Quote:
One day after CC Sabathia pitched a controversial one-hitter against Pittsburgh, Milwaukee's general manager said he may lobby to have changes made to the way official scoring decisions are made.

Doug Melvin said he thought there should be a committee to decide scoring decisions like the one that may have cost Sabathia a no-hitter in the Brewers' 7-0 victory over the Pirates on Sunday. One official scorer is used in all baseball games until the World Series, where a three-person panel reviews scoring plays.

"There could be possible reviews to see if there's a better way of doing it where there's not all the pressure put on one individual," Melvin said before his team's game Monday against the New York Mets.

What is a particular joke is that the Pirates scorekeeper, from the many games I have observed, is actually pretty fair. Some of these guys are so pro-home team that it is a joke. For example, the "base hit" that Paul Maholm gave up to the Marlins early in the season on a dribbler right back to the mound with two outs. He kicked the ball, and it was ruled a hit. Later, Maholm gives up a grand slam and is charged with 5 earned runs when in fact 4 of those runs were due to his clear error.
