08:24 AM ET 06.14 | Congratulations to R.A. Dickey for his near no-no Wednesday. [Dickey] pitched a complete game one-hitter -- but finally allowed a run -- helping the Mets roll to a 9-1 victory over the Rays. Dickey took a shutout to the ninth before a throwing error by David Wright and two passed balls by catcher Mike Nickeas helped the Rays score a run, ending Dickey's scoreless streak at a franchise record 32 2/3 innings. ... B.J. Upton's infield single in the first inning accounted for the Rays' only hit -- [David Wright] went for the bare-handed play on the slow grounder and missed. Manager Terry Collins said the Mets intend to appeal the scoring decision with the commissioner's office in hopes it will be changed to an error, but acknowledged it's unlikely the call will be overturned.

Only reason this has no comments is because he's a knuckleballer - There seems to be an extreme dislike for this pitch....!!!! ;-)

No matter what the feats it may bring.....

Didn't Johan catch a break on ball that hit the 3rd base foul line...and was called foul when it was actually fair? Get over it....calls are missed all of the time...if that gets overturned then why shouldnt Johan's?

One was an umpire judgement not reviewable. The other a scorer judgement, always changeable. They change those all the time.
Personally, I give give a hoot.

Terry Collins said it is a long shot but why not. I agree, why not try it? I would expect any team to do this.

And then why is the Galarraga not a not hitter? The game is over and Wright, even at his best wasn't going to get that...

June 14, 2012  03:49 PM ET

There is no way the Commissioner will change the ruling. The Mets must have forgot about the play in Detroit. Umps bad call cost their pitcher and that play was not over turn.

June 14, 2012  03:53 PM ET

Upton didn't get a great jump out of the box, but Wright didn't really know that. He knew how slowly the ball was hit and who was running....In hindsight, I think Wright could have fielded the ball with his glove and gotten the out. Wright's decision to field the ball bar-handed was his judgement and you can't call an error on judgement. Therefore: Base hit.
