  1. If you watch the game recap from Tigers game yesterday, there was a very similar play at the plate with the ball coming from shortstop. The Rays catcher was positioned almost exactly the same as Sanchez was and the Tigers runner slide head first on the 3rd bag side of the plate (as it was his open lane to the plate). He was also out. No review, no arguments. However, if the rule is related to the position of the catcher before the ball arrived, one could argue that the Rays catcher violated the exact same rule. Now the play in the twins game was a bit closer, but I still don’t see how a catcher could play it any differently or better. It’s not Sanchez’s fault that the runner didn’t take the open lane. Terrible rule and terrible interpretation by the NY review panel. Tough way to lose a game.
