Poll: Should Bud Selig overturn Jim Joyce's blown call that botched Armando Galarraga's perfect game?

June 3, 2010 |  9:39 am

After first base umpire Jim Joyce saw the tape, he realized he had made one of the biggest blunders of his career.

The Detroit Tigers led the Cleveland Indians, 3-0, with two outs in the ninth when Joyce erroneously called Jason Donald's grounder to first safe, ruining Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga's perfect game.

How should Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig proceed? Should Selig overturn the call, rewarding Galarraga what's rightfully his and saving Joyce years of hate mail? Or should Selig let the call stand?

Vote in the poll below and leave a comment explaining why you voted the way you did.
