehow, that Mets HBP isn’t reviewable. Why bother having replay for anything if a gamechanging play like that can’t be reviewed? They can review if a pitch hits a batter but not the location of where the pitch was when it hit the batter. Worst part is the umpire had it right the first time until he realized the ball hit the armguard and then his mind went blank to the rule. It is very different to have a batter get hit when he’s in the strike zone but it does happen. A professional umpire should be aware of it.
