A week shortened by Memorial Day gives us a truncated list of Code violations.
Nearly everybody respected the Code during Roy Halladay’s perfect game (and those that didn’t still couldn’t jinx it).
Carlos Gomez put on a whale of a show while pimping his homer. His saving grace: contrition after the fact.
Jim Joyce blows a perfect game for Armando Galarraga. Had he hewn to the Code, he never would have made that mistake.
For those who thought Joyce set the umpiring profession back a generation, a Triple-A call-up showed them how it’s really done.
