Jim Leyland was frank with his comments about the blown call that prevented the Tigers from tying the Braves on Saturday. Unlike the Jim Joyce incident where Leyland praised Joyce's umpiring and didn't have too many negative things to say, on Saturday he said what all Tigers fans are thinking right now.
Leyland: "We should've had it tied. We should've got a walk there at the end."
Leyland: "You can't miss those pitches. You just can't miss those."
Leyland: "I don't need to comment. I know it was outside. The pitch wasn't close. It was that far outside."
As Leyland said and pictures show, the pitch wasn't even remotely close to being a strike.
